This page is needed because having a colon in the URL ":" Breaks external hyperlinks to my Profile page.
This would be like me going through and marking all the pages that are redirected from something without a closing bracket (steam bug when you send a link it removes the trailing closing bracket - people have redirected pages that are invalid to the real page simply because of this steam bug)
See something like Bounce_(level_design)
If you sent that link in steam the closing bracket ")" would be cut off from the hyperlink rendering it useless and therefor a redirect is needed from this page Bounce_(level_design (notice no closing bracket)
I need this redirection for a very similar reason. I am linking my ModDB profile here and it will not accept Colons in the URL. This page isn't going to be taken or reserved for anyone else so i'm sorry whoever marked this deletion but it would be nice to contact me, the person who wrote the redirect first to find out why.
Either ModDB needs to fix their URL support/Steam needs to fix that closing bracket bug
I keep this page and others keep redirecting broken links to the real ones. --Jenkins08 06:49, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
- Fine, but i haven't heard about this problem before, so make sure it's not something on your end. Solokiller 13:05, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
