The profile screen in the default theme normally consists of a single main pane, with an additional menu to the left to lead you through the editing options for your own profile. Please note that, because an SMF forum may be customized extensively by its administrator(s), the features and user permissions described here are typical rather than definitive.

To edit your own profile, start by selecting Profile from the main menu or clicking your own username. You can also view (but not edit) other members' profiles by clicking on their names.

While the Summary screen is the same as the one shown above and the Show Posts and Show Stats links are effectively duplicates, profile owners are also provided with the tools to customize their own profiles:

Modify Profile

  • Forum Profile Information enables you to enter optional personal details such as gender, birthdate, location, website and instant messenger contact information. It's also where you go to enter your own personal text and signature and select an avatar (personal picture) from a list (if provided by the forum administrators) or link to one of your own on the web.
  • Look and Layout Preferences enables you to select your preferred theme (forum skin), time zone and format and other personal choices for layout settings. Note that the currently selected option in the menu pane is highlighted in bold type:

Atrius: Thanks for letting me know, it should be fixed now.
Yesterday at 11:47:02 PM
Fox: Okay cool.  Speaking about broken things = There was some error I've known about for awhile now:  When you try to upload something to the Downloads section. The user may think the upload failed, but it actually succeeds. - I wonder if that was one of the few things? And whether that could be fixed if it hasn't yet.
Yesterday at 11:42:01 PM
Atrius: Oops, that wasn't even supposed to go up.  So, our hosting company moved the site over to a different server, and I was just updating some settings to fix things that broke in the move.
Yesterday at 11:39:18 PM
Fox: @Atrius: Probably going to need to update the Maintenance Description... I was confused at first, but it says 20 Mar 2017.

dawnbomb: can someone link me the discord

Majora: That's hilarious, lmao. I thought it read like something you might have written, Fox, was almost unsure if it was a bot at first
September 18, 2017, 03:01:57 PM
Fox: Yeah, he copied this post: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1425.0
September 18, 2017, 02:57:48 PM
Fox: (Although, not sure about the last part, it just feels strangely familiar for some reason.)
September 18, 2017, 02:56:43 PM
Fox: BOT ALERT! Kill it, kill it! I think it copied one of my posts? :P
September 17, 2017, 12:58:02 AM
Fox: Not saing we actually need those ofcourse (we don't?), but more saying that minorities could get too attached to them.
September 17, 2017, 12:54:47 AM
Fox: I think it's interesting how Facebook likes to start things, and then retire them. For example, Advanced Search, and E-mail. - They seemed like pretty fine features in my opinion, but retiring them because most people aren't using them at that time? I'm not sure if they know what they're doing, but it sound like they don't. :P
September 14, 2017, 12:59:16 PM
Fox: (At leat when I think about establishments...)  ; Oops, pardon my rudeness... .I forgot to welcome you back.... Well... WElcome back! We are glad you've returned.
September 14, 2017, 12:52:57 PM
Fox: (Just want to clarify that "founded" may be an actual word, but sounds weird the way it was used.)
September 14, 2017, 12:47:42 PM
Fox: Cringy? Let me check... Hm... Low number of posts [check] (5 posts) ; misspellings/grammar [check] ("Toturial" (Torture-ial?) , ; founded, ehh.... double past-tense?) ; The best part is at least the posts have a positive attitude! (That may be the most important part?) :)
September 14, 2017, 05:59:01 AM
KeinoGSTLA: back then my posts were so cringy lmao
September 14, 2017, 05:58:39 AM
KeinoGSTLA: damn feels good to find this place again
September 10, 2017, 04:27:04 PM
Fox: I don't suppose there is anything else? ;; Hmmm... What if a Big Brother game was similar to ... er.... Exit/Corners .... which seems to have a Trust system. 
September 06, 2017, 11:02:17 AM
Plexa: Honestly we haven't looked into that ... I completely forgot about it until now!
September 06, 2017, 05:44:33 AM
Fox: (Referring to the box/crate that would allow you to get stuck.)
September 06, 2017, 05:43:42 AM
Fox: Is SW Atteka Islet the only one that forgets to update the heightmap when save/resetting? ... The Move pillar seems to update it fine... Hm.
