What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I think that it'd be nice to just have a link to people's global SE profile on their account page, especially with all the spiffy new changes. Currently, they're basically impossible to find without a direct link because you can't search for them and no one posts on SE.com so you can't click that link.

Just something simple like this would do nicely:

@Richardakacyberkiwi: I saw that, but this isn't just for your own, but to let you see other people's also. – Ullallulloo Apr 1 '11 at 4:44

We've added such a link (for user's who have associated accounts).

We're also making some improvements to that profile, so stay tuned for those. Already completed is a network-wide activity page.

Nicely nicely! Now with this easier access to the profile and since the profile is on the plate now, any thoughts on the topic of profile selection? – Grace Note Apr 4 '11 at 19:59
@Grace Note - first, let us finish making the profile worth visiting by default. Then we'll revisit customizing it. – Kevin Montrose Apr 4 '11 at 20:26
Sounds excellent to me. Thanks for the quick feedback. ♪ – Grace Note Apr 4 '11 at 20:26
