Religion in Profile

I suggest that a mandatory feature should be in place within everyone's profile and it is RELIGION, thus letting us know where our Folk's faith lies within Skadi.

This will also help prevent trolls from sneaking around or weed them out.

Incomplete profiles raise suspicion anyway, an empty religion or politics or ethnicity/ancestry field turns on my troll alarm, much more than an empty location field for example. And sometimes things that are not there say much more than those that are

Oh noes! Velvet will think I'm a troll now!

Actually, I'm not particularly religious in any direction... it's more a matter of the philosophy of what role it plays in society to me. That's why I didn't bother to list one.

Skadi Award: Being the most prestigious award on Skadi Forum, the Skadi Award is bestowed upon those who, being outstanding contributors of particular importance, have been long standing supporters of Skadi Forum and its community, in good and in bad times. - Issue reason: Excellent contributions in all sections; outstanding performance as a forum manager; indefatigable support of members, staff, and the administration. 
The field is optional. Some people aren't particularly concerned with religion or don't identify with one type of religion in particular.

Also, some may be more private and introverted and not wish to list all their details in their profiles.

Yes, you troll



You have your "religion" as custom user title ("Anachronism") , so that's fine. And the rest of your profile is filled out too. But people who have nothing filled out except gender (which is mandatory) have a troll 'smell' about them imho

And now imagine religion would be mandatory, I bet this would rise Skadi's share of Jedi Knights and Spaghetti Monster worshippers to unprecedented levels
