Hey there,

I know some extensions that gather extra user information have their own tables and such in the DB, however this seems like a HUGE waste and duplication of information.

Does anyone know of a methodology or practice available as "Joomla best practice" so we can reduce duplication, have one place for storing information about users, so it is not duplicated across a heap of components/extensions.

Having the one location to store this type of information is not only the way it should be done anyway, it also helps to maintain data integrity AND reduce maintenance/errors.

If anyone can provide some advice on this it would be greatly appreciated (or is this s anew project for Joomla CMS core??).

Thanks, Max
