When do you intend on doing this? do you mean to attach a listener to the site waiting for a new site column to be created?

comment SP2013 Custom Workflow Deployment issues
I've not only recycled the service, I've recycled the entire server to no avail. Something seems to be holding on to the wrong workflow DLL.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
Doesn't look like its working with my version of SP2013/VS2012. JSLink works fine in the CustomField but not in the form tag in schema.xml.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
I'd gone down the route of using JSLink on the field itself to validate it, I didnt know it could be used on the form itself.

comment Why does SPList.GetItems(string fields[]) return more fields than specified?
is there a typo on that code? shouldnt it be an array of strings you're passing in instead of just comma separated values? SPListItemCollection items = list.GetItems(new string[]{"UniqueId", "Name"});

comment ListDefinition and ListInstance failures with custom content type
I think it was to do with spaces in names - essentially I removed my ListDefinition and ListInstance, renamed my SiteColumns and ContentType Fields with no spaces and recreated my ListDefinition and ListInstance, it all deploys nicely now.

comment Custom Workflow Feature not available in Site Features or Site Collection Features
doesnt clicking Deploy Solution from Central Administration install the feature? anyway Get-SPFeature shows the feature as being in the Web Application already. Using Enable-SPFeature made my workflows available but I need to figure out why the feature isnt in Site Collection Features

comment Controlling which feature a project element is added to
I know I can move them, but I'd have preferred to be able to specify them at creation time.

comment Contact details not showing user information
I think thats correct - I added the user manually to the visitors group, a new entry was made in the User Profile List and I was able to add the user in the contact details web part. Can you add your comment as an answer and I'll accept it.
