The URLs to people, projects, and tools in the Forge are quite unfriendly.
A URL like this one does not convey any information on its contents, besides being difficult to write.
Instead, it would be much more understandable (and memorable) this way.

The same goes for people: This URL does not suggest who the use is
this one would be more friendly

How to repeat:
see above

Suggested fix:
For each Forge object (person,project,tool), allow the user to specify a customized URL.
The Forge should also suggest a URL made up from the title of the project/tool or from the user name.
