18) Celren Level 50 Dire Raider (Half-Orc)
19) Kili Level 50 Paladin (Half-Orc)
20) Efac Level 50 Necromancer (Drow Elf)
21) Muta Level 50 Warrior (Ogre)
22) Omolimir Level 50 Psionicist (Illithid)
23) Usir Level 50 Rogue (Half-Orc)
24) Torlom Level 50 Bard (Shield Dwarf)
25) Xumos Level 50 Rogue (Yuan-Ti)
26) Gobbluth Level 50 Battlechanter (Half-Orc)
27) Xoma Level 50 Anti-Paladin (Half-Orc)
28) Tokor Level 50 Warrior (Shield Dwarf)
29) Dorla Level 50 Elementalist (Shield Dwarf)
30) Corla Level 50 Rogue (Shield Dwarf)
31) Asani Level 50 Rogue (Moon Elf)
32) Elata Level 50 Lich (Drow Elf)
33) Anewa Level 50 Illusionist (Drow Elf)
34) Lifle Level 50 Rogue (Halfling)
35) Ssuxe Level 42 Elementalist (Yuan-Ti) <---- This character is actually 50.
36) Kelthas Level 25 Ranger (Human)
37) Parus Level 23 Necromancer (Human)
38) Kulladolram Level 18 Warrior (Duergar)
39) Kildran Level 1 Cleric (Human)
40) Pepole Level 1 Warrior (Halfling)
41) Nonvdisonvifkps Level 1 Shaman (Ogre) <--- I've deleted this character and it keeps coming back.
42) Kussa Level 21 Necromancer (Yuan-Ti)
43) Irena Level 1 Rogue (Drow Elf) <---- This character is actually 50.
44) Hoti Level 48 Dire Raider (Orc) <--- This character unlinks every time I quit out fully.

Ssuxe was the first character where I started to see bugs again (they happened a while ago, but sorted themselves out somehow). I reordered her to sit below my most recent 50, but the level displayed won't change. Kussa was rolled next and set aside for Irena, whose proper level and position at #36 won't stick. Hoti gets unlinked every time I quit out of the game entirely.

I've tried many combinations of dying, renting, camping, saving, quitting, and none have helped. One strange thing to note is that because I typically have 2 Toril tabs open (one just idles in the character menu), if I link Hoti or make an order change on one tab, it does display correctly when I open the second and login. But when I log out on both, all those changes disappear. I don't know if it's important or not, but a few characters (Hoti and Irena included) were created on a different account than @gormal. If I drop link on Irena and close zMUD, she displays as 50 when I log back in. But if I rent her out or she voids and I reconnect, she's back to 1 in my selection screen.

Thanks, that level of detail is really helpful.

I have an idea on what the underlying issue is, but I'm not sure yet. This data will help a lot, and if anyone has more detail like this please post it.

This is fixed now. Thanks for the help identifying the issue.

It turns out that it was a problem that only affected people who first created their accounts during a specific time period, which is why many players were unaffected. Character lists should stay in sync now, but may need to be linked/unlinked one last time.
