I just tried to update my profile on SEDE, but got a crash (the ASP.Net yellow screen of death) when I clicked save.

Does the "about me" section support markdown (like the other SOFU sites), as I was trying to edit that info and was including markdown in it?

A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (AboutMe="...Server. <br/> <br/> My (lo...").

I'll get it sorted.

Ta. "I'll get it sorted" - does that mean support for markdown in the about box? – adrianbanks Jun 13 '10 at 23:18
I'll make sure its aligned with the SO profile editor – waffles Jun 13 '10 at 23:56
Its now inline with the SO profile editor, markdown and some html allowed – waffles Jun 14 '10 at 7:47
This is an old post, but this happened to me just now: I logged in using myopenid, noticed that my profile showed up as "hmemcpy1". When I clicked "Edit" to try and remove the "1", upon saving I got a YSOD. – Igal Tabachnik Dec 14 '10 at 9:25
