    You can't link to a uid by a number.
    Is this a triumph over the number of the beast? 😕 I liked being a number. 🙁

    FAQ: "In order to create links you should enter the following codes when writing your message/post:

    Link to a User's profile: @username (Replace spaces with hyphens)..."

    Appears to accept all lower case when upper case is involved. @chesspraxis

    Yeah but it used to work with the [uid][/uid] thingy. 😕
    And there is no longer a number visible in the whizbang gizmo. 😕

    Maybe it was an operational efficiency change during the recent brief outage. No uid identity for the software to assign, track and display now that the member's nickname characters are used. The incremental savings in code, space and processing nano seconds times daily member activity volumes must be significant. Eric would know; I'm just guessing in layman terms.

    I liked the fact that I had a 5-digit number.

    I liked the fact that all the numbers were sequential, meaning you could get an idea of longevity by the number.

    if thou were an ant,
    and in an antfarm living...
    and found yer captors wanting,
    could you be forgiving???

    for now we find ourselves,
    inside a great glass jar...
    seeking interest in mundane affairs,
    while sporting multicolored avatars...
