Why Edit Your Profile?
You can keep your Wordsmoker Profile as sparse as you want. As you know, all you need to sign up to Wordsmoker is a username, a password and an email address. But if you’re interested in the social side of the Wordsmoker community and want to continue to grow it, you can use your Wordsmoker profile to paint a more detailed picture of who you actually are.
By default, all Wordsmoker profiles only contain your on-screen name. The rest of the information you provide is completely optional. Fill out as many fields as you feel fine with, and as long as you’re logged in, you can edit it any time you wish.
View Your Profile
To view your profile, and see how it currently appears to other Wordsmokers, you need to be logged in. Once you’re logged in you can check your “Public” Profile by hovering over “My Account” (which is on the menu across the top of Wordsmoker), waiting for the sub-menu to drop, then moving to “Profile” and then choosing “Public”.
How To Edit Your Profile
As above, hover over “My Account”, and the sub-menu will drop down. Move down to “Profile” and an additional menu will appear. Click on “Edit Profile” to begin editing your information.
You will now see a screen where underneath your Messaging, Friend, Group and Profile functions it says “My Wordsmoker”.
As you will see, the only required field (Name) has been already filled out for you. The rest of all the fields are completely optional. You only need to fill out fields you want to fill out, with information you’d like to share to others logged onto Wordsmoker.
The most helpful of the optional fields is “Your Wordsmoker Status”. Although still optional, you can choose from the drop-down options to let others know if you write for Wordsmoker, only comment or lurk on the site, or are lurking with intent and thinking about writing.
The rest of the optional fields are yours to populate. How much or how little you type in the fields is up to you. Please only fill out what you’re comfortable with.
