Opentalk allows you to fill out a profile which tells people about you.
PROFILE OVERVIEWYou can have your name, age, instant messenger information, personal avatar, and more!
EDITING PROFILETo change your profile, click the "Profile" option in the forum menu.
PROFILE OPTIONS- Password
Passwords have no restrictions, but it is recommended that you type at least 6 characters, using a combination of characters and numbers. Both password fields must be the same, simply as a check that you typed it correctly.
This is your real or displayed name. This is what will be shown throughout the forum, in place of your username.
Example: John Doe
- Email Address
This must be valid to register - your password will be sent there. Other things may be sent to this email address by the forum, such as topic notifications if you request them. It is also required if you ever wish to retreive a forgotton password. If you choose to hide your email address (this is the default on opentalk), your email address will not be available to other users of the forum, and will not be "harvested" by crawlers.
You get two choices. Male or Female. This is an optional field to provide other users with your gender.
Your birthdate. It also allows opentalk to display special items on your birthday, and also to display your age in your profile!
This is an optional field. You may type your current location or where you live in this field. It is displayed in your profile for other visitors to see.
- Time Offset
This is a + or - number to add or subtract to the current time showing on the forum. The forum's server operates using British time (since the forum has English roots), but you may be elsewhere.
Example: Forum time shows 13:28, but your time is 14:28. Time Offset would be +1
This is a brief message or list of urls's that you may type in. YaBBC code is allowed in your signature. Signatures are shown at the bottom of each of your posts.
