This is why we need some sort of system to purge abandoned accounts! That guy joined, never made a single post, and never came back after that day, which was only about 8 freaking years ago. Why on earth would his account still need to be in the system? I bet you'd cut the number of registered users in half if you deleted all the accounts that haven't been active in over 12 months. Save on server costs and whatnot, those accounts have to eat up storage space. Plus when your browsing the member list looking for someone it seems for every account with over 1k posts there's a dozen that have less than 10. It takes forever to find who you're looking for because of all the old accounts.

He may have signed up, went out and gotten incarcerated and be waiting to get back on the site, who knows. But in the meantime, you should be ok now.

Yes I'm sure that's what happened. He was locked up at 16 and is still serving time but in his free time he dreams of coming home to browse ca.com

I was being serious with my suggestion. You could even make it 2 years of inactivity and that would still take out a good chunk of those dead accounts...

Somehow the way its reading his username is definitely screwing things up. Never seen that before...

No, but vendor members can make their profile pink :) or change anything about the look of it.

The only thing I know for you to do is to change your username. Just let me know what you want it changed to. Sorry, just a bug in the software.

It has something to do with the SEO urls and how it converts them to SEO friendly, I think.

me thinks it has something to do with the URL not being properly encoded when you click on a link.

nonetheless if you could change it back to "Kangaroux" that would be awesome. i had actually tried changing it back to that a couple days ago, but it said that username was already taken, so it's like it kept my old username somewhere even though I had changed it already. if you can't change it to that, "double deez" is fine

I got it changed over. Yea, its the SEO software screwing up the urls when certain characters are inserted as I suspected.
