Unfortunately not, .... the feedback that we have from Admin is that the technical department cannot find a means of achieving this.

no problem...

Somehow I don't believe that, due to three things.

One is the Fact that other VBulletin based Forums, does have such Spaces as Mandatory.

The other is the Fact that during Years I asked many Admins to let me Complete my User name here, all told me that the Space only allowed certain number of Characters, and I can not exceed it; however, one of the Admins, very Kindly answered my Question, and did the
"impossible" change for Me.

The third thing is that I know how Tricky the VBulletin and IPBoard softwares could be, and with so many things to do, People lose Patience to learn New controls... so I understand the Situation.

No problem. After all, it was only a Kind Suggestion...

Best Regards.

I must admit that I too was quite surprised that this could not be achieved by the IT / Tech specialists.

In my own humble opinion, this Forum is really in dire need of having such spaces as mandatory, previous to register... I am seeing newbies almost daily, asking questions regarding incomplete subjects, without providing information of their Car / model \ year, and location...

Kind Regards.

Maybe we could prompt Admin to take another look at this.

I was surprised when informed that IT / Tech could not do this, ...... experience has taught me that IT types can do just about anything you could dream of.

The format that this site is built on does not presently support adding mandated fields at registration. This is currently one of a host of functions being looked at for the version 2 of the software however this is still in early development at this time as we are still rolling out version one. What we have done in the past is provide an automated notice informing users to fill in that field. Only new users will see it.

This is an Example:

~►
Ultimate Subaru Club

That forum started with Vbulletin, and switched to I.P.Board.

The fields of Location / vehicles \ Real Name and others, has been Mandatory on Both Plattforms.

Kind Regards.

Hello,

I made the vehicle profile option a mandatory option but I left the location as is because some people might not want to disclose where they're located.

Does that help?
