This question has been addressed elsewhere. See: Ability pages 404 when logged out unless they're for a specific user ("?for=" in the URL)

This question was closed; new answers can no longer be added. Users with the reopen privilege may vote to reopen this question if it has been improved or closed incorrectly.

The user profile page right-hand column has an Earned Abilities block, which has an Abilities link at the bottom.

When logged in, that link takes the user to their own abilities summary at /abilities, regardless of which profile was being viewed. That's perhaps somewhat unexpected (I would expect following a link from someone's profile to give further information relating to the user whose profile I was viewing), but at least it's not broken.

When logged out, however, clicking the same link leads to a Not Found error.

Should the link perhaps instead point at the generic abilities summary at /help/abilities, or a ?for=<id> be added to match the adjacent specific-ability links?
