This was a feature from Snitz (if you installed the mod) that was really nice to have -- something that could possibly called once a day and cached even --

The problem is to gather all the data without perfomance downgrade. It's easily customisable but can't so easily be implemented as a universal feature..

I committed the code yesterday, it should be included as Host Option to turn it on/off and without a performance Downgrade.

The problem is that it's linked to YAF table profile provider and users can't use anything else.

For me it's completely useless as I have data stored as a delimited string for my custom providers.

I think that the solution compromises the .NET providers idea itself, but it will be useful for a lot of users who use standard YAF providers.

Yes thats correct, but from my point of view is currently the only solution to use the Feature without slowing down the forum. And of course the feature is disabled by Default.
