As suggested in this comment, there should be a way users can start the process without the need to copy their user profile link every time, which can be achieved using the authentication functionality provided by the Stack Exchange API.

In order that we don't need to request write access or something like that from the users, we don't specify the scope parameter, as the following is stated in the authentication docs:

With an empty scope, authentication will only allow an application to identify a user via the /me method.

The /me method gives us all the information we need (the user id).
