Description Robin Krahl 2010-01-12 14:39:10 UTC
If the you edit a (not existing) userpage of a registered user whos name starts with one or more *, you get a funny list instead of the username because the * is interpreted as a <li>. Unfortunately, I haven’t found the according system message. Maybe a nowiki ([[User:$1|<nowiki>$1</nowiki>]]) would solve the problem?
