Unfortunately, we could do this but I don't believe we will. We want the COW profiles to stay at Creative COW and not be redirected to another website. You can put links on your profile to direct them to other websites but the COW profile is about you at Creative COW specifically and can be used to show more about yourself but primarily it has to do with Creative COW.
I believe that what Stephen is asking is if the profile URL could have our names in them as linkedin does. For example, my linkedin public profile has the url:http://www.linkedin.com/in/kathlynlindeboom
whereas my cow profile url is rather generic, although, I like being number 1: http://forums.creativecow.net/profile/1
I don't think that Stephen is asking us to send people away, just the ability to personalize the profile URL a bit more.
I think with linkedin, it's first come, first served. Ron told me I needed to request my public profile link before someone else did. Although, we need to limit what people ask for. For example, Stephen couldn't ask for abrahamchaffin.
