I have a confirmation web page that gives a feedback message depending on the users previous action. I would like to have a query string that contains the username and another that determines which feedback message to leave. So is it normal practice to have multiple query strings when needed and just use != null when a particular query string may not be there? thanks [Edited by - jen6677 on November 15, 2004 8:50:19 PM]

It depends on the nature of the site. For security reasons, I wouldn't want to pass a username as a querystring variable (you're setting yourself up for spoofing) and would much sooner store the username in a session variable. Bear in mind that a query string is limited in length so may not be entirely suitable for all the information you wish to convey.
