The link to my profile is not working Answered

If I try to get to my own profile through the menu at the top of the page (see screenshot) I always end up on an error page that says 'ERROR 400: no member: -
ERROR 400: no member:'

Looks like the URL in that link is malformatted.

Screenshot shows the error message as well as the menu entry I clicked to get there.

Ayup. That's right, that's what it should say.

But it's not 'the computer' that should be putting that in, it should be coded into the website. Either statically or dynamically, either will work.

I posted it in the Bugs section, I assume that's where bugs go.

Well, the profile is still visible through the normal links.

Which ones are those?

When I'm wandering around on the site, I only know this way to get back to my profile. So there's another way? Pray tell!

Those links are available when I'm in the forum, or on an I'ble where I've made a comment. But most of the time, that's not the case.

In any case, it's still a bug. And worth pointing out, I believe.

Definitely worth pointing out, I was really just letting you know your profile still exists...

Ah, got it. Cheers.

Well, I managed to get there by clicking around (like going to the settings page first, things like that). But it's not convenient and most likely not as intended. So let's hope a fixing is in our future.
