Tech talk:User's talk page link contains plus instead of space
Real newbie question I can't find the answer to..
Swept in from en:pub:
what's the little red flashing dot next to the "my talk" ?? I click on "my talk" and there's nothing there. I can't click on the dot itself... If I have a new message waiting... how to I get there? Occasional Traveller 07:46, 23 June 2008 (EDT)
I can see the message when I go to my User page, then click Discussion, but not when I go to "my talk" page. One difference I notice is that on "my talk", it says: :User talk:Occasional+Traveller" whereas when I go to my User page then to Discussion, it says: "User talk:Occasional Traveller" (notice no '+' sign in my username). I also have a username with a space (and apparently the same name with an underscore in place of the space... )... can I change it? That red dot is really bugging me... (>.<) !!

This bug is already reported, see shared:Tech:User's talk page link contains plus instead of space and shared:Tech:Rein N. becomes ReinplusN. when I click my talk in menu -- Sergey kudryavtsev 16:22, 23 June 2008 (EDT)
