Comments on Misleading stats in other user's ability page

Misleading stats in other user's ability page

−0

When looking at the Abilities dashboard of another user and clicking on any ability, for example the curate ability page of a mod looks like (I replaced the actual mod name with (ModName) for sake of generalizing question):

But the stats shown are of the mod, while my stats are totally different:

My suggestion

On the ability page of any other user, if the stats of that particular ability are shown for THAT user, then all occurrences of the word "You" should be replaced by (ModName), with appropriate grammar changes in the sentence.

Why this should be implemented

Keeping it like this only confuses the user (self-explanatory) and is misleading.

Alternative

While I don't prefer this alternative much, I'll still share it - replacing the stats with the user's stats and keeping the text the same.

Notes

This could be tagged with [feature-request] but I'm not sure, so it is tagged with [bug] for now since it doesn't look very intentional.
