    If anything should come out I think it should be the blog one.

    I'd like to see the join date visible.

    I've seen people at DP posting 1k per month. THe number of posts doesn't tell you how old a member is.

    It was a difficult decision for me to say the least. I was a member of another forum and posted 450 times in the first month. Apparently that was unheard of and I became known as an obnoxious member. I proved myself not so by only posting when I felt the need to interject my input and not every time I had a small comment, but my recent join date made it difficult to decide.

    However, switching roles in my situation, I realize that join date is an extremely good indicator of the knowledge and dedication of members as irrelevant to their post count, no matter how high it may be.

    I would say get rid of the Last Online as that's not really important. Maybe hide location and that should help form room for Join date as I feel Join date is important in some way.

    Last online is used often by people in the market place.
