I think this has deal with a Database issue as you said. The system is looking for the code where {recipiant} can’t find your user name so it places that in there rather then just removing it if nothing is found. Ill forward this to the team. 

Hello! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This is not intended behavior. There appears to be a small error with our Forum partners backend and we hope to have this resolved ASAP.


PS: Love that intro!

Thanks for your replys. I also figured it would be a backend problem (link broke, name issue, DB service stoppe, etc.), but you and your partner know that aswell. But I’m happy to contribute to this friendly community in every way.

PS: “persons of the absence of light” has something mystical so I thought it fit’s. Since I am going to game and compute on a system I only can belive in, but will never touch.
