The user Akhil is listed twice, and he has different reputation/badges in each instance! Is this a bug that can be fixed, that is, is this something that might happen again with other proposals/users and should be checked out?

By the way, the link to the mathematics proposal is here, but as I said, the duplicate might disappear soon.

ADDED: When you click on the first profile, you get his math.stackexchange profile, but when you click on the second profile, you get a "page not found". mmmm...

  • @badp, looks like they are already merged. But it's not handled correctly. So yes, it is a bug. Jul 31, 2010 at 21:51
  • @Ladybug: I can still see it there....

This is fixed now. User accounts no longer show up in "Top Users" once they have been removed.
