My profile has a link to the flair page on it, so others can use them. However, it is a link to the flair page for me, because the /current trick (which replaces "current" with the logged-in user's ID) doesn't work.

Can we have https://%.stackexchange.com/users/current/x/flair redirect to the logged-in user's version of the page? This would be really nice; I could put it on my profile so people could have flairs, an obscure feature that I didn't understand for quite a while.

  • Why not, with a default dummy flair as the expected output for logged-out users, if doable. – Jenayah Jul 29 '19 at 17:41
  • We'd probably have to change the path to /users/flair/{id} (which is consistent with the actual image path that just appends ".png" to that) in order to get a "current" redirect there. Throwing it into the middle of a URL like that is just weird and doesn't match any other profile URLs we have. – animuson Jul 29 '19 at 17:48
  • related as that there are more inconsistencies that might need fixing in one go instead of a bit here and a bit there: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/298748/… – rene Jul 29 '19 at 18:02
