Our username show up instead of our title (Asker/Opinion owner/Take owner) when we reply.
I don't know why did they update that as we were no longer be able to @mention asker as it was actually a user of this site, but she's not active anymore so, there shouldn't be any kind of misunderstanding.
But now, I will have to double check time and again after every new notification whether the asker/opinion owner replied or a third person.

Eh, it doesn't bug me too much. It just took a second to get used to because I don't always see or remember the askers' usernames. I thought one user was responding to my opinion because he had a similar issue (as it showed his username and not "asker") and was commenting on my post because he wanted advice as well. I'm glad I checked before responding because I would've looked like a fool.0

It's confusing and I don't like it. I don't always remember the Asker or Opinion Owner's username --- and I think other people will have this problem as well --- which can make conversation threads confusing without double-checking who wrote the Question or Initial Reply.
Best thing to do would be to have BOTH names on a post (i. e. the writer's username and their status as ASKER or OPINION OWNER on the same line in parentheses or something).1
