Update your Profile!

Postby Mike » Tue, Mar 11 2008, 11:14 AM

I added a new item to our profiles: Real Name.
I like being able to match up forum names with folk's real names. Especially for new members. That way, when we meet at a club fly or kite festival, I feel I already know something about you based on your posts.

For example, if new folks were to meet Ken, they wouldn't know who he is on the forum.

Anyway, it's optional, but if you would like to update your profile:

Click on Profile at the top of this page.
Click on Profile Information
Scroll to the bottom and enter your real name.

thanks!

Does the real name get used anywhere else in the forum aside from the individual's profile page?
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

Jeff, nope... it's a custom field added to the registration module and not used anywhere else within the phpbb system. We also have a couple of other custom fields like if you are an AKA member, etc..

Yours is cool also Babb--playing in the California surf!
That means all the previous avatars are from California. Mine is from San Diego and I'm assuming Kitehead's is from CA too.

Not true, for anybody I have met anywhere, I tell them what my screen name is and I also have my real name in my signature.?

Mine's from KP2. I was a lot thinner then. Taken by Dan Whitney. I was flying my Wedding Genki, hence the smile.

My (so-called) name is in my signature too.



from Walt Whitman:



WHAT AM I AFTER ALL

What am I after all but a child, pleas'd with the sound of my own
name? repeating it over and over;
I stand apart to hear—it never tires me.To you your name also;
Did you think there was nothing but two or three pronunciations in
the sound of your name?

At the same time, if you haven't put up an avatar for yourself (that self promoting little picture on the right), PLEASE DO!

There are a bunch of kite avatars available in the profile section or you can upload almost anything you like. The requirements are

1) 100 x 100 pixels
2) .gif, .jpg, .png picture type
3) Less than 10K in size (yes, I made it a little bit bigger)

If you need any help in doing this please let any of us know. We'll even be happy to resize your photo for you if you don't want to mess with it..

Thanks!
