      Description

      Would be nice to have that permission and not give it to newly registrated, so the unapproved spamers can not put links and bad content into their profile fields.

          How does this affect legitimate human users?

          This affects all newly registered users, just like the need for post approval. When they get removed from the newly registered group, they can modify their profile to their hearts' content.

          Does that mean I cannot specify my site url during registration? Or I can only not change it until my first post is approved?

          I think in this case the benefits gained are not worth the aggravation this change causes to legitimate users. We should make it easier to delete spam users (currently it's a serious pain) and solve the problem of them putting spam urls in their profile that way.

          You cant specify it at registration anyway, unless a MOD is installed.

          If one does not wish this, he can either disable the Newly Registrated Group or change the permission... We implemented this on phpbb.de and there were quite some users asking for the code right away.

          +1 for implementing this permission, unsure about not granting it by default for newly registered users.

          The permission by itself would be useful for bridge-builders who wish to maintain their profile data on "the other side."
