Why isn't custom user picker field retaining user name?

I created a new user picker field and when i create a ticket, I can select a user just as I should be able to. Once the tickets been created, it appears that this field is now blank and I need to go back and edit the ticket, re-enter the user and the name is retained in the field. Why isn't it retaiing the user during the creation stage?

This widget could not be displayed.

The issue was that the field was defaulting to a custom field and the post function needed to be moved below the indexing step.
