in reply to Dealing with spam users

I reckon that disabling the Bio for initiates would not hurt anybody interested in a real participation here. It would provide just another incentive to be active.

    I think disabling linking should be enough.

    But discouraging new participants to write an introduction wouldn't go down to well.

    We already have restrictions in place like limiting user images until a certain level is reached.

      maybe make external links and/or text that appears to be an external URL on the homenode a Level 5: Beadle privilege, like the homenode image.
        I tried to look into the code, but wasn't able to identify any instance that controls the content of the "bio" textarea.

        update

        see user edit page (content only visible to pmdevs)
