In my experience any profile that isn't at least -partially- in character/world always gets edited with something. Like, There are cookie cutter profile templates and then there are ones that are just ever so slightly edited to seem less like its completely separate from the game.
I definitely prefer when Profiles feel like they're part of the game world, but only when it fits with the game world. An example being I drafted one game that involved no IC record of who people were, so it got a cookie cutter profile sheet. But a different, far more ancient draft once involved the Bionicle G1 Shadowed One essentially compiling these profiles as a dossier on his enemies and potential allies, and so when profiles were approved they would also have been appended with occasional "GM" notes from the Shadowed One.
Stuff like that also makes it way easier to justify separate discussion and Sign Up topics. I remember when a single RPG could easily have over 100 characters by the time it ended. Good times.
