If this, it could work as well.
Just slows the site down, might as well go to the profile then.
Also, not the biggest fan of splitting system info and help seeking posts.
A couple of years later on for example the issue cannot be fully inspected anymore as the new build config has taken over said required info about the troubles.
So for archival purposes this is bad.
It's also bad from a Google point of view.
When I hunt the internet for information, like lately I checked to see how to get a friend's graphics running in Ubuntu 10.04, the split up actually makes the post less relevant although it contains all the information for SOLVING the problem, just not all the information that I l used to find the solution.
Bad idea to split it up, so if anything, keep it a minimalistic thing on the profile page.
Maybe add an option to automatically implement the info (current as of writing) provided in the profile with a self-made BBCode kind of string.
This would have several advantages:
a) The info is easily appendable to your profile
b) all help posts remain searchable
c) system info would always be formatted the same in such posts, which I think many of us can agree would be a nice bonus over the specs being spread in full sentences all over
d) awesome factor!
