Users showing up as " Guest " on a phpBB forum

I am a Moderator on a phpBB forum -

Registered users , when posting , show up as a " Guest " on the forum ..

Is there anything that I , as a Moderator , can do to fix this ( i.e. - put the username in the post )

Note - I am just a Moderator , and do not have access to the Administrative User Control Panel

Thank you

No, with only moderator access you can't fix it. You'd need to modify the database directly to change the historical data, and possibly modify code if there is something causing sessions to be lost and posts to go through as guests.

@Robert Gentel,
Thank you !

Hate to ask - but do you have any idea what the code to enter might be ? ( I can pass the information along to the Administrators )

The first place I'd look is to see if the setting in the admin panel for the cookie domain is correct (the most compatible would be to make it the site's domain without www or any folders). But it could be a number of other things that I can't begin to guess at as well.
