Question I've been meaning to ask: is there a particular reason our website links in our profiles only appear as plain text?

Great question/concern. Just rolled out a solution for the short-term there. Will add a little better validation when a user adds/edits that field, so we're linking only to the best of websites and not bad websites. smile

Re: BFFC Upgrades: New Profiles

Profiles are now at /member/ and not /profile/, e.g. https://www.bobafettfanclub.com/member/2/

Old URLs redirect. Part of a subtle move towards consistency, e.g. member #, member this, member that.

Also moving around some things on the page there to highlight cool stuff (e.g. member # for how long) and clean up other stuff, whether you're an active/busy user or a lower-key/browse user.
