The recent update to our community platform means your profile looks new and has new features!
If you do this - Mission - The Profiler - your profile will look better and be more useful.
Here's what's new and what it means to you:
As you can see, there's a lot more information than that.. Take a look at just how much shows up on one page of your profile now.
Here's what it used to look like:
Let's go through the new features individually!
This area includes several key items,
including the main user details, profile photo, and actions.
If you complete the Mission - The Profiler,
this information will be conveyed more clearly here.
Your avatar photo is now front and center in your profile.
This will help people recognize who you are in the community,
since the avatar is what they see whenever you create or
interact with content and in streams.
This is a drop down menu where interactions with the profile
you're viewing can take place from.
You can do things such as communicate via direct message,
or download their user details via vcard.
The ability to see all your points is located near the top
of the banner and is clickable to take you to the leaderboard.
You also can set your location without editing the profile.
Simply click the input and type in the location and it will
add it for you.
This is still able to be viewed and interacted with as it
always has been only now it's in the left side bar.
Even though the top profile picture is now your avatar,
all your existing photos still exist untouched and are in
a showcase area called recent images.
Did you know you can "endorse" someone for their skills? Navigate to her/his profile page and scroll down. You'll see "skills" and the option to endorse. Click "view all," to see a list of all their skills. Hover, and a blue "+" shows up to add your endorsement to their skill. If you don't see a skill you'd like to endorse, you can add it by clicking "endorse" and typing in the skill.
