About Me / Your Profile on EF

I've noticed lately that the majority of new joining EFers either don't fill-out, or suppress the basics of their "About Me" profiles.

While I'd recommend this approach 100% to children or young adults - it makes trying to give any good advice on relocation or adaptation to Swiss life a full-time, teeth-pulling experience.

Typically:

a) I want a new job and it has to be in Swiss because that interests me and would be the best environment for me or help me because of my dissatisfaction over my current (un)employment and / or over-qualifications here in my own country, having already a PhD (unspecified). The childcare support system seems to be sub-optimal (crazily expensive) by the way

or...

b) Please let me know where I should should live in Swiss, what I should do according to my (non-specified) qualifications, what I should earn, the cost of living (sometimes the family number is specified), and how much I get if I don't find a job.

etc, etc, etc.

Demotivates from wanting to help - at least the basics should be mandatory info.
