Add more customization to a user's hooktheory / theorytab profile

seems kinda bland as it is, no? the only information we can see about a user is the date they’ve joined and their contributions, which doesn’t give much insight about a person. i know it’s a lot to ask, but i think adding the ability to customize this page would be pretty cool. maybe adding things like showing the user’s gravatar, allowing a description / status message to be set, etc. and maybe if someone is on the hot/top contributors list, they’d get a little badge under their name / avatar? that might be fun, encouraging users to contribute often and such. overall i think it’d be good for the community as a whole, since you’d be able to see a whole lot more about a contributor besides the date they joined (sorta trivial information to include on such a limited-information page) and their contributions.

also footnote: unless i’m misinformed, it is unnecessarily complicated to get to your own profile.


no option in this menu takes you to, and for some reason the username part is greyed out / unclickable, which seems like it’d make a good fit for accessing your own profile. the only way you can access your own profile through the site without typing the URL into the browser is by going to a page you’ve contributed a tab to and clicking your name. seems as if this has been an oversight for a while (Be able to go directly to profile when clicking your avatar).


Found this old post through the search function, but yes definitely.

Even a basic description field would be a great improvment. Having to use gravatar for avatars is also annoying, not looking to register for an additional service yet again.
