The whole reason I make the change from the text box(which really wasn't better being that all you had to do was put something in the box) to the drop down selections, was to get users to add their information, and to simplify it. Takes the guess work out of what we want you to have in there. Now........... of course there are people who just don't give a damn, and those are the people who you have to ask, and ask again to edit their information, but for the most part people who WANT to share, do. I have given up on helping people that don't give information pertinent to their car or problem.
Now..... what I would like to see is during the registration process where you have the email confirmation message and it says "click here" to go back to what you are doing, instead have it direct them to the UserCP where it's required of them to add those information fields at registration and profile updates. I understand the 'get them in quicker' thought process, but from the member side(which is the most important part of any forum) it's really frustrating trying to help people when they don't give all the information possible to help them. Just like Sheila said..... help us help you. If we can get them to do it right off the bat, it will be there. The more senior members require a little more push because we can't make it mandatory without creating havoc.
