Same account, two different browsers - my Theme preference isn't respected in both browsers. I like this "feature," so I'm just mentioning it - not requesting a change. [more inside]

Are MeFi profiles crawled by search engines? I remember reading that they weren't, but I just googled my real name and found my MeFi profile.

Should we update the 'About' prompt on the profile page? It still asks when the first time you used the internet was. At this point it's kind of like asking when the first time you watched TV was.

I find that Mutant's
profile is full of useful information, about himself and his areas of expertise. Do you guys know of any other profiles with useful and interesting information, particularly about specialty subjects?

When an account is disabled, all the profile information disappears. Might it be better to preserve the information when the account is disabled due to the owner's death? [more inside]

Can we add muxtape as a social service for the profiles? I bet a lot of mefites muxtapes up.

In your preferences, if you select a month and year for your birthday, but not a specific day of the month, you get an error message. Could that be changed so you have the option to fill in only the month/year?

We have a "joined" date in user profiles. Can we have a "left" date for the pushers of the big red button?

In a large and steadily-growing community, and possibly because I'm getting old and stuff, I find myself having trouble sometimes remembering who said what, especially when it's a newer user. So, a possibly small and easy-to-implement feature request. [more inside]

Minor usability quibble: When you're looking at who favorites a post, and click a username, it shows their favorites instead of showing their profile page, like every other linked username on the site does. Maybe a different link to show their favorites from that page?

Last.fm pony please: I'd like to embed the "Recently Listened" (or similar) chart into my profile, much like the flickr photo scroll.
(Alternately, if someone knows how to do that now, I'd appreciate it). [more inside]

We have a fandom post feature now, which of course is excellent. Now how about a random user
feature? It could be called 'Get to Know A MeFite' or something like that. I think there are a lot of interesting user profile pages which many people have not and may not ever see, which is a shame, and this would be a potential way to highlight some of them. As an added bonus, this feature could lead to more Metafilter meet-ups as people stumble upon other users who they may not have known lived so close by. It could also lead people to explore their randomly chosen MeFite's posting history which may, in turn, lead many to discover several excellent (and awful) posts, questions and MeTa screeds which they may never have come across before.

I had this idea when encountering the problem of wanting to contact a metafilter member of their public facing email address not being filled in...
How about doing what PayPal, banks and universities do - they present a user on login with a page which they click 'confirm' on to get to the usual start page. On the confirm page would be form fields with the information metafilter currently has for them:
I think often the reason this isn't filled in isn't out of choice it's because the user in question simply hasn't got around to it, doesn't know he/she has a profile or hasn't changed it since they first enrolled.
What say you? I don't think doing this would cheese people off and I think it would really be a boon for the site.

I imagine that some of my fellow mefites, collectors of the Best of the Web, would have great del.icio.us accounts for me to pick through. I'm not getting enough use out of their networking feature, either. Link your profiles! Here's me.

I once found (and bookmarked) this page
of all of chococat's music. I like it because it has the little flash player, so I can listen to all of his tunes. How do I get to the same kind of page for other MeFi Musicians? I've tried looking on members' profile pages, but the link to all of their songs goes to the music parts of their Activity pages. Thanks.

Please to put an email in your profile? Most of us don't bite, really. Okay, sure - if your "persona" here is attack-nerd or something, and you're sure you'll get spammed with hate mail, leave it out, but if you're a regular user who likes to participate, can't you at least set up a throwaway webmail address (in gmail, for one, you can create a filter to forward your messages to your regular mail, and you won't even have to log in to your account to check if you have any new messages). more...

I don't know if the 'Activity' link on the profile page is still a work in progress. But, if so, how about adding a little bit of context to the Favorited tab?
It's not very useful with just a couple of lines from the post and a date.

Minor feature add: you can set your flickr username in your account, and it will automatically grab your last six photos uploaded and add them to your userpage.

I added a new feature: Custom CSS for profile pages. You simply create a .css file on your own server, write whatever CSS you want, and it will load after all the mefi CSS when anyone views your user page. Here's mine
(which loads this
). Just plop in the URL of your custom CSS file on your server in your user prefs.
Be sure to post here when you've got something cool to show. Let the ugliness/coolness begin!
