No. Required profile questions are still required when you sign up via mobile. We did allow someone who wasn't capable of uploading a required profile photo to join without the photo if their device didn't support that, but we changed this recently when Apple added this ability to iOS 6.
Phil can you also add the ability to add custom code to the mobile site?
I want to add custom validation.
This is actually true, which I've explained in my discussion a few weeks back. They are somehow able to alter the parameters of the sign up questions and inserting the number "1". See screen shots below.
Hope I'm not misunderstanding, but they do have to answer the profile question, right? In some way. They can't just leave it blank or ignore a profile question that is required.
I can see that getting spam in this way would be very annoying, but it sort of sounds like these are two different issues. Unless I'm misunderstanding.
Not two different issues. They are signing up via mobile. You, Eric were the first to explain to me that the reason why these spammers are using my old default network icon, and why they were able to bypass the profile pic is because they were signing up via mobile.
As to the questions, they are supposed to choose one of the items on the list, but are somehow able to insert a "1" in the field instead. It's not just me, that's what others were saying in my discussion weeks back as well.
Thanks for clarifying. I believe we have a bug report that our team is working on that is related to this, Patrick. So, stay tuned.
Thank you, Eric.
That's not specifically related to mobile; we're investigating though!
It is specifically related to mobile, Phil.
We'll have to agree to have different opinions on this then ;-)
That we can do Phil. But if I have a case of the stupids today (and it happens), I wouldn't take it personal if you could point out my error (call me a glutton for punishment if you will).
Josh is is referring to sign up questions via mobile, as am I since the trespassers attempting to penetrate my network are using the mobile site to do so, and circumventing my profile questions.
Unless Josh is referring to a mobile application instead? Not trying to be difficult, just trying to ascertain how much these drugs are messing with my head.
Is there a way to turn off mobile till this is rectified? I am tired of these spammers. It is out of control.
