Opening specific status update link allows me to post as 'Guest'

Thanks, this should now be fixed.

Browser, version and OS: applicable to at least Chrome/Edge/Firefox, current versions on Windows 10.

Spoiler

Chrome: Version 85.0.4183.102

Edge: Version 85.0.564.51

FireFox: 80.0.1

Steps to reproduce/what were you doing before it happened?

Opening a specific status update link* (with some notification parameters) in a browser where you're not logged in (such as an incognito window) allows me to reply to said status update as a "Guest".

Clicking on a timestamp under any of the replies shows me a "Complete your profile" page, which tells me to insert my e-mail and display name, which I assume is what new users see when signing up.

 

*this status update link (with its parameters) probably came form those "popup" notifications in the bottom (left) of your screen (but was just normally copied from the browser's URL bar). 

 

What happened?

Opening a status update in an incognito window showed me signed up as 'Guest' and allowed me to comment as such user.

 

What did you expect to happen?

Normally you wouldn't see a reply box and a "Sign up" button

 

Link to a page where it happened, if applicable: 

I don't think sharing the link would be a great idea in this case, so I think sharing it via PM is a better.

It's a normal status update link, but with a 'fromNotification' & 'notificationToken' parameters.

 

Screenshots of the issue, if applicable:

Clicking on any link:

Normally:

(no "Reply to this status" option, "Sign Up" button and clicking on a link works as it should).

 

If it's a cloudflare error, what was the ray ID from the bottom of the error page? 

N/A

I think I know what this link will look like, but can you pm it to me as a sanity check while I investigate?
