Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In order to get the autobiographer badge, quite a few SO users put the URL of the SO profile as their URL. Is this ok, or should this be disallowed?

Tons of people do this, I don't see a problem with it. They can put whatever they want in their profile. If they don't want to put a personal site in their profile, so be it. Autobiographer is one of the trivial badges, no need to put big stipulations on it.

They could put a space, save, and then delete it again immediately after getting the badge. Autobiographer is on the bottom of the list of badges we should worry about people getting unfairly

Come to think of it, I don't have that badge; I'm going to put a link to this post in my profile to get it :)
