[Site Behavior] Redirect snapzu.com/u/<username> to snapzu.com/<username>

We use /u/<username> to mention other users, but https://snapzu.com/u/<username> doesn't actually go anywhere. It seems like it should.

    Was /u/<username> a Snapzu thing? Or did people just use that because that's how Reddit did it? Maybe Snappers could refer to other users with a simple /<username> (for me, /Boop).

      It's a Snapzu thing too. If you type /u/Boop (for example) in a comment it automatically makes it into a link to http://snapzu.com/boop, but http://snapzu.com/u/boop goes to a 404.

      Well it also allows it to be easier to specify that you are referring to a user. A '/' may need to be used elsewhere, most notable in URL's but may be included in various other comments. It makes the parsing considerably easier to refer to uses with a '/u/' prefix.
