Well since the link from the game that you click on when you have a problem takes you to a close thread I thought this would be a good start. And now instead of making a whole new thread for one problem we could post it here and keep the home page for the Forums neater and more informative, if you will.

    "[" and "]" aren't traditionally supported characters in URLs. They're considered "unsafe" characters, and their alternate encoded character ID must be used instead.

    When typing your name in the "/players/[name]" (ooh, so unsafe of me) part of the URL, you have to use the encoded variant of such characters.

    [ = %5B
    ] = %5D

    So in this case, your name would appear like this in the URL
    http://www.deepworldgame.com/players/%5BCreativeNameHere%5D

    For any name containing special characters, including spaces, question marks, brackets, etc, this will ALWAYS be the case. No exceptions.

    This *should* work, but it doesn't seem to. For example, try looking up [blackbird]'s profile on the codex. Using the codes makes it try to go to the correct page, and even corrects the URL, but it still returns an error.

    When you log into the Codex, it should default you to your user page. Does it give an error when you click your name?

    Also, if this is the case, maybe @mikelaurence could offer some help???

    Well, the codex doesn't abide by the laws of the internet, apparently. Typing in http://www.deepworldgame.com/players/[ebl] returned the player [EBL]. (Which is [EBL] fantastic, if I may add)

    LOL, even the codex itself can't make proper links to its own profile pages of names with square brackets in them. If you look down near the bottom of the leaderboard page in the items crafted section, there's someone named [DEATH], but if you click on the name, you end up at the error page.

    You literally have to type the brackets into the web address to get to the page you're supposed to, HA! What a pain. I wonder if [Deleted] has figured this out already...

    Literally, you have to use "unsafe characters" in the URL for it to work!!!! (i.e. DO NOT encode the brackets)

    And working with weeb-design for long enough, this looks hella uncomfortable to me. Like a spam link containing a trojan uncomfortable. THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE THOSE!!

    When I click on those, it says the page doesn't exist. Could this be related to the browser I'm using somehow? I'm using Firefox.

    Firefox probably automatically encodes the brackets. Try to Copy and paste them into your address bar, and see if that works. On Google Chrome, it works fine.
