Adding usernumbers to profile page suggestion May 14, 2001 6:53 PM   Subscribe

Minor suggestion: how about adding the member number to the profile page, or informing members about how to find it?

I know it seems minor, but I never knew where to find that info. And with the member numbers starting to come up in the discussions, I started to wonder: "Where do I fall into this ranking? Am I more of a newbie or an old-school vet?"

It took me several minutes of poking around MetaTalk (lurking for the answer before I post the question, y'know) before I figured out how it's done.

(Note to new folks: mouseover the link to your profile page, and it will appear in the link shown in the status bar.)

And, by the way, I'm #481 -- which I think qualifies me to say I was into MetaFilter back when it was cool. :)

I'm 204, does that make me cool?

Yes, corpse, I guess it does.

Feel free to be the first to say "MetaFilter is so over!"

I'm number 781.
Under a thousand is considered cool. If you're modest about it you're secret a-list elite.

Ofcourse number of posts and comments really determines how cool you are. I'm pretty high up there. Cause I'm cool. Yep, I love myself.

... and three days ago snowmelter was asking to futz, munge, or otherwise obscure the member numbers ...
