User profile info available to other (registered) users?

I would find it helpful if usernames on the www.code4lib.org website were hyperlinked to a profile for that user. I'm thinking in terms of the content available in the "view" and "contact" tabs of the user account. Naturally, the "edit" and probably the "track" tabs should either be disabled or better yet, not show up at all. This access might be restricted to other registered users... or not. I realize... that this brings up privacy issues, so availability of a person's user profile information should probably be an account option. And perhaps it is possible to look up other user info now, and I just haven't figured out how.

Want to ask some q

Thanks doran that makes perfect sense. The user profile viewing was off unintentionally, and is now on for other registered users.
