Default Profiles


A question for the-powers-that-be:


Is it just my browser or have the profiles disappeared?

I try not to say anything in a crit that is age inappropriate but now, I haven't a clue whether the writer is fifteen or fifty.

They haven't disappeared--just changed a bit When you click on the username, you have to click on the "About Me" tab. If the member has chosen to include information about themselves, that's where you'd find it.

Thanks - Then, I guess a lot of new people aren't filling out profiles. That's a shame for I have only a limited amount of nice in me and I try to save that for younger writers. Now, no one's safe.

Tell you what, if you read anything of mine again you can hold back all the nice and I'll take what's left. For the greater good.

There arent any about me tabs on profiles now.

I noticed the same thing you did a while back, Adrian, but forgot to mention it so cheers for putting up a thread about it.

I used to use the profile link for getting a quick view of people's posted threads list so I could get to their work for feedback reciprocation easily. But back when the last lot of big changes were made to the forum, the profiles all disappeared, becoming only visible to buddies. Fine if you only want to look at people's profiles you know but not so good when you're trying to give feedback to strangers and havent time to search through forum listings in the hope of spotting their name.

It's probably just a case of an admin or similar going behind the scenes and changing the visibility option for profiles to all instead of friends only or whatever it's set to now.

Each member can set his/her profile visibility to what they would like it. If they want everyone to see it, they can set it to that. If they want "friends only" to see it, that's another setting. I think they can set it so that no one sees it, as well.

If you go into your User CP, on the left side, there's a link called "Profile Privacy" (second one down, I think). From there, you can change the settings.

I just checked mine and they're all set to "everyone" so it must be something else.

Edit; Interesting. When I checked the profile privacy setting I hit save out of habit and now my profile is viewable to everyone. That means there's got to be some glitch somewhere that means everyone's profile is set to everyone but they're not showing unless the user actually goes in and manually saves the existing settings...

Anyway, no idea what I'm talking about really. I just thought I'd share my musings with you all.

That must be what it is, CandraH. The system must assume that everyone wants it "private" until told otherwise. Good catch!
