Favorites now displayed on profile page.

Your user page now tells you how many of your contributions were saved as favorites by others, and there's a page showing you the favorites. Yes, I'm aware that the stuff saved as a favorite by multiple people gets repeated. I'll fix that this week. For the moment, it at least gives you an insight into what others liked that you wrote. Here's my user page showing 148 things I wrote were saved as favorites, and here they are.

How do I customize my profile info?

I'm sorry if this has been covered or is painfully obvious, but in searching MeTa and generally scouring my profile page, I can't find where to click to change my information. The one MeTa thread I did find on the subject (here) says there's a "customize" link. It seems this has been replaced with "Preferences," since the url ends in "customize.cfm," but when I click there, I get nothing but the set of Features, Links, and Sites links. Help?

List of your top ten answered tags from AskMe?

Tags: User profiles show "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter posts" -- which is neat!, but would it maybe be really neat if there were a "Top ten tags used on Ask MetaFilter answers"? I know that what I've asked about and what I've answered to are in pretty different realms.

Profile page answer counts shouldn't include follow-ups.

I think that in the profile pages, the answer count for Ask MetaFilter should exclude the user's own comments in their own questions.

"Member Since" in profile

My Little Pony: show the date that a user last stopped by on their userpage, right underneath the "Member Since" line. This should be visible only to logged-in Mefites.

Choose map/lat-long or zipcode

Is there any way to make it possible to choose between the map/lat-long feature and the zipcode list or list without a map? [mi]

Nearby Users outside the US?

Has anyone ever come up with a method or numbering scheme that would allow the "Users Near This User" option to work for non-US members? If not, could something be developed? (For example, are there unused Zip code numbers that could be designated to major world cities, regions or countries and which would then allow me to see other Canadians who live in my city or at least province?)

Add projects activity to profile

Can we get a listing (in a members profile) of the number of projects a member has posted on Projects.Meta? Something similar to "oddman has posted 1 link and 208 comments to MetaFilter."

Clicking on the number of comments in my profile brings up this (and I doubt I'm the only one):

My profile seems to think my zipcode doesn't exist.

For some reason in my profile, where it is supposed to say "xx MetaFilter users near this user:" I get "no zip found in the db". I found that strange, as I live in a suburb of DC, but shrugged it off as everyone else living in the cooler parts of town. However, when I got bored and looked into it, I'm 26.87 miles from darksquirrel. Yet darksquirrel is 29.78 miles from jenny18 and they show up in each other's zipcode list. Is this a bug, or have I uncovered the fact that my neighborhood has been blackballed by MeFi?

What does a contact do?

More FNG questions: On my Profile page, I see contacts listed. Or rather that people have listed me as a contact. It looks like an addressbook sort of thing. What does this mean? What does a contact do? How are these used? Is there a contact etiquette? I searched the wiki but couldn't find anything (maybe because I couldn't guess the magic keyword.)

Should banned users' profiles reflect the reason for their status?

If a user is banned for blatantly violating the no-self-link rule, would it be a good idea to either a) note the banning on that person's user page or b) delete the user page entirely? Seems strange to keep a user page from someone who took a dump on the community.

Comment count does not match actual comments

Userpages closed to indexing?

Revisiting this.

Metafilter is the biggest site that I can edit a page (my user page) on. I'd like to have "I am the [my name] that went to so and so school, and so and so high-school and did so-and-so" so that if someone googled my name looking for me, they could find that. However, userpages are marked NOINDEX for robots, for to stop villians from using google to harvest stuff, I assume. Given that it would be trivial to write a script to go through all the user pages and snarf anything, and given that these are The Internets, is there a reasonable expectation that an email address or other information you put on a publicly viewable page will *not* be harvested? Doesn't everyone have a spam-catcher address for this purpose?

Can international users be added to the 'users near you' feature?

How about adding some mechanism whereby we Canadian users (and/or further abroad, but I don't know how complex that could get) could join the "Users near this user" crowd? Obviously we would have to provide postal codes, but the mechanism must exist, since it is used on several other site.

As far as integrating it with the US one, well, I don't know if that would be possible, let alone plausible, but it'd be a nifty addition.

Counts in profile not right?

My user page is borked. I've answered way more than zero things in ask.me. I've posted more than zero responses in the blue. I'm pretty sure I can't post in the blue, either, though this may not be a problem anymore - I just haven't had anything blueworthy recently. My account is pretty old, and it was stagnant for a while. Does that explain things?

Can someone explain 'contacts' for me?

When I look at my own profile, I see this about "contacts":

Contacts: This user doesn't link to any other MetaFilter members. No other MetaFilter members link to this user.

When I look at someone else's profile, I see a button to add that person as a contact.

Have I missed something in MeFi guidelines about contacts? Why would I want to add someone as a contact or have him add me? Is there some benefit to doing that (like an IM channel)?

how to lookup user pages by user name

I used to be able to lookup user pages by user name, with the URL "http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/mathowie" but now, when I put that in, it resolves to "http://www.metafilter.com/user/1" I know this has been mentioned before, but I can't find the discussion; is there any way to lookup a user's page if you only know their user name (and not their user number), and you can't find a comment they made (in order to just click on their name)?

Profile URLs now going to names not numbers?

I keep a bookmark that ends in the spelled-out version of my username so that I can go to it and type out other users' names at the end if I don't know their user number. Tonight, going to it to find some other user's page, it took me to the page with the URL ending in my user number rather than the word "interrobang".

In the past couple of days, I've also "moused" over other people's names to see who they were--mainly in ask metafilter--and gotten the URL ending in the name spelled out rather than the number. Is this because the standard is soon going to be user pages with URLs ending in names, rather than numbers?

Isn't this profile question getting a bit dated?

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it. [more inside]

List of MeFite blogs

I've looked in the FAQ, the Wiki, riffola's user page, and nowhere can I find a comprehensive list of MeFiers' blogs. Does such a thing exist? If not, should such a thing exist? I think a portal showing recent entries from MeFiers' blogs could be nearly as entertaining as MeFi itself.

Listing links on user profile pages

To avoid cluttering up the front page, is it OK for those of us who come across a lot of interesting links to use our user pages to list some of those we'd like to share but probably won't merit much discussion? I'm worried about using up bandwidth and the old accusation of using MetaFilter as one's personal blog.

If it's OK, what's the acceptable limit? Would five or six links be acceptable? Or should the opportunity be used (as some, like Zachsmind, have done) to list some of our favourite MetaFilter threads, for example? Please advise.

How about requiring everyone who posts to have a valid e-mail accessable to other members, but only through a form mail, to hide the address for those who don't want it really public, and to protect addresses from farmers?

announcement: non-logged in users can no longer see contact info.

I made a slight change to the user pages. Logged in users see everything as it was before, but non-logged in users don't see any contact information except for websites URLs. I had long worried about the spam thwarting measures I have employed not being good enough, and I've also been hearing about non-members hassling members for memberships, posting, etc. So with the new change, non-members won't be able to harvest addresses, or send you an email (unless you've got it listed on your homepage URL somewhere), and they won't know your AIM/ICQ or location.
