I'm a little stuck with the registration flow on my site. What I have is a multi-user environment, where each user can, but does not have to, create a secondary/Profile2 "shop" profile.
Now I don't want to just expose the Profile2 shop type to everyone. So I've set up a shopkeeper role, and would like to somehow allow users to request or opt into the role. This isn't for security or anything. It just doesn't look professional having the menu link available to users who don't want or need the profile. Also, some newbie is bound to get curious and enter random crap, which will later mess with the display of their content.
My solution was to use a flag on the user page, which triggers a rule to promote the user, but the problem is; there's no Flag option to prevent users from being able to flag other user's accounts. Unless I use a page template to hide the flag link, but that's a perhaps a little too hacky, and as far as I understand, doesn't actually disable the link.
All I really want is some sort of link or checkbox somewhere(preferably on the user-page) saying, "I have a shop, lemme create a profile". So if anyone has a suggestion for my issue, it would be greatly appreciated!
