Short, concise description of the idea
Links to other profiles in 'full mode' should lead to said other profiles being displayed in 'full mode'.

Full description of the idea
If I view my own profile in full, showing clients/communities/etc., I'd like to follow links to other profiles displaying the same information without having to append '&mode=full' to the URL.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Less hassle for inquisitive users.
  • No extra strain on DB? (One of the memories posts claimed that when accessing profiles, 'It retrieves all of the data regardless of whether it will be displayed.')

  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Possible large-scale implementation problems. Friend lists would [?] have to be called separately for each version (basic/full profile). If there's no shortcut to doing this (append &mode=full to URLs of friends) it would simply be an unnecessary bother.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I know nothing about coding, but it appears the profile pages would have to be modified significantly, maybe both basic & full modes, depending on whether separate friend lists would be needed.
