Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Without using a web search, is there a way to find the URL or an user knowing only the nickname?
The alternative could be to search the user's main page URL, or is there a page that list all users URLs?

Nicknames are not unique; you'd have to search on a site's Users page (on the all tab) to match nicknames to user ids.

In other words, there is no guarantee I am the only one using the nickname "Martijn Pieters" on Stack Overflow, so there is no one-to-one mapping to a user URL for that nickname.

It's fairly safe to say that if they don't answer a question in 2 seconds - it's not you though ;) – Jon Clements Dec 21 '12 at 23:11
