I can, somewhat, understand the reasoning to have account related things (pwd, language etc) separated from project related information. But three pages?

I find it very confusing and can never remember which one it is I'm after and usually end up clicking them all. Maybe because I seldom use them, but then again, this might be why...

The pages "My page" (configurable page blocks) and "<user name>" (activity) could easily be merged into one (e.g. having "activity" as a page block), with likely the "My account" page being a sub-page of that, merged page (or vice versa).

Agreed. It is somewhat confusing for new users to have three pages that all mean the same or similar things.


Rename current "My page" to "My startpage"
Rename current "<user name>" to "My account"
Rename current "My account" to "settings" and organize as a subpage of "<user name>"/(new)"My account"
