Yes, they entered the locations after Xprofile Fields was installed. I only launched the site after installing the plugin and the add-on.
Hi Eyal, any update?
I asked the Sweet Date team and they told me to ask here.
With version 1.4, the Activity stream stopped being continuously updated with my location. I’ll have to see if this happens again with any other user, but for now this is working. I’ll let you know if this happens again. Thanks.
1. I hid the Location tab so it’s always the Xprofile Fields add-on.
2. Version 1.3.1
I’m not sure how it happens because it doesn’t happen to every user, but there are enough users that this happened to that it’s definitely not a spam problem. Basically someone would register (using Xprofile Fields in the registration form) or update their location through their profile, then the update appears multiple times on the Activity stream, sometimes taking up pages of space.
Yesterday, the Activity stream started to be flooded with my admin account’s location update, even though I didn’t update my account location. There are multiple updates per minute even if I don’t touch anything (screenshot attached). Immediately before this, I was fixing another problem by going to Tools > Buddypress > Repair total members count/Repair member “last activity” data. That could be what triggered it, but I can’t be sure.
After some experimentation, I deactivated all my plugins and it seems Xprofile Fields is the problem. With only Buddypress, GMW and Xprofile Fields add-on activated, the location updates constantly flooded the activity stream. With just Buddypress and GMW the updates on activity stream stopped. So for now I have Xprofile Fields deactivated.

This problem just keeps getting worse. I tried deactivating all the plugins but the only way to stop the location updates from spamming the activity stream is if I deactivate Geo My WP.
Can I just remove all location updates from the activity stream? How can I do this?
Can anyone please help me? If this continues I won’t be able to continue using Geo My WP or the Xprofile fields add-on.
