Modifying Your Profile
« on: April 02, 2016, 11:27:11 AM »
I thought we had a standard post addressing how our members could modify their user profiles, but I can't find it.

Why would someone want to modify their user profile?  For me personally, it allows other users to see what my impairments are and I can possibly get advice or suggestions from them.  I am always looking for new research dealing with Bipolar Disorder.  I think that most (all) users should list their impairment(s), so other members can offer specific rather than general advice on issues being encountered.

I don't necessarily think that a user should have their email as public, nor do I think a user should use their actual name as their screen name.  Whether or not they choose to list their location is also personal choice, but I know that members have met in person because of the board.

Exact dates of when someone first applied, appealed, etc... are not important, ballpark figures are OK.  It gives the rest of us time frames to refer to.

To modify your profile, double-click on your screen name; which will bring up a new section of the board.  Go to the "Forum Profile Information" tab on the right-side and double-click on that.  Make the changes that you wish to, and then click Change Profile located at the bottom left-side of section.

To get back to forum, just click on the Forum tab on the top of the page you are on.

I wish more members would at least fill out the sections of their profile that include the status of their case. Makes it easier to offer help if that information is readily available.

Their age is a big help too because age can make a difference. A lot of people put their age down when they first join, but they forget to change it when they have birthdays. Their state can also be helpful if they need help with things like medical, food, etc. Their state can also help if they are waiting for an ALJ hearing.

If you have personal identifying info we can modify posts and we can close your account but it's unnecessary.  You can change your user name or remove info in your bio.  If you no longer want to participate, you can simply not return.  We will not delete posts because the info is available for everyone.
