Well, see for yourself:

On other sites that I checked the user names are trimmed, so it appears to be local problem with the Data Explorer site only.

Despite being fixed, the fix is still not pushed and the bug still exists.

Hmm, I had meant to fix that a while ago before anyone noticed, but I guess I forgot. At any rate, it's fixed in the next build > 2012.9.7.6 (may be a few days).

    I'm not, just a meddler :) (SEDE is open source) – Tim Stone Dec 17 '12 at 14:27
  • Nice, had no idea it's open source. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 17 '12 at 14:36
  • Hmm.. version is still 2012.9.7.6 - when and how a build is rolled in there? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 24 '12 at 11:53
  • Yeah, someone has to pull the changes and kick off the TeamCity build, which I can't do. I'm on vacation until the 26th, but I'll get it sorted out when I get back. – Tim Stone Dec 24 '12 at 11:59
  • Can it be that the team is doing this on purpose i.e. decided to shut down Data Explorer? Site that can't be updated is dead anyway. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Apr 28 '13 at 10:50
  • Not at all, they're just busy with other things. – Tim Stone Apr 28 '13 at 10:52
  • I see, but still... they will always be busy. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Apr 28 '13 at 10:54
  • Heh, I suppose that's true. Believe me, if I could do it myself, I would. :P – Tim Stone Apr 28 '13 at 10:56
  • maybe worth trying feature request asking for such a thing? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Apr 28 '13 at 10:58
  • Whoops, didn't get properly notified of your last comment. A feature request to update the code? You could do that, I asked directly about doing so a week or so ago and was told there was a lot going on at the moment. – Tim Stone Apr 30 '13 at 22:50
  • You mean this? :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 1 '13 at 6:40
