Once a thread or user profile URL is created,
it cannot be changed (unless the mods know something I don’t), although the title of the thread or the user’s username can be.
While this causes no issue with threads, it can result in an inability to access the profiles of users with changed names.
So, 1) if your name has changed, please register here with your original name, and
2) if you know of another user’s changed name, especially if that user is no longer an active member of the community (ah, I just found [bpt]’s profile), please
post the original, old-timers!
Newbies, remember to replace spaces in names with a dash [-] in the profile URL – otherwise, you’ll just get an error page.
Eftachbchinor – originally [evtachbchinor]
Letakein Girl – originally [letakein]

Will someone PUH-LEEZE enlighten me as to what URL stands for!October 2, 2014 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #1214685
A uniform resource locator (abbreviated URL ; also known as a Web address , particularly when used with HTTP) is a specific character string that constitutes a reference to a resource Most web browsers display the URL of a web page above the page in an address bar . A typical URL might look like: http://www.example.org/wiki/Main_Page
Basically, the web address.
When Randomex says:
Newbies, remember to replace spaces in names with a dash [-] in
the profile URL – otherwise, you’ll just get an error page.
he is referring to:
If you click on “catch yourself” or “dunno what name”‘s, you will get:
bbPress – Error
User not found.
Back to YWN Coffee Room.
and the URL will be:
dunno what name:
Notice the “%20” instead of spaces in the username.
dunno what name:
and now it will give you the correct page.
To go to any member’s profile page, change “catch-yourself” or dunno-what-name” to a different username. For example, my profile is:

URL is short for Universal Resource Locator. In other words, it’s the link that’s in the address bar in your browser. Welcome to the CR btw…enjoy your stay!!

If a username ends with “(Joseph),” ignore that part of the name.

peacefull (that is a very full SN!), technically one screen name per person, however this doesn’t seem to be strictly enforced.October 22, 2014 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #1214702
Current: DaasYochid – apparently originally [Daas-Yochid] (with a space). (An empty “DaasYochid” profile exists – it maght have been made by somebody who tried to mimic people’s usernames a couple of years ago.)
Current: “showjoe” – originally “sh0wj0e”
(There is a [different] profile at showjoe, probably an old account of his.)
Thanks! (I hadn’t realized Oomis had been here so long!)
Unless the mods were mistaken, you forgot one. (I think I need permission from you before the mods will let me post it.)
Anyway, this isn’t about users who’ve changed accounts – it’s about screennames that don’t match their profile URLs. Yours is linked to the correct URL anyway – I assume that’s because your old “HaLeiVi” account was already occupying that URL.
Glad to have you, though! 🙂November 6, 2014 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #1214704
I didn’t read this thread so my question might have been answered already- but why is it that when I click on my username, it says “error user not found”, but when I click on my username on top of the page where it says “welcome, evtachbchinor” (notice the original spelling), I can see all my info? Can you mods change that so that others can also see my occupation, interests, etc? Maybe it has to do with the slight changing of my name.November 6, 2014 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1214705
Your profile page is based on your original name i.e evtach so eftach leads to nowhere. For some reason, your name at the top of the page will always link to your actual profile page. I’ve wondered though why the moderators don’t just make the names of those with changed names (or those with spaces in their names) link to their actual profile page. Clearly this can be done, seeing as several people’s names link to pages other than their profile. Perhaps it would require too much effort.November 6, 2014 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #1214706

To what? It already goes to your profile page.November 7, 2014 4:48 am at 4:48 am #1214714HaLeiViParticipant
Random, you mean Cedahurst? That is probably Joseph. I don’t know why they put that name on to me. If you know of another please let me know.
My link was changed by a mod (forgot which one).
For anyone intersted, I made the RuffRuff account when the original HaLeiVi was mistakenly blocked. I figured it was a mistake and would soon be corrected. After not getting a response I figured I’ll complain on the forum, hence the name RuffRuff.November 9, 2014 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1214719showjoeParticipant
ya, now it goes to my current one.
