I have developed a new plugin to customize the user profile. The working version looks like this:
On the left you have nicely the user avatar plus the total points right below, the BEST-Answer-Star to the left, the received Upvotes to its right. Below the avatar box you find number of answers, questions, comments. Below that follows the about-me-text and location (not set in the screenshot).
The plugin also provides the last 5 answers with text preview on the right. Plus a "all answers" button. Then follows a list of all users who favorited this user.
I have changed the favoriting to "say thank you to user xyz" (see yellow button). It is like a friend approach:

Left to do:
1. I need to setup the plugin for English.
2. Admin options.
It was quite a big work load, so I plan to release this plugin as premium for a price of 12 USD on http://www.q2apro.com/plugins/
