Ok so I know there is a forum explaining this but we also will have any important info pages in here too - forum posts move all the time and it saves to keep bumbing them up!
Hi guys, me again *waves*
Ok so I just wanted to fill you in on a little about your profile area! Your profile page is very important to:
yourself - it's like your home, you can tell us what on your mind in there! Tell us about yourself, answer questions about your fave style of writing, fave authors, quotes and more!
For other members - this is your advert to other members, this is the place you showcase your work, where they read about your likes/dislikes, your hobbies,and your talents! If they like what they see and you sound friendly, they'll add you as a friend, and leave comments on your profile!
Run through of profile pages:
* On your profile page you can add a pic to your icon! It's much more nicer to have a pic in place rather than no pic at all - some members may think that you arn't active if you have no pic! *please note profile pics are not to be of yourself - see rules page up top for details* So, find a nice or silly icon and get uploading - we wanna see! Just click the 'edit profile' button and away you go!
* Once in 'edit profile' you can do all sorts of things to your page!
The first tab is 'Edit Profile' In here you can, change your name, upload a profile pic, Tell us about yourself in the 'about me' section, add a signature if you want to, and answer mulitpile questions about various different stuff!
The second tab is 'Notification Prefrences' Now this tab is very important if, like me, you want to recieve notifications on the work you have submitted! Example: if you want to be notfied of comments on your work! You have the option to be notified: Immedaitely, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly! (I have all mine set to Immedaitley)
The third tab is 'Edit Account' In here ou can edit your email address, gender, birthday, and timezone. Not much to say really here!
The fourth and final tab is 'Change Password' Pretty self explanitary here!
Ok so once you get that out the way the next thing you wanna do is see your profile - so click submit and it will take you back out to your main profile page - it should say your changes have been saved!
Now you will notice your profile is looking much nicer! On the left you have your icon, underneath that you have your inbox, and edit profile button. Next is your general button, then comes all your fab friends you have made since you joined. Then site membership (this is just all the sites with webs that you have joined).
In the middle you have your 'What's on your mind' speech bubble - use it, its fun! Tell us, we realyy wanna know! Type it in and press update and that's you!
Underneath that shows all your recent activity - again important as myslef and Dec will be looking here for our monthly mods!
under that you have your about me section - isn't it pretty now you've told us about your wonderful self?
Under that you have your comments from other members - in here you can reply to comments from other members but it doesn't show on your profile, it will show on theirs and vice versa!
Ok so that's your main profile page! If you look up the top, just above your icon, you will see three more tabs! you see? good, listen up -
Tab 1 - Main (I've just explained it up there ^^^^^ no need to go over it and bore you all again)
Tab 2 - Info - This is where all your questions you answered earlier shows! Click it and see, I'll wait!
You see? Pretty good info going on in there for other members to see!
Tab 3 - Friends - woo hoo we all like friends don't we? I'm talking about talking about real ones not the tv show although that is rather good too...anyway, in here you see all your new friends you make - you can add a member as a friend by clicking into their profiile, under their actions, 'add as friend' - once they accept your request, your buddies!
So, that's pretty much the profile pages explained - as you can see, your profile page is your 'hub', your 'home', your 'showcase' - please use them to experience the full benefit of this wonderful site!
Ps - any questions, hit the reply button, and we will get back to you asap!
