Today, the new user profile was instituted. It seems good, although the revised layout will take a little while to get used to.
However, I noticed that for new users, there are some strange comments in unpopulated fields. For example:
I suppose these flippant comments are meant as a joke, but to be honest, I was confused by them at first (especially the first one, which appears where users would write their own profile information).
Overall, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to have content in the profile that the user hasn't chosen for themselves, and which more than likely does not accurately reflect their intentions in becoming a member of the site. My preference would be to remove the first text and show nothing in that position, and change the second text to "(No posts yet.)" or something similar to that.
