Disallowing websites in profiles

For discussions related to the main web site or the forum itself are now combined into one to clean things up a bit..

Because when they sign up they appear in 2 places, firstly in the members list and also as the "latest member" on the front of the forums, so although I agree their exposure is limited, even if 1% of "us" view their crap, they feel some sense of achievement :?

I'd never noticed that 'newest registered member' bit before! How do these things manage to get set up automatically?

Let there be respect for the earth,
Peace for its people,
Love in our lives,
Delight in the good,
Forgiveness for past wrongs,
And from now on a new start.

Quite simple actually. It's just a script that goes through the motions of an average person registering for a website.

Not saying for sure, but maybe they have their computer set up so that there is a dialog box with the code-pic on it. Then they put in the info.
