Your profile is the information about yourself that others see when they click on your username.
The Public Profile
page allows you to fill in many sections to share information about yourself with other messageboard users including 'Display Name', 'Homepage', and your birthdate.
Clicking on the 'question mark' next to a profile option will open a window with more detailed information about that item.
If you don't want to share some information or it doesn't apply to you (for example: you don't have a 'Homepage'), you can leave the space blank.
Use the Bio
text area to share a short biography of yourself. There is a limit of 500 characters for this section. (The character counter
will keep track of the amount of characters you've used. Note: if you use coding in your profile, this also counts as part of the characters used.)
A word of caution! Don't share any personal information such as phone numbers, addresses, etc on any public messageboards. Be aware that if you do, this information is visible and available to EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET, not only those users of your website messageboard.
