Considereing multiple posts come up inviting new individuals to update their profile, would it not be convenient to have add mandatory fields when first creating a profile like location and country?

nic1 -

This question comes up frequently, so it's a reasonable question. When things were put together I made the decision to require a minimum amount of information from people to guard their privacy. There are some here who feel it in their best interest to offer little information about themselves, and I have no problems with that.

So although I agree that the more information one shares about themselves, I do feel compelled to not require those who seek anonymity to reveal information they would rather not share.

Cheers -
