In response to numerous requests, we have reconfigured the profile control panel!

To access your control panel, click PROFILE on the top-right.

Among the changes:

- More streamlined interface, with multiple pages and menus.

- More info fields, including lots of information you won't want to give out!

- Ignore and Buddy User. Now you can stop from having to see users' posts if all they do is bother you! (Look under Profile - Buddy - Ignore)

- And lots of general shininess. If you're having trouble finding a specific function, come to #nightstar and ask for help. :)

By the way, in case you hadn't figured it out already, names show up in different colors depending on their "status" on the board... Cyan for regular users, yellow for moderators, etc...

And the little dot by each person's name will be grey if they're not currently browsing the Zoo, and green if they are.

Despite the opinion of whoever changed my post to say "I am such a dumbass", I still insist these changes are pretty lame.

I must be blind. Where in the new profile section is the "change forum skin" option?

It seems I'm the first with substatial complaints.

I like the changes. It's much better than before... it just needs some tweaks.

First, is a bug I believe. I can't get my email not to be displayed. Even though I set it not to be displayed.

Second. I don't like the fact that your gender has to be displayed. Ambiguity is one of the fun parts of paricipating in a forum. Besides, having "Unknown" next to your gender makes you seem like you're confused. Like you can't tell. :P

Third. I set my profile to have my online status hidden. The dot turns yellow, but my name is up in the "users currently browsing the forum" bar. I can only assume that this is either a bug, or I'm the only one who can see that.

Can you change it back so that avatars are aligned left? That's the only part that really bugs me about the whole change. :P

I voiced a few complaints in the Melonpool forum, but I've since calmed down and come to embrace a lot of the changes. You guys have done a great job.

I agree with LCARS about the gender listing, though. As I said on the other forum, I don't mind it being in the profile, but I don't particularly like having it next to every post a person makes. The items listed there are an introduction, and I don't see why gender should be one of the first things people notice about you online.

Frankly, as a woman in a sci-fi forum, I know I'm in the minority. I know that some people, conciously or not, would think about my comments differently if they knew my gender.

Besides, I derive a lot of pleasure from catching people off-guard when they find out months after they've been reading my posts. :)

You know, I bet there are forums with a half dozen choices for gender, besides Unknown... (And, yes, I'm thinking furries when I say that.)

I don't have a problem with the gender button. I'm proud of everything about me.

I've seen pictures. He'd make an ugly guy, too.

I love the changes! Of course, as a mod I can't ignore people, but I wouldn't have anyways. Fortunately it looks like no one can ignore me either!

The only thing I'd like is my paw prints back. It appears that anyone with a custom title looses their prints. :(

Give it long enough and you get over that mentality real quick.

Apparently Gerald found a way to sneak through the ignore so mods can ignore, and be ignored. Innnnteressting.
