Beginner question

sibba | Posted in General Discussion on

Hello…Just joined and am learning the ropes on how to be on the discussion. I look forward to being here every so often. I have always believed that people that sew are really nice people so this should be fun.

I do not see how to set up a profile.  I am guessing that  the profile is to be a little something about myself as it would relate to sewing.  Coul an “old timer” point out to me what I am not seeing on my screen that would be giving me   “set up profile” option.  Thanks

    To see MY PROFILE and other options available, Look Under the red banner across the top of the page, you will see

    START | LOGOUT | MESSAGES | OUTLINE | MY FORUMS

    Look under the  PURPLE BANNER LABELLED  MY INFO, THEN CLICK ON MY PROFILE.

    Select 'CHANGE PROFILE' and you can enter some info about yourself which you might like others to know.

    Then click on SUBMIT.  This information will be available to anyone who signs into the forum and clicks on your name, so you may wish to be selective about what you enter there.

    There are a few other options  "My Prefs", "Favorites" and 'View Friends" which you may or may not wish to complete.

    You can click on anyone's name in the To: or From: lines of any post, to peek at their profiles, or to send them a message.

    Hope this helps, and welcome to Gatherings.

    Unfortunately, anything other than your email address is not a part of the profile. It would be nice if there were a place to describe yourself or your sewing experience, ie, new to sewing or fiber artist. Perhaps Threads can help us out here.

      Hi solosmocker:

      "It would be nice if there were a place to describe yourself or your sewing experience, ie, new to sewing or fiber artist. Perhaps Threads can help us out here."

      That option is available, but not many members have opted to take advantage of it. 

      Click on the To: and From: fields in the messages under the Talk with Us heading.  You will see some members have more than just their e-mail addresses, but of the 36 messages, there are only about 5 posters who have opted to include much in their profile.

      Click on this page of the Profiles/Preferences and you can see more of what is available to add.

    When you are at the GATHERINGS section of THREADS site... I think you can set up or update a PROFILE when you click on the link located in the upper right corner (navy blue, underlined and caps) just under the horizontal, red bar.

    This prompt is located directly under the GATHERING DISCUSSIONS section of the red bar.
