    I see a lot of newbies asking questions on their profile posts that really ought to be posts or new threads in the forums. Is there anything we can do about them?

    Most of them are freelanderers as well.

    Make @goonarmy an admin so he can prune and snip as required.

    Profile posts are pointless, and an extra way for spammers to use the forum.
    Do away with em altogether would be the best plan.

    Definitely relevant! They are the most likely to have no idea about what they are doing! After all they are only playing at it! ;)

    You can't really get rid of them, so why not lose the profile posts instead. :)

    I'm also in the 'I've never used them club'. I've only been a member for 4 years though, so time yet o_O
