Change Password on WordPress.org

After creating a new WordPress.org account today, and receiving an auto-generated password, I was reminded of just how difficult it is to change passwords on WordPress.org.

Googling for an answer made me realize just how many other people had this same issue. I saw some suggestions that stated to click a View your profile link. But the thing is that the layout of WordPress.org is not uniform, so this View your profile link doesn’t show everywhere.

After some more looking, and a bit of searching, I found that the View your profile link can be found specifically on the WordPress.org Forums.

Notice that the View your profile is at the top right of this page. Or you can click this link which should take you directly to your profile.
