Profile Options

- Password
Passwords have no restrictions, but it is recommended that you type at least 6 characters, using a combination of characters and numbers. Both password fields must be the same, simply as a check that you typed it correctly.
Example: xd8bill
- Name
This is your real or displayed name. This is what will be shown throughout the forum, in place of your username.
Example: John Doe
- Email Address
This must be valid to register, and things may be sent to this email address by the forum, such as topic notifications. It is also required if you ever wish to retrieve a forgotten password.
Example: me@mydomain.com
- Gender
You get two choices. Male or Female ;) This is an optional field to provide other users with your gender.
- Birthdate
Your birthdate, in MMDDYYYY form. The birthday is only used to ensure that you are old enough to register on the forum. It also allows YaBB to display special items on your birthday.
Example: 07 31 1981
- Location
This is an optional field. You may type your current location or where you live in this field. It is displayed in your profile for other visitors to see.
- Time Offset
This is a + or - number to add or subtract to the current time showing on the forum. The forum's server may be in a different time zone than your computer.
Example: Forum time shows 13:28, but your time is 14:28. Time Offset would be +1
- Signature
This is a brief message or list of urls's that you may type in. YaBBC code is allowed in your signature. Signatures are shown at the bottom of each of your posts.
Example: | my site | my other site |
