Your translation is wrong, don't add the username to the title: bug invalid.
If you want to request such special pages to have the target in page title, that would be a different thing.

The message descript says that $1 was the user name.

The message is used twice:

  • in one instance $1=user-name works
  • in the other, it does not.

This inconsistent behavior and/or the message descriptin need to be fixed.

Either we need to have two independent messages, or they mus behave identically.

Purodha: Do you plan to work on a patch to fix this?
(As you said yourself as assignee here.)
