It would certainly be nice if all of those kind of fields had a toggle for compulsory or not, to allow admins to select what they would like as required fields.

I always thought that required fields are silly, considering that users would not be required to put in a meaningful answer.

True but I think depending on the subject of the board they can be useful. But then maybe the better solution is to have none at all so you can then just create the ones you need with custom profile fields.

This is still all about the same.. phpBB needs to rework all profile fields to Custom profile fields and rework CPF management.

And if this is done, it is one click to make it mandatory.

I think it's not necessary... if someone wants to do it, it can be done easily in ACP :P

Well this is a feature already present and you can find it using custom fields feature. Why add it newly?
I really think it will be redundant.
