I recommend that players post their defensive carding agreements on their profiles in addition to on their posted convention cards. It would be much faster for opponents to check the profile during play than to access the cards.

I feel confident that the 1,000's of players registered on BBO will adopt this recommendation forthwith.

Again, I'll ask you what I am supposed to do... my three regular partnerships:
  • UDCA&SP, Reverse Smith/NT, TrumpSP/suit, A=Att, K=Kount
  • UDCA, 2nd from garbage
  • Standard, except middle only encourage T1

I'm sure if I were willing to learn to play fancy discarding systems in tempo, I'd have some partners want that too (but not those three).

And if I'm playing pickup, and my carding is UD and partner's is standard - which one is right?

Putting carding (and for that matter conventions) doesn't work for me.
I use completely different systems with several partners.
Carding is easy enough to check on your cc.
I also use Chat Manager to pre-type carding disclosures at start of round.

click on the chat (not the line you type, but the chat that has been sent. The option at the bottom is "Chat Manager".

When you select that, you're offered a list of texts that you've already loaded, the ability to edit or delete them, or to create another. If you select one, it will ask you to whom to say it (table, opponents, player). Click, and go.

Frustrating part is that the boxes appear where you last put them (which for me is all over the place, even after I "clear it up"), and you have to close each of the boxes after selecting the one line you want to push out every round.

But players often have different agreements with different partners.

You can have different Convention Cards with each Partner.

Yes, but the suggestion was to put it in your profile, and you only have one profile.
