    Two years ago this related topic [1] was marked as resolved since the WordPress team explained they were working on it. But after two years we the situation through two profile URLs is becoming very confusing for many users.

    Could anyone explain or trying to clarify this?

    Thanks,

    Alberto.

    Since then the profiles page has been updated to include badges for various things like if the user is a plugin author, community speaker, moderator, etc. So it looks like the decision was made to keep it.

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm not talking about the things included in the profile... just why the maintain 2 versions, is very difficult to promote or share a profile if you don't know if this is your main profile or not, of if they are planning to move it and when.

    Thanks. Regards,

    Alberto.

    I was trying to say that it looks like they have decided not to move/ remove the profiles page because they've developed it.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your quick support, but I guess this doesn't give us any additional information. Two years without any news about that... and something that IMHO "appears" easy to solve.

    Also, what I mean is if this is the right place to ask this question... I don't know.

    Thanks again.

    Alberto.

    At least 1 person who helps run the WordPress.org site goes on this forum so you have posted in the right place.

    Dear Andrew,

    I hope that some of the people behind that read it. If you know any of those who may have more information please let them know.

    I think I'm not the only person interested in solving it. At least not the only one confused.

    Thanks,

    Alberto.

  8. Answer: Yes, both :)

    Eventually it'll be profiles.wordpress.org/username for everyone. We're still working on it.
