    I was getting bombed by lots of ridiculous sounding new members a couple of months ago. It stopped dead as soon as I removed the existing Question and Answer Challenge entries and put some new ones in. Make them something specific to your site theme - something that your potential members are likely to know.

    Thanks to Rimi for the mod, but in addition to CallieJo's ideas - Guests/Everyone - Members Only - Just Friends.

    Deja Vu! The same advocates and the same opponent!

    For what it's worth I still think that profile permissions would be a good idea. I don't see how the above forums topics scenareo might apply.

    Shall we meet up again in 14 months? :)

    This is how I did it - Admin/Look & Feel -> Bad Word Filter -> Add New Filter.

    A good way to fix this is to put the first part of the more recent style share link into the swear filter - to be replaced by the old one. It works well. :)

    How easy would it be to do this at the most simple level though? Member has profile set to public or members only. A tinyint in an ocean of blobs. :)

    Suggestion - Profile Permissions
    At the simplest level, it would be a nice feature if community members could have the ability (if admins allowed) to have their profiles viewable by guests or not. It started with a few members complaining that the world could see their profile pictures or other stuff that they'd put on, then a few more chipped in to say that they'd customize theirs a bit more if only members had access. As a result of that we ended up turning off profile view for guests - where other members didn't mind, or actually wanted their profiles visible to everyone.

    I suppose that making it a bit more complex like 'only allow friends' or choosing which bits to show would be a bigger ask, but stuff like that might be a bit more 'community orientated'.

    I'm really glad to hear that. It's something that's crossed my mind a few times.
