I don't know if anybody else has to make URLs to hub entries now and then, but I have to do it all the time and I got tired of the noisy syntax:

http://www.byond.com/hub/hub.cgi?hub=Dantom.Hublib

(Even worse is using the syntax employed by the hub internally where you have to know the numerical id of the hub entry.)

Fortunately, a little webserver magic has made it possible to do it like this:

http://www.byond.com/hub/Dantom/Hublib

Please use that syntax from now on when making links to hub entries. I'll switch over the hub itself at some point too.

Pretty slick! But what about urls like:

http://www.byond.com/hub/AirMapster

I would think that would go to my BYOND Portfolio page, which is currently http://www.byond.com/hub/ hub.cgi?qd=hubIndex;author=airmapster;category=all

Now that's a clever idea! (No sarcasm, either!)

Ooh. Good point. But should this go to your "index" card (which links to your portfolio) or should it go straight to the portfolio?

I suppose we could make hub/AirMapster go to the portfolio and make people/AirMapster go to your index card. I'm planning to do a bit more with those index card entries when I get a chance.
