A very good suggestion!
Thank you for pointing out that showing contributions this way doesn't match your experience as a user! We are planning an update to the user profile and hope to conduct user research (perhaps including some here on History Hub) to get direct feedback just like this about what you would like to see on an enhanced profile page. I hope you (and others!) will help us know any additional changes that would make the profile more interesting, fun, and user-friendly!
Thanks for sharing!
