Have username.newgrounds.com redirect to userid.newgrounds.com?
That won't work. Suppose my user name is Pilot-Doofy, which of course it is. Normally, pilot-doofy.newgrounds.com would forward to 618472.newgrounds.com since that is my user ID.
Well, when I change my username (if I actually did) to DanLindsey and my URL changed to danlindsey.newgrounds.com then Pilot-Doofy or pilotdoofy.newgrounds.com would no longer exist in the database.
When it searches for the old URL (pilot-doofy.newgrounds.com) then it can't find a user with pilot-doofy as the user name. So no, that just runs us around in circles.
