I searched through the forums, but couldnt find any solution to have short urls for members like http://www. mysite . com / nameofmember
is there any way to do this?

It's been talked about before, but the biggest limitation is that most forums allow spaces (or special characters) in peoples names. For example "Michael P" would not form a valid URL as described above and depending on if there are others with the same name, but when you take out the spaces and non-URL characters may end up with the same URL string.
I've been looking into possible code alternatives while some people have used htaccess rewrites to accomplish this.
