Hi,
I'm unable to visit anything related to my profile. I suspect it's due to the special character plus space in my username.
Is it a possibility?
Thanks,

Lux

Yeah, most likely it's just not being escaped properly. It should be converted to %C3%86 but it's staying in the original form.
Life, it's funny that way.

Hey Lux, as predicted it's the special character that's causing issues in this case. It was something that we accounted for the beta registration page, but forgot about here. facepalm I've added a fix to standardise the two which will go live with the next site update.

With respect to this we'll need to username a little so it meets the site conventions. I've changed it to Lux AEterna for the time being. Are you happy with that, or is there another tag or variation you would like?

Hey Jack, thank you for coming back at me so quickly!
It's fine, thank you very much :) am I going to be able to change it when the sites gets updated? If so, how?
Thanks for your time,

Lux

Why not just URI encode/decode the special characters?
