#4502 closed enhancement (invalid)

Slack username seems no longer unique

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.

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)
