Description (last modified by shevek)

To avoid direct spam hits for new members the new members list will be hidden in the first week of membership. Afterwards the list will be shown.

if a spammer is looking for new members, he would go to search and sort by new members, he will get all the new members, not only the 4 that appear on the dashboard.

btw, i dont see the necessity of showing these 4 new members on the dashboard at all, not even after 1 week. I'd rather see this "feature" disappear from dashboard.

The first thing a newly signup spammer sees after confirming the profile is a list of 4 members on the personal start page.

It's not that spammers what to reach out to new signups but that that is the first thing they see.

Regarding removal: I agree but that's neither my nor your decision. Therefore I wait for an approved suggestion to remove it.

I still see the newest members on alpha.

You should see them as you're a member for longer than a week.

Only for new members the list is hidden.

I made a new test profile and I can't see any new members there. Obviously, I couldn't test if that is so for a while week since I just made the profile.
