    I would like to request that members (new and old) try to fill in their profile page in more detail. We don't expect your name and address or your bank details :) but the country you are from and few details about you would help to make you more interesting. So many profiles are just a name and sex.
     
  2. One thing that might help is some attention on the profile form... there are several duplicate fields (Location & Occupation are there twice) and both a "Biography" and a "About You" field... very confusing :D

  3. I saw your comment in a thread and did this earlier today. It only took a few moments.

    I will inform Admin about this.
     
  5. The duplicate fields are intentional, I believe. They designate where the information supplied is displayed on your profile page. I added some details to mine ;)
     
  6. Added some info to mine! Now to come up with some proper "about me" stuff!

  8. Who remembers the image pixel size of the banner on one's profile page... for those forget members like myself a helpful stickie someplace would be nice that reminds us of the various limits or recommendations for avatars, banners, et al images... thanks!
     
  9. How can I get my screen name changed? I want to fill my profile out more but I used my email addy as my screen name (didn't honestly think I would be posting... I was wrong.)
     
  10. I would also like to know how to change my screen name. I sent a request to admin. several months ago about this but did not get a response.
    I 'm pretty sure I've noticed a few screen names evolve, so I'm pretty sure it can happen. Any help would be appreciated.

    The best way is to name check @Administrator@Administrator who will respond eventually. Beyond that, you can report your own profile, or the above posts, and in the comment section mention you'd like your name changed to Whatever.

    They're about the best ways to get it done tbh.

  12. Yes Mistress! My sincere apologies! I'm afraid I am not very diligent filling out forms, nor am I an IT technical person, however today I did post an Avatar. I hope you and the other Mistresses approve! Next week I will return to fill in my profile page in more detail. Thank you for your indulgence and guidance! :)
     
  13. I'm adding more info to my profile

    excellent :)
     
  15. I had posted some descriptive info on my profile some time back, only to have it just disappear. That is called a data loser, not cool.

    Did you remember to click "save" before closing ???? I haven't heard of anyone losing info before.
     
  17. No, it had been there for a long time, and I had not changed it. It just disappeared a few months back.

    That was probably when Jens changed around the format for the info section, adding some sections and removing others. I lost a chunk as well.

    Well there you have the reason from Verity. You can re-write it and it should now be safe as houses.
     
  20. Understood. But, it is troubling that this would happen at all. Data should never get lost like that.

    In an ideal world, no but accidents happen and upgrading software causes glitches to occur.
     
  22. Still unable to figure out how to change my screen name.. Any help would be appreciated.
     
  23. please what you has to do is to ask the Admin man and then he does it.
     
  24. I thought I looked high and low, but haven't found how the site allows me to contact Admin. Under what tab or part of the web site can I initiate
    this function. Thanks Jemima for your experience and help.
