You can try to flag a post by that user for moderator attention. At present (and likely far into the future) there is no way to flag a user profile. But be aware that users have quite free reign on their user profiles. Sure, pornographic material, racist epithets, and other truly offensive material (e.g., there was a recent spate of avatars with Nazi ...

Jihad is also a (given) name; see the disambiguation page of Wikipedia for example to find several people having this name and a Wikipedia page. Or, search a bibliographic database, like MathSciNet or Zentralblatt MATH. I just did so for the latter "Jihad" in the author field yields 10 publishing mathematicians that have that name. It is at least ...

I haven't found anything threatening in the history of either of the users with this name. Therefore I will not do anything at this time. I obviously did not check all their posts, so I may have missed something. Christian, if you have been the target of a verbal threat from either of these users, please @-ping me (you can do this "semiprivately" from one ...

Jihad by definition doesn't mean to kill westerners. I am uneasy about the names but I don't let it concern me and neither should you. Since it can't be proven one way or the other of their intention, forcefully changing the name is wrong. This action can cause people to dispise westerns when they had no problem before. Don't let fear of what you don't ...

Although I personally would like something to happen, even if that's what you've already done: Warning users not to get sucked in by photos (nor user names "ManlyMan" ...

A brief answer is that you should go to your profile and click on the number of consecutive days. (Remember that you'll find this in the profile tab, not in the activity tab.) You can find more details here: Statistics of visits on M.SE Implementation date for the consecutive days calendar How can I see which days I visited site? The tag-info for the ...

Go to your profile page on the main site (not on meta or it won't work), then click on Edit Profile & Settings in the navbar.

This will be fixed in the next builds. You were experiencing a bug that affects Gravatar/Identicon users who have capital letters in their email address. Because we request icons of various sizes, we build Gravatar requests on demand using various data including email addresses. The algorithm we're supposed to use is MD5(ToLower(email) + salt) but our ...

When you click your own profile, the default tab is the activity tab. You should go to the "Profile" tab, where you can see the "visited $x$ days, $y$ consecutive" text. Click this text to show the calendar.

I think there needs to be guidance that's not buried in the comments. Flag one of the user's posts, even if the post itself is not offensive like the user's profile bio. From the options that come up, choose "In need of moderator intervention". A text box will come up in which you can write something like This post is okay, but please look at the user's ...
