When I click on the site, and on a user avatar, it takes me to a different user profile. It appears to be doing this for all of the sites and profiles, but isn't random (i.e. it's the same "wrong" profile every time).

It looks like it's taking the user's site id (for example, for a random user I picked, DavidPostill on SuperUser, that'd be 337631) and then plugging that in as the SE Network ID (in David's case, that'll take you to https://stackexchange.com/users/337631, which is the profile of user666010).

So it's just grabbing the incorrect ID on the account sticking the ID into the wrong link.

    Strictly speaking... it's actually just linking to the wrong site in the first place. :) The links were supposed to go to the Q&A sites, not stackexchange.com.
