User profiles

Everyone in Sansar has a user profile, a one page overview of their Sansar identity that includes their avatar name and ID, a brief autobiography, a link to their Sansar Store, and links to any experiences they have listed in the Atlas. You can also use someone's profile to add them as a friend, send them a message, or report them for inappropriate behavior or content.
