Most of my "nearby users" have "no edits", or last edits long ago.

I would like to see only users with some recent activity, e.g. at least 1 edit in the last week / month.

How can I change the way this part of the profile-page is displayed ?
If there is no such option yet, where should a feature-request go ?

You might find Pascal Neis' "Who's around me" site useful - you can filter by the number of edits that nearby mappers have made.

(I think we have a very similar question here already, but I cannot find it now.)

As far as I know you cannot customize. bug reports / feature requests should go to our trac system (you can login with your account), but be aware that your suggestion could be just closed/denied. Lists: All open website bugs, all user_location bugs … and here is the one you are asking for: suppress inactive users "near you".

Instead use the other, better tools mentioned at wiki page about this feature.

See also this recent discusion on the talk mailinglist. We know the functionality isn't great currently; we just haven't designed/implemented a good replacement yet.

I hope this tool helps you..
Only those who have given their location in the OSM profile can see it. You can see that mappers in your area are categorized based on the number of their changeset You can also visit their profile.
