    With what's been said i'd say it sounds like a good idea to have both profile pages...

    What i'd like to see (and would allow the use of both pages) is all user related info (minus threads) under the BuddyPress profile pages, and all thread tracking under the old profile pages.

    Then draw your attention to simply removing the unwanted (user info) from the bbPress profiles (you could give the page a related heading - eg. Forum activity for "Username") and focus on improving / re-writing the threads query that looks up posts relating to the given user.

    [bbpress profile]
    [threads]

    [buddypress profile]
    [plugins]
    [themes]
    [user info, website, name, etc...]

    Essentially split the roles and let the bbPress side of things do all the thread tracking. Admittedly bbPress is the area where the thread tracking is lacking.. and requires the work..

    Doing all this under one page is just going to increase the amount of queries overall for the site. If you split the queries/roles between 2 diferent pages you've already cut down total queries and frenquency of queries per page view... Thread tracking would(in my mind) be the bulk of the biggest queries on the page anyway..

    I think it would be nice to have both profile pages work in unison with one another, rather then choosing one over the other and having piles of information in one place...

    So, the plan has been put into action, and the your profile link from the forums goes to your old forum profile again. In the background we'll be addressing some of the basic functional issues on the new profiles (like the double login, BuddyPress links that weren't applicable, etc) and working on the last few features that weren't finished.

    This experimental launch really did bring home the need for better functions around forum thread management in bbPress/the support forum, so we'll need to work on that as well. If there are any bbPress wizards reading this who'd like to volunteer to help with the thread management issue via a bbPress core patch, let us know!

    if either the profile content or plugin data is non-ASCII, it double-encodes it:

    I have to echo the others' sentiments regarding thread/reply tracking in the old profiles, member data (date joined), etc. I also think that the profile image should be smaller. Right now my 150x150 Gravatar image is being stretched to 190x190, which distorts it. Perhaps drop it back to 125x125?

    A glitch that I've noticed in my new profile is that the download count for my plugin is off. The number in my new profile is 30 downloads higher than the stats on my plugin page show.

    Plugin Download Stats

    Not sure if this is happening to other plugin/theme authors as well.

  5. Just wanted to drop in and say great work to everyone for adding BuddyPress to this setup. Good job!

    Are the local forums going to be added to profile as well?

    just a poke and reminder for the future:

    But, it's annoying to forum mods to have to bookmark their old profile to access it for thread tracking, and annoying forum mods is definitely *not* the WordPress way.

    Its annoying for people that arent mods also, and we count .. in fact, we outnumber them. :P

    A better solution would be to upload a higher quality version of your gravatar. It goes up to 512x512 natively, and the scaling happens on the gravatar servers, in high quality. So with a high-res gravatar, you get excellent results at all sizes.

    Any plans to include Codex contributions to the profile pages?

  10. They'd have to use something like this: http://dev.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2009/07/06/new-mediawiki-extension-buddypressactivity/

    I've yet to try that sort of thing :)

    I have four themes and four plugins showing on my profile. The download count has been steadily decreasing on one of them (Desk Mess Mirrored) on the profile while the theme page stats shows increases in downloads.

    Profile: http://profiles.wordpress.org/cais/

    Theme Stats: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/desk-mess-mirrored/stats/

    Not exactly sure when it started "separating" just adding the observation.

    Not to dredge up an old topic ... but is any work being done on the profile display. The information provided under the "My Themes" and "My Plugins" are both becoming increasingly incorrect.

    In my particular case: three out of four plugin download counts are incorrect; and I would suspect that all themes should be displayed, which is not in my case (1 is missing) and the download counts of the four showing now have two incorrect, previously it was just one.

    PS: If anyone knows which specific file controls the display of the user name I'd be happy to look for a fix to the possessive apostrophe "s" issue on names ending with an "s" ...

  13. The plugin list on My Plugins does not list all the plugins you work on.

    It appears to only list the ones which you were the original account requester for.

    e.g. http://profiles.wordpress.org/westi/ is missing one of my plugins (WP Contact Form) http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/westi

    I suddenly seem to have a profile picture. And I don't seem to be able to change it.

    If I go to gravatar, it tells me that my username is already in use.

    Is there any way to opt for a "blank" or a zero avatar?

  15. Your picture is a gravatar generated off your email address.

    Register on Gravatar with a different username, as your email is what defines it, and then you can make whatever you want.

  16. I suddenly seem to have a profile picture. And I don't seem to be able to change it.

    That's the new default gravatar for the forums. The new default "Monster" gravatars use an algorithm based on your email address to construct a unique "monster" for everyone. It's really quite fascinating.

    As mentioned above, sign up at gravatar.com to upload your own gravatar. The gravatar is linked to your email address, so make sure that one of the emails linked to your new gravatar account is the email that you use here.

    Yes, I have double checked that. I logged in to gravatar with the same email address as I use for roadie here. This image is what I see when I click on "Check this gravatar". It is not the same as the one I see on this forum.

    The username that gravatar associates with this email address is not roadie. I can not log in to gravatar using the username roadie.

  18. Your username on Gravatar doesn't matter, I promise you.

    Those images you see, did you upload them? If not, that's why.

    The right hand image was one I chose (from the internet rather than from my own computer). That is the one I expected to see. Ah, maybe it was the x rating?

  20. Well ... yes :) The rating here is probably G or PG.
