One nice quality-of-life feature on Stack Exchange is the ability to direct users to their own network profile using /current. However, there are a few places where support for /current doesn't seem to have been implemented.

Does not support /current


1Tabs on user and network profile pages are also supported.
2Developer Story, Developer CV, and Job Match are only available on Stack Overflow.
3Searching user:current will have no effect on search results.

    Fyi https://stackexchange.com/filters/favorite-tags will already redirect you to your own filters. The user ID isn't needed. – animuson Jul 24 '17 at 16:41
  • @animuson Thank you for the clarification. I had assumed the user ID was necessary, since the final resolved URL includes the ID. – Stevoisiak Jul 24 '17 at 16:44
  • As well, your Data Explorer example is not something that can ever be supported. Data Explorer runs on open source software and does not have access to the account system for the rest of the network, and accounts there are not in any way attached to the rest of your network profile. Looking up the account ID there is simply not possible and never will be. – animuson Aug 3 '17 at 16:32
