Ideally, aye (or at the very least a redirect/alias from the old ones)

But I'd also like to see a much clearer association between members and 
their content. And by content, I mean *everything* they do - evolters 
content, artlcles, tips, directory entries, everything.

I want to see it all in the same place - a 'My folder'. If you like, 
weo, peo and teo are just different views on that content, and 
specifies what you see/can add in each place as well as the template 
you see it in.

So you go to
http://play.evolt.org/members/martinb aka 
and you get the appropriate content types (articles, blog entries, 
review requests respectively).

But you go to
and you see it all.

So an evolters.org membership just means that you can add content types 
exclusive to membership.

Could maybe have the frontdoor as a user preference?
a) weo
b) peo
c) teo
d) portal

After all, we're only talking about one page?
