    Hello, the attachments in messages is a nice feature.

    However, there is a big thing missing in messaging system. A link back to the poster's profile, if they are a Provider.

    I am new to oDesk, just fulfilled my first job after attending the oDesk 101 - Building Your Team webinar (which was good BTW).

    I am getting tons of provider messages for the job and when I engage in back/forth communications with a provider, am constantly wanting to see who they are and RE-review their profile. Right now I have to text search my Job Opening page for the provider's name to see them.

    Please email me directly if you wish more feedback, would gladly mention a couple of other small things.
