 [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4132 it] out. i have heard
 that some people have some objections/concerns/reservations. but havent
 heard specifically what concerns. i would like to thrash this out and try
 to address concerns. and hopefully reach a consensus on whether or not
 this ticket makes sense

 fields that are required on sign-up.

 ok. just based on the wireframes, there are a couple of clarifications:
 - There is always a skip link. so should reduce friction. many popular
 social networks follow this model
 - Remember, this is not registration. I'm all for minimizing registration.
 This ticket goes hand in hand with #5583
 - If a component (e.g. group or friends) is not active then it shouldnt
 appear as one of the tabs/steps.

 Like jjj I would love for admin to be able to cherry pick fields. Not only
 here but also on profile summary/cards #4126 But let's not make great the
 enemy of the good. If we start without the ability to cherry pick fields
 and add that ability later, it wouldn't be such a disaster.

 Ditto for interfacing with member types. It's a bit premature to design
 FOR something that doesn't exist yet.
