How about all users to have www.travellerspoint.com/theirprofilename

I even thought I saw someone have this

profilename.travellerspoint.com is reserved for people's blogs. Your suggestion wouldn't work due to possible clashes between existing pages and usernames - but I do agree that it would be slightly better to have www.travellerspoint.com/member/profilename rather than the current www.travellerspoint.com/member_profile.cfm?user=profilename - that's mostly the age of the site showing through, from before pretty URLs were common, and changing it now would require changes in a whole lot of places, which just hasn't been gotten around to yet.

Sander: Aware that clashes would be likely with usernames etc, wondered if there was something in palce to prevent clashes such as a user profile being called "Home". Which is a little ironic when the website is about travel!

Crikey! May I ask who is that?

He likes yaks! He's one of the top 3 contributors of the travel guide.

Great! He wrote alot about Tampere! Was planning to fly there in May but due to lack of hostels will omit flying there then a few days later taking the 2 hour train to Helsinki.

Interestly I added my first Wiki entry here regarding Da Nang and it turned out he has alo written about it!

We are both 26 and he is from the Windy ciy! I am very windy. Chicago is one of my top 3 cities in America, along with NY and San Diego.

Waiting to see San Fran and Colorado state (my 21st state)

We do prevent a bunch of usernames from being registered, yeah ("www" and such) - although I'm not certain about "home" in particular... :)

Coincidentally, he was online at the same time, editing some articles. He saw your one-liner tip and "fixed" it by adding a template (with all the headings) and a photo to it. :) Feel free to write more!
