This relates to bugreport 1058.

When my username is clicked on, the message will show up that I'm not found. Ideal to protect my privacy, but of course I'd like to show off my gameslist to anyone interested.
Is the reason maybe because I have put an + before and after my name?

I am aware that a bugreport should be sufficient to start the chain of events which ultimately will lead to fixing the bug, but since it's been a couple of weeks and no activity has been shown, maybe someone knows more about this particular issue.

Thanks for your attention.

Correct. It's the +

I clicked +P'ther as well; didn't work.

It's a known issue with mod_rewrite. Perhaps I can work around it.

It occurs to me that a quick update query on all user names replacing the the + sign with its html-encoding, and then html-encoding all user names in future might do the trick.

Thanks for all replies.

Is a solution imminent or shall I change my username (if possible)?

Can't change my username, as I have discovered.
What is the status of solving this bug?
