Try the following: go to the Users page of, say, EL&U. Type wai in the search box. Go ahead, I'll wait.

Interesting, no?

Not a major issue, just an anomaly. I'm guessing it has to do with the new "search anywhere in the name" functionality?

  • I just found out that spoiler tag just change text color to match background color "#EEE", it does not hide the content, so It will not work with images.

Probably the bug is because there is two "wai" in the name :D

If you search "ana" in meta, you can see two copies like this too

    Oh, it's quite obviously due to the same string occurring twice in the username. Well, it's obvious to me. A nontechnical user might get horribly confused, though.
