The globalstats_profile_user method allows you to get all public information about a specific user ID.

If you are logged in and are viewing your own profile this method also returns some private data such as your exact home location and the number of moderated hits.

Input parameters:

user_idthe ID of the user
language(optional) EBT language code, defaults to "en" (English); please see the EBT website for a list of available languages
time_offset(optional) offset from UTC in winter time, defaults to 2 (i.e. UTC+2 / EET)

The language and time_offset parameters allow you to localize some user data, e.g. show the home country name in your language or the timestamp of the user's last activity adjusted to your timezone. By default the data is presented in English and with a Finnish timestamp. Please note that the server is honoring European daylight saving time, so the time offset doesn't have to be adjusted if you're from a country with similar summer time rules.
