Description

As Slack has moved away from usernames, if multiple users have the same name it can be difficult determining which user is linked to which WordPress.org profile. For example searching the user "John" shows multiple accounts with the same details.

On WordPress.org profiles, it would be handy if the Slack username could be linked to the user's DMs. The URL form is https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/C024MFP4Q/team/<user id>.

This came up recently when I needed to DM a number of people in a certain channel and had trouble figuring out who was who in a couple of cases.

The one risk I see is that it may increase Slack spam.

I doubt it will, and if it does, slack spam is not appreciated.. accounts do (and have) been deactivated for this.
