Suggestion: Remove "Website" Section of User Profile

Postby Shakura » September 14th, 2022, 8:47:15 am

Simply said, it is outdated.

ICQ number: - who uses ICQ nowadays?
AOL Instant Messenger: - does this even exist anymore?
WL/MSN Messenger: msn is dead :I
Yahoo Messenger: uhhh...
Jabber address: ...
Website: attracts bots, bots and bots

All this Information can be easily put if your profile Info page, there is no need for an extra section.

Removing all these Options might also reduce the amount of bots registering new accounts to write malicious website links into these fields.

If you still want people to fill in some contact info (but why though? It's not like, a business site) I'd suggest some other more up-to-date websites:
Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Youtube, Discord, LinkedIn

Although I doubt this will reduce bots making new accounts. They probably have a framework for PHPBB Forums.

I also agree with this suggestion. No one uses ICQ anymore :)
My zodiac sign is Scorpio. The Scorpio compatibility chart shows that the best match for me is Pisces. So, I'm looking for a Pisces woman :)

Agreed. Most of those sites were shut down years ago. That section needs removing or updating, though I'm sure Rosehill has other things keeping her busy *cough* clouderrors *cough*, but maybe she'll consider it if/when she sees this.

There are so many users with skwtchy website links. It actually makes me a little sad that there isnt anything preventing this after allll these years.
