#4502 closed enhancement (invalid)

Slack username seems no longer unique

Description

Starting from a profile like https://profiles.wordpress.org/imatoni/ it indicates that the user is '@Phil on Slack'. But on Slack there are currently 4 different @Phil.

Starting a DM with each of them will indicate 'This is the very beginning of your direct message history with @Phil'

I suppose this is due to Slack now using 'member IDs' like UCGDDDSBA or U5C0WNDJM.

Proposals:
1) add the member ID next to the slack alias.
2) add the direct DM link (https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/UCGDDDSBA/ or https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/U5C0WNDJM)

Slack eliminated unique usernames a couple years ago.
