Description

Users need a way to find all their posts & threads they created in a quick easy manner. Including total post count per item. The My Contributions filter isn't cutting it.

I propose we add the following links customized to the person's username:

This would make it so much easier for regular users & moderators to be able to track posts quickly & easily without wasting so much time with manually inputting this into Advanced search.

Another helpful addition would be to auto-link the total post number count under each user's name & avatar to the My Contributions page.

There are two possible solutions listed for the problem statement in the description. Of those, this one needs ux-help:

And this one is pretty well defined and should be pretty straight-forward:

My vote is we do the second well-defined one and push the first one off unless that's also needed.

I agree. Both of these solutions are easy so we could do both if Bram can provide a quick mockup/wireframe/handdrawing on how where to place the links on the profile page and how to style them.

I would like Bram's feedback on both ideas before implementing.

Given that, this may fall out of the sprint.

View profile - contributions area

Note the new area that appears above the contact box and just below the user name.

This area has three links that lead to three different views:
* # of answers
* # of solutions (if we can do a search for that)
* # of questions

Ideal behavior:
* When any field value is 0, the field will not appear. A user who does nothing else but ask one question, will get a field that say “1 question”.
* When the values for answer, solution and question are all 0, the whole section disappear along with the heading. This is similar to how the view profile page looks today.

I like! Eventually we should show latest X activities but this is a great start.
