Profile Not Found Message (on same or different nodes) - new topic

The person I tried connecting to on nerdica accepted my connection request this morning. I was able to see that person's profile. BUT, when I clicked on the notifications box so that I would get notifications of all his posts, a message appeared in the upper right hand corner saying the profile does not exist. The profile was right there on my screen! And I looked at the notifications box again and my check mark had vanished! I tried checking it off again, so that I could get all the notifications - the same thing happened again!
1. The remote user, JP Sousa Paula, is also on friendica, but on the nerdica node:
I see his profile, but am unable to click on the Notifications box with the check mark to get his notifications. It also happened with Phillip Landemeir, whom I connected with this morning - the same thing. I clicked on the box, but it says Account not Found or Profile Not Found.

2. Allen Middleton deleted his 2nd account. I am connected to the
Mutual Friendship
I do not see his profile, only the "Profile Not Found. This resource may be available in the future" message.
That is what happens when I click on the icon for the account, which is the one that still exists. The deleted 2nd account is completely gone.
If you are looking at app logs, the date all this happened was Dec. 28, 2018. I tried to make the connection with both of Allen Middleton's profiles, and got a message on the duplicate one (now deleted by him)" You have already introduced yourself here." This message appeared for a few seconds in the upper right hand corner.
I also got the confirmation e-mail on Dec. 28 that the connection was successful with the active profile:
"[Friendica:Notify] Connection accepted (

But I am not able to click on the contact icon & see the profile and he wrote that he sees a pink screen when he clicks on my contact icon.
When I click on the Contact Icon, it says "Page Not Found. This resource may be available in the future."
All my contacts look like the same format as the URL for Shelenn's when I click on her icon on my profile. Her URL is in this format - all look similar except Rinus Bakker's, because he is on, so his is different:
OK, I would suggest un-connecting and then connecting again. It sounds like something went wrong while getting that initial contact going.

I'm waiting for Allen's response to my connection request, so hopefully we'd both see valid connections to him.

Do let me know!
Ok, but what about the problem of there being a 5 day wait after deleting a contact? And how would I disconnect?
There isn't a wait for removing a contact. There's a wait when you try and delete your own account, but not to remove a contact from your list.

In your contact list you should have options when you mouse over a contact to send a private message, poke, and further to the right, remove the contact.
I've seen that before with someone on another node that is now no longer active.
You mean Richard Curren. Yes, I remember when it was happening.
Ok, I will do that.
I thought that was a little different though. Allen Middleton & I are both on the node - the same node.
Ok, it is done. I went to my Contacts list on the upper right hand menu, clicked "Drop Contact," and a message appeared "Contact has been removed."
Thank you, Adam! I sent him a re-connection request & will let you know!
Maybe you could find an unused desktop computer at work ? It sounds like you might have clicked on the wrong button when trying to approve Adam's friend request also. Your old request to me showed up as an "Ignored request," meaning it was interpreted as ignoring it. I just now sent a new connection request.
@Adam Clark
And if I click on the Contact button in his icon on my profile, it happens again - the same thing.
@Adam Clark
Maybe since my request was interpreted as an "Ignored Request" the first time, that was what messed it up? Should Allen & I disconnect again and re-connect again?
@Allen Middleton
I am watching this issue with interest. I am not sure if I understand the redir format you mention so I went to my contacts page then clicked local directory and clicked someone I don't know and am not connected to. This is what I got:

Yes, but I think there was the Ignored Request in between both times. An ignored request the 1st time because he accidentally created 2 profiles & I tried to connect with both. An ignored request this time also because of hitting the wrong button.
In the Directory, I clicked on Alma Evelyn Scott's icon. She is not a contact. Here is the URL that came up:
I clicked on Shelenn's profile in the Directory - she is a contact. Here is the URL that comes up:
Icarus (a contact):

So, the ones who are contacts are in that format, but the ones who are not contacts, are in a different format.
An interesting thing just happened for me. I searched local directory for taras5 which found her profile just fine. For her I see /redir/31581 on mouseover. I searched local directory for bonespur and found nothing. Yet looking at the local directory I see him as /redir/48820. I know he has some other oddities as well but haven't really done any further testing as I know you all are troubleshooting.

When mousing over, and looking at the address where you pointed in the lower left hand corner of the screenshot, I see the same format on ALL:
Oddball Mario
Jeff Sykes
Alma Evelyn Scott

@Adam Clark
My Ignored Request is still listed on the Contacts Button. I have a red 1 and there is an Ignored Request.
It is on the Introductions button on the Contacts Tab.
My answer is below - his link is the same as the others in format when mousing over:

Maybe I should have deleted the Ignored Request before attempting to re-connect with him?
Sometimes I have to go to the notifications via the menus to the right of my profile pic (upper right of screen on browser) then delete notifications there.
@Adam Clark well that might explain why my event calendar is all white. This was something someone else reported with the latest rc... can we get that fixed?
The same thing happens. If I click on his name in the Directory, or if I click on his icon on my profile, I get the message: "Page not found
The requested resource could not be found but may be available in the future." @Allen Middleton @Adam Clark
I will try removing and adding - I will let him know. I will tell you what happens.
great job! what was the fix?
Adam, we have disconnected & reconnected, and guess what! I can now see his profile when I click on his Directory icon, and also when I click on his icon in my profile! So, it worked this time! Thank you for all your help!
