^ Yeah, after posting I thought about it and came to the same conclusion.

Fair enough

I tried modding the 3 files as shown in the excerpts (page #1) but get a MySql error when trying to register a new user, so I returned to using the original files. I then downloaded the .gz file with the original modded files (because the posted excerpts might have an error in them somewhere) but don't know how to extract the files from that. Can someone advise me, please?
Many forums would benefit from having the Location field made a Required Field and included in the registration form page, especially local forums like mine where location determines what actions are possible for members. Also helps to weed out the nuisance registrations. I have to resort to emailing new members to ask them to update their Profile, deleting them if they don't.
