You very well figured this out already or else you wouldn't have changed your user name accordingly.

But lets indulge you since it seems to amuse you and I like to make people smile.

The URL for the user page replaces (for whatever reason) every blank in the user name with the plus sign, hence my own user page is

http://www.invelos.com/UserProfile.aspx?alias=DJ+Doena

You can also see it on the contribution vote page when someone with a space in his/her username votes, like "Pitch+Black" or "Der+Brennmeister".

Now when someone actually has a plus sign in his username the site gets confused because internally it translates that + back to a space and then can't find the user in the database.


Here's a smiley for a rainy day for you:

Yes, it would be this.
But I found it is not needed. Your user profile comes up normally.

Really?  Posting in the forums isn't a very good way to go about hiding.

He's right, the user does not come up:

http://www.invelos.com/UserProfile.aspx?alias=Audi+Golf

The only thing I can think, is the user changed his name after the submission. But I thought the site could handle that?

If someone can submit data and obfuscate themselves like this while doing so, that could be a way they could abuse the system and database. Not good.

You misunderstood. The user didn't change the name. It's just the system creates an incorrect link to the user profile when the user name contains the character +
Just replace the + with %2B in the link and you can access the user page.
