Looks like the author link is broken for all archived posts.

That sure looks like the problem. The most recent posts with this problem are the most recently archived posts from a month ago. The links still work for all the comments though.

Replace "mefi" with "user" in the link and you'll get the author page.

hilariously sloppy.

No, no, not sloppy at all. It brings with it an awesome game! I call it "How many licks does it take to get to the center?"

Uh...because I suck at naming things.

This particular thread takes 3 licks.

After three licks and it's still not sloppy, you're just not licking it right.

Either Matt fixed it or your problem is not affecting my browser (FireFox 1.0).

and you could easily determine which by looking at the url's.

I fixed this a while back, but some old threads that were already stored with the messed up code persist. I'll eventually have to wipe out all the old archives, and when I do the problem will fix itself.

Not affecting my browser either.
