BIG problem on my side
Our forum user accounts are getting mixed up. I log in with my own account and when I see again I am logged in as someone else, just any other random forum user. Others have reported the same. What could it be?
The session validation was set to "none", which I now switched to A.B..but it's still happening. Any advice would be appreciated!!

None. Several users complained about not being able to access the forum. I contacted the ISP to check the blacklist for blocked IP addresses. They said there was a "server issue" and "high load" which prevented the users from accessing the site.
Please describe your problem.
While I am logged in, my user is suddenly switched to a different user. The user accounts are getting mixed up. Other users reported the same behaviour. They would suddenly be logged in as a different user and when trying to log out get the following error:
"You were not logged out as the request did not match your session"
