I asked about this in the discord chat but thought it might be easier to start a thread here (also to remind @dpdanpittman!)
As a follow up to the thread @kristoffer started - I don’t want to derail that thread if it will indeed be used for profiles! Curated list of contributors and how to set up contributor profile
Could we consider using discourse user profiles themselves as the source of a “contributor profile”? It seems that we might be able to define custom user fields to structure the profile as needed: How to create and configure Custom User Fields - faq - Discourse Meta
So dedicated fields for the user’s wallet and past/planned contributions? Perhaps the existing “about me” area could be reused a bit, too?
Obviously this isn’t quite as rigorous as a keybase profile (or starname??) but seems adequate for a contributor profile use case?
Also, it would be neat if there were a dedicated “Contributors” category (similar to the Validators category) so contributors could create a thread dedicated to their bio/planned work.
