    With the addition of the New Profile Posts tab ...
    upload_2014-8-6_8-15-47.png
    More users will will see Profile posts.
    And Read them.
    And post their own.

    Some sites will like this.
    Some will not.

    You can see the effect happening here at Xenforo.com already.

    As an admin, you might want to remove the [New Profile Posts] tab before it gets popular.

    Anyone know how to remove the [New Profile Posts] tab ? And replace it with a [New Resources] tab ?

    ==================================

    Update:
    To Remove the [New Profile Posts] Tab.

    Solution 1:
    Code:
    a[href="find-new/profile-posts"]{display:none!important;}
    Just add that to your extra.css so that after you've disabled all permissions the tabs related to finding new profile posts go away. Most browsers support this excluding IE 6, but who gives a damn about that. [source]

    Solution 2:
    Add this to extra.css
    Code:
    .find_new_posts_none .tabs li:last-child , .find_new_posts .tabs li:last-child {display:none;}

    We don't want profile posts at all, it would be nice if we could fully disable this feature.

    Well, the sidebar feature can be disabled in the admin.

    Profile comment permissions have been set to None. That only leaves the tabs on the "new posts" page.

    In general, Profile posts are of low quality. It could be fun for members. But it will definitely be a spam target. Seems like an ideal method for attention whores.
    It's an easy way to "Get attention".

    And the problem with increased use of profile posts and comments is...?

    Many forums prefer the interaction to be on the forums.

    I'm fairly sure a remove-on will be available very soon.

    If you don't want profile posts at all, you can remove them in permissions (like you've done with things like comments).

    It gets worse.

    I can post URLS to the Forum Home.

    Ideal for attention whores.

    Profile posts are often off topic irrelevance.
    Xenforo.com should consider removing the New Profile Posts sidebar ... I'm not sure the off topic blathering deserves such a high profile location.

    Seems like it'll create lots of work for Moderators.

    I don't see what the problem is. You don't like it, disable the block, set permissions to disallow profile posts and comments. All sorted bar a tab which can be edited out in the template unless the devs add an option to do this.

    Undecided here, will have to play the wait and see game.

    On a positive note:

    I love the

    But surely the better use of this would be for:
    (1) Multiquoting "with response".
    (2) Quick Replying.

    It could be ideal for many sites that thrive on chit chat.
    Not all sites are chit chat.

    Conversely, not all sites are sterile, soulless places which have less functionality than an 80's BB.
