#2951: Support Forums: Add forums profile link to the admin bar

 The forums currently have a "My Account" link at the bottom of the
 sidebar, but its placement is not very logical, as people generally expect
 the profile link to be in the upper part of the screen, see a

 discussion in #forums].

 Additionally, there's no place for "My Account" section on the forums
 landing page or on other users' profiles.

 The admin bar seems to be a logical choice for the profile link, however
 there was a concern raised in comment:13:ticket:2167 about an
 inconsistency between admin bars across WordPress.org.

 I still think adding a profile link there would be a good enhancements,
 along with other profile views: "Topics Started", "Replies Created", etc.
 Something similar is implemented on bbPress.org, see the screenshot.
