      Description

      The user's description can no longer be updated. This seems to be a regression caused by MDL-48978. A check was added for the existence of a 'description_format' on the profile form, but no such field exists. Therefore the test for the existence of the description field will never succeed and the description field will never be updated.

      This only seems to apply to 'ordinary' users. Admins can still edit that field
