Workaround for the broken journal links

Just in case you haven’t figured this out already:

If you want to see the journal for a game’s author from the entry’s page, it isn’t working atm. A quick workaround (after clicking the link) is to copy or write the author’s name after a “=” just at the end of the adress bar of your browser. This would look like this:

Before:

After:

http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/category/ld-22/?author_name=tcstyle

I’m doing this a lot actually to make my mind about the community rating for games I rate. So go rate many of all these wonderful games!

    I noticed this too, lets pray to SoS or PoV so they can fix it :)

    It’s been bugged since the last compo; I noticed it during the Horror miniLD. =(

    How do you find an author’s username from their display name, though? For example, this entry’s from “Peter Cooper”, but that isn’t his username:

    Ah. I forgot that case. There was a workaround as well. Iirc the search can help.
