#2068 closed enhancement (fixed)

Forum profiles should have a link to the WP.org profile

Description

In #518, there's a long-term goal of merging forum profiles with WP.org profiles.

That was attempted during the upgrade to bbPress 2.x in #1544, but it turned out that's not feasible at the moment, because WP.org profiles lack the necessary functionality and i18n, see #1868.

In the meantime, forum profiles should have a link to the WP.org profile, like @sergeybiryukov on WordPress.org on the WP.org profile itself.

It would be great to add the @sergey on Slack part as well, but none of the open sourced files have a reference to where that data is stored.

The patch also adds missing translator comments for all the placeholders in the same block.

I guess I was wrong, found an example in WP_I18n_Teams::get_slack_username().

meta-2068.2.patch includes that part.

I read that now several times. Why not taking the initiative to enhance the profiles for the missing parts instead of inventing a second profile page?

I'd be happy to contribute to WP.org profiles when they are open sourced or when I see all the code involved, with the ability to run it on a local install or a sandbox.

What would be the first steps for such an initiative? At this point I'm just trying to do what I can with what I have :)

Refreshed after [4123]. It's not about inventing a second profile page, it's about linking two existing pages to make moderators' day-to-day work a bit easier.
