Profiles in the forum have been disabled because phpBB can't handle the massive size of the user database. It would actually crash the site when they were accessible.

Exactly... You just have to type in the username (which you can get from the editor - just remember not to include the parentheses & number at the end, that's their editing rank)...

Is that the reason why I cannot access the memberlist within the PM system?

How do I obtain a link to my profile on Waze forums? Seems it should be simple, but I'm beyond confused as to how to grab it lol
