    This seems to have become a thing here this week especially. Basically it is new members posting here like they would in chat. The problem is that it drives everything down and it registers as no regular posts. I dont think it gives many points either. Had to tell one guy to post in the forum itself instead and he just did one LOL and left.

    Please avoid doing this or I will just have to start clubbing whenever I see this.Use the forum or at least get 15 posts and use chat instead of Profile Posts. Dont mind the odd message from time to time here, but it does not need to be stuffed by one or two forum members in a day.

    I use them mostly for announcements:). For others its fine to use occasionally unless its something like outside links.

    Had a random quote today from somebody who hasn't even posted yet so looked into it more. Since this ability, like most features here, is based on user groups, profile posts can be removed from new members who do not post yet. Thus, this should be fixed now:).

    If a member wants to make a profile post, they will have to be a New Ogre or better first. Yes, we should have done this a long time ago lol.
