When I try to access https://superuser.com/users/flag-weight/dragonlord I get a 500 eror. However, accessing https://superuser.com/users/flag-weight/73918 does not.

Can this be handled more gracefully, such as attempting to looking up the correct user ID?

1 Answer 1


How is this a bug? User names aren't unique. I could change my name to "DragonLord" right now.

  • Thank you. I personally felt that there was a better way to handle this.
