Description David 2007-05-29 19:23:33 UTC
I'd like to see a function to check whether or not user account exists for the specified string.

{{#ifuserexist: Humperdink|[[User:Humperdink]] is|Humperdink is not}} a registered username.

Would not really want this sort of thing in the markup system.
Comment 2 David 2007-05-31 19:31:32 UTC
Why not?  What issues would there be with such a function?

Content (which is portable) should never depend on the local user database (which is not).
