Blech, this has just finally gotten annoying. Every time you click my name or try to go to my profile, it goes to "1993white626"s profile. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Thanx for your time.

I actually have no idea why it is doing that or how to fix it. I assume it has to do with the Apache mod that replaces URLs with natural language (to make us more comfy to the search engines). But I have no idea why it would transpose those profiles.

I will do some research and see if I can find a solution.

Thanx a lot for that.

Yeah, it was funny at first, but I was hoping when we switched servers or whatever it was to what we have now it'd get fixed, but.. Nope. :tdown:

Oh well, lol. Thanx again though.

Not sure but maybe Apache has a URL Rewrite module like IIS 7 does where you could make rule to redirect for this case.

It does, but it is all handled automatically and the list of URL replacements is HUGE. I have never looked at the list much less the source code.
I am expecting that maybe installing the latest patch and rebuilding the URL replacement list will fix this. It may be a little while before that happens though. I have to get approval before doing anything that will max out the server for a few hours.

You could make a new profile, re-name it and give him the karma/post count back be easier?
I wouldn't mind that personally, as my 6 is no longer white and have no plans on it being white again, haha.

But either way, all I want is a working profile. :tdown:

We could also try just changing your screen name.

Hmm, let's give it a shot...

I don't believe " A Simple MX6" is taken... Thats my screen name on a few other sites, so it'd be easier to remember, lol

Thanx again, by the way
