Hello,
When we get some advices from riders on their wind range for a kite, we often need to know (at least) their weight ; so either we miss the information or the poster has to repeat is many times in every topics . What about showing a dedicated field in the profile on the right to show this information accessible from each message directly ?

Should save some time, and have replies more concise and efficient IMO

Good idea, I like it.

But, tired of revealing every bit of my personal info on the Net ;) Can be absolutely used by crawlers so if you happy with machines learning about us, go for it.

No.

Obviously not. I know what crawlers are for, right? ;)

lol.... a mate developed a web crawler bot (I have no clue really), but it tracked every social media interaction/input down to the minutest detail, then created an algorythm for EACH user - which was then sold to defence/insurance/basically anyone who paid - now he's in semi-retirement in California :thumb:

This field could assist people who are tired to repeat their weight :-)
minimal personal info here IMO, and obviously not mandatory ; personally I do not care that big brother knows my weight and I prefer that kind people on this forum people know what I am talking about with my wind range experience ; so I will not hide it 8)

Changed it, did "Submit", but doesn't show up. Why?

OK, I had to have something in "Facebook" which I don't use, so put in "None". wtf?
