I don't know if this has been brought up before if so forgive me.

Being relatively new here I've noticed that many of the users simply don't bother to fill out their system information in their profile.

Next thing you know they are seeking help and some of the posts are akin to saying "my puter is broke, help me" which really doesn't give a person much to work with.

Some of the places I frequent will actually often ignore posts that lack system details.

What I'm wondering is if there isn't some way to encourage this to be done when a member registers?

I realize it would be next to impossible to regulate what info gets entered but even if that area were simply treated as a required data field it would at least confirm that they saw it and more would fill it out properly.



Just something I thought might help efficiency if it's possible to implement.


Thanks.................... LoneWolf

Hi,

Thanks for the idea/request. We are currently working on something like this, but it is a very long-term project. Unfortunately, I have no ETA.
