Currently, when editing my profile, I have two options:
- Save it for just the current site, or
- Save it for all sites.
However, this doesn't really fit my use case: I like to keep the same profile on every site except I have a couple of sites with site-specific profiles.
This makes it very difficult for me to update my "default" profile that I use on the majority of sites:
- First I have to go to the one or two sites I have a custom profile on, and copy the profile text to a text editor or whatever (and save the avatars if I'm changing my avatar).
- Next I edit my profile and save it for all sites.
- Then I have to go back to each of the custom sites and paste the profile text back in (and change/upload the avatars if needed).
It's super unwieldy.
To that end I propose a checkbox in the profile tab of each site that reads something like "Lock this profile", that is unchecked by default. When it is checked, "save profile for all communities" will not apply to that site (unless, of course, the "save for all" button is pressed from that site, in which case it should be applied, of course, to that site in addition to all other non-locked sites).
I think this would be really helpful. This is for the same type of control that Allow "Save And Copy Profile To All Stack Exchange Accounts" to exclude selected sites asks for but, specifically, I'd like it to be implemented as a checkbox on each site rather than some dropdown selection list of sites to copy profiles to, I think it's easier to manage that way, since you can just check the box and forget about it.
