Online users bug on refresh



  • Steps to repro:

    Go to Users
    Click Online
    Refresh the page

    Expected: Page refreshed.
    Actual: Taken to @Online's user profile.



  • I wonder if that's only a bug because someone noticed the way that it structures the URLs the same and cheekily made a user named @online (which, BTW, is apparently a nightmare to try and autofill since there's a large volume of spam users that appear in that list), or if that user is actually needed for some part of the system's inner workings to work....

    Nope. That's a CS "user."

  • That's because I noticed bots 404ing on /users/* and set a redirect.
