Got a notification :). Seriously, we/I appreciate the feedback.
Please first know that the community platform (this site) is completely open source and independent from the main search engine (duckduckgo.com). While we do have dedicated staff that support it, it is understaffed and we are actively looking for help (both volunteer and paid).
The best way to report community platform issues at https://github.com/duckduckgo/community-...
. The ideas forum you referenced is strictly for instant answer ideas, which is probably why it was flagged as not an instant answer idea there.
That said, this particular issue is probably my fault. I didn't want people ultimately confusing user pages with regular pages and so internally argued for moving them to /user/. Not all changes have been made as a repercussion of this action. Additionally, it has been some time between releases. The latter we're working on. That is, we're trying to move to more weekly releases of the community platform and be more transparent about what is being worked on.
