The PM link translates extended characters to code, but the User Profile link fails to do so.  The example, below:  "å" vs "%26%23229%3b" renders Flåklypa's User Profile inaccessible without some "URL-fu."

Reproducable!
And http://www.invelos.com/UserProfile.aspx?Alias=Flåklypa respectively http://www.invelos.com/UserProfile.aspx?Alias=Fl%E5klypa don't work either.

But, OH MY GOD ... %26%23229%3b ... seriously? That is å encoded again ... 

Encodeception ...

No it didn´t. It looked like "Flåklypa" before (I think) and that is what I enter in the "User setting". But when I go to the settings again it looks like this: Flåklypa
So something has changed, but not in a good way. 
Is this site heading in this    direction ?

Yeah, it looked borked yesterday, but now it is clean utf-8 and it works  ... so Ken is still active despite all the nay-sayers!

It's working again!     
This time I made a screenshot for documenting purposes 

or http://www.dvd-welt.de/privat/tempfiles/Flaklypa.png in case anyone has problems with utf-8-URLs, which they shouldn't this day and age.
