Hi Denis,

It is still broken. My profile says I have an affiliation with my company, Design Science. However, when I go to this groups Join page (https://www.w3.org/community/mathonwebpages/join), it says "No affiliation known" right under my name and photo. If I click the "update my affiliation first" link, it takes me to my profile page where it shows my affiliation correctly.

Paul
