Do you think registered users could set their own defaults for these things on the profile page?

At the moment I have to change all three fields before I post a comment on a cue. Out of pure laziness, it'd be nice if the fields populated for me. :)

The homepage should be possible to clear. E-mail is the same as the user registered with, so that I know it works (worked at some point), so don't really want to make that editable. Could store if it should be set by default or not, but I can only set it to cookies as I don't have access to the DB schema. The alternate username problem seems to be a bug, worked with my alternate username. Maybe it's the ampersand causing problems.

BTW, why are you BampersandB in the forums? Problems with the ampersand mark, Mark?

Aha. I've just played around with this. If I log in as "B&B" the nickname field defaults to "B&B". All this time I've been logging in as "Beats&Beyond" and changing the nickname field to "B&B" manually. Doh. Should have investigated that sooner. :oops:

I've just noticed there's a default homepage setting on the profile page. Is that new? Or did I miss it? I'm pretty sure it wasn't there before I started this thread! :? It appears to do exactly what I want it to, because I always use my last.fm page as the homepage.

So now I just have to clear the e-mail field before I post, cos I don't like spreading it around. ::Dons tin foil hat::

Three steps down to one! Sweet.


And yes, I did have problems with my ampersand mark Mike! My fault for having such a crap username.
