Group-name is adding strange code

when creating a new Group, sometimes there is a strange numbering automatically being added to the Group-URL.

Like I have created a Group with Group-name "".
Then the URL for that Group and also for the Blog is looking like this:

Not sure why the number 689611498 is added to the URL, as the Group-name is unique on my website and no other Group with the same name or similar name is already exising.

I do not like this number being added to the Group-URL and also to the Group-Blog.

Strange thing is that this is not always happening. Just experienced this on that certain group I created.

running BP 1.2.3 and latest WPMU.

It's not a bug, it's how BP handles duplicate/repeating slugs.

All of your slugs are getting a random number appended?

sushkov is correct.

If you already have an existing group with the same name, a random number will be appended to the slug to differentiate it from the original.

If all your group slugs have a random number suffixed, please reopen this ticket.
