Just noticed I would have used it.
Trouble is, to do that we would have to store the user ID in the post body text, as we do with the post ID.
Not really a big job though, would be quite useful too.
Why is this so useful when it only requires just 1 single extra click now? Instead of clicking the name in the quote, we can now click the up-arrow in the quote, we are transported to the post that is quoted and there we just have to click on the Avatar to access the Membercard.
When you think about in practice I never have the need to click on the name in the quote-border, so for me (I understand it's different for everybody) there is no added value for it to be a link. However, what is indeed of value is the fact that we can press the up-arrow, because often I am interested in the post that has been quoted, especially when only a small portion of the source postings is quoted. And as I said... there we have the opportunity anyway to click on the Avatar to access the Membercard.
Because the arrow can take you to another page in the thread (which is not that usual here), because avatars > names, and because names mostly work like that anyway. It somehow felt intuitive here.
Why not just make an action which accepts a username and redirects to the appropriate profile? Then you could link to the profile efficiently using just the username.
Though I suppose it would take a fair bit more work to get it working as a member card link rather than just a plain profile link.
I myself wouldn't mind having it like this.
Separate names with a comma.
