  • Steve Machol is Bogus!

    Steve Machol is just Bogus!

    Not my opinion, but it seems to be the opinion of vBulletin:

      No, you can select it, but it will return a username that doesn't exist: "SteveMachol (Bogus)" (notice the missing space between Steve & Machol)

        As soon as you type in Steve M his name shows up.

        I assume that it orders names by the alphabet, and doesn't list all of them if there are a lot. No idea why the bogus name shows up though

          I tried a few more strings, but the only place where i could get this was with "steve".

          PS This looks to me like a developers joke.

                It was someone who exploited an ancient bug that has since been fixed to produce a username that looked like Steve Machol but in fact was not.

                The bug was fixed a long time ago, we just never got around to zapping the user... I've now renamed that user to 'I am not Steve Machol'...

                  Aw.. the original way was much more entertaining somewhat.
                  Congratulations on the death of vBulletin, Internet Brands.

                    Wow, that's a relief. My wife was afraid she's have to find another me.

                        Kinda disappointing outcome.

                        But it explains why the space was removed after selecting.

                          She should be happy! She could then put one of you in her living room and one of you in the dark room with the computer win/win
