Youtube link broken

Recommended Posts

Just a minor issue. On the main page of the forum, next to the Facebook and Twitter icons, the link to Youtube is broken. It should point to http://www.youtube.com/user/Neowin, but it's missing /user/ in the URL.

Umm that's not broken. Did you even click on it? You don't need /user/ anymore, you haven't for years.

Yeah, it's not broken and it doesn't redirect. It is correct as it is. :0

I do actually get a 404 when I try click on it:

We're sorry, the page that you requested cannot be found.

Last I checked, you don't need the /user/ to view a channel.

Have those of you who claim it works as-is bothered clicking the link? As others have said, it doesn't work, but if you add the /user in the URL it works just fine. Why do people feel the need to argue something that takes two seconds to verify?

I'm pretty sure the link doesn't work.

Yeah, that seems to be the problem. Trailing slashes really mess with some sites and browsers. FWIW, I just tried IE9, Chrome, and Firefox, and none of them will work with the link as-is, they all require removing the trailing slash.
