To give another deviant a direct link to this FAQ answer, use the following code in your comment or forum post:
My friends username has a dash before, after it or both and I cannot access their page. Why is this?
This is normal as they're not standard host naming (aka considered illegal char naming). In IE such usually works, however not in Firefox or on Linux.
To stop this we no longer permit dashes at the beginning and end of usernames.
If you have an account with such, you may wish to create a new username or perhaps use the Username Change feature
which is available to Premium Members only.
