Might it be possible to have a link from a forum user's name directly to their site profile, that people can use without logging in?

Sometime I see the name of a poster and I wonder if they have any new reviews up, or sometimes just want to check their site profile to possibly get an idea of what kinda metal they're into.

If I want to see reviews now, I need to either dig up my old credentials (not worth it), or go to the main site and type the users name into the search box.

Since the site profile information isn't hidden, what do ya'll think about a quick link from forum to site profile?

Do you mean an ability to view forum profiles without logging in? All users already have a link to their site profile on their forum account (although nothing the other way round), you click the hyperlinked text "Anon's profile" next to the contact information. Obviously, if you're not logged in, you won't be able to see the link as forum profiles are only visible to registered and logged in users. I don't think such an addition would do any harm, however, given the amount of pain required to log in, I wouldn't say this is likely to be the most demanded feature.

"All users already have a link to their site profile on their forum account" As anon, I can't get to the forum account.

And it's not huge at all. But I don't save cookies or form data, and anyways I think I get a new computer more often than I actually post anything here. So, I'd like it a lot, and it may be easy?

Fair enough. I don't even know if it's possible, this forum is powered by phpBB.

If you click the forum profile username, you should see "Site profile" on the page somewhere, which will take you to their site profile.

Edit: it appears you want this without being logged on into the forum? Not really possible, sorry.

such hard work, that. I often need a rest whenever circumstances force me into that course of action... I feel your pain, bro.
