I know this will sound quite localized and don't know if it's a duplicate but I feel it like a bug. Well, in short:

  1. I've been searching for a user whose display name is Warren P
  2. So I went to Users tab and typed warren p knowing the search is case insensitive and here is the result:

enter image description here

So, how can I find this guy or the others using the similar nick pattern through the users tab search ?

  • I'm confused. You got three results, and none of them are Warren P. The user you're looking for doesn't appear to exist. – Robert Harvey Aug 24 '12 at 21:24

    @RobertHarvey That username is actually a link. They definitely exist. – blahdiblah Aug 24 '12 at 21:26
  • @Robert, forgot to mention, I haven't tried this for the others with the similar nick pattern... – TLama Aug 24 '12 at 21:27
  • Weirdly, Warren B shows up just fine in the search. It's just Warren P who isn't properly included. – blahdiblah Aug 24 '12 at 21:28

Warren P has two spaces in his user name, between "Warren" and "P".

    Is there any way to discover that? It's certainly not displayed with two spaces. – blahdiblah Aug 24 '12 at 21:32
  • @blahdiblah: Inspect the element containing his username. There's two spaces in the source. It's just your browser collapses them into one. – animuson Aug 24 '12 at 21:33

    I see, so just on the profile page it's trimmed to only one space. Thanks! Then would be fine to trim these spaces between at registration (profile change) pages since it's quite confusing and I don't think someone would like to have display name with more than one space between. – TLama Aug 24 '12 at 21:38

    @TLama feature-request? – yoozer8 Aug 24 '12 at 22:44

    Sounds like a neat way to hide from inquiring minds. – Michael Petrotta Aug 25 '12 at 0:24
