does it let you....
« on: July 08, 2008, 12:15:02 UTC »
will this forum give you optional fields you can turn on in the profiles?

where we could maybe list certs, experience, etc?

just a thought, sometimes you're looking to know who has what, and what type o diving they do?
Did you know even Titanium regs will freeflow at 4 degrees C?

I agree.  Some simple schema including # of dives and where.

Did you hear back from Undercurrent/Eagleray on this?

<LOL> No, not yet. Wasn't exactly expecting to..,.,

but the UBB and UBB Threads has some basics (and this is a clone of those)... plus you can add additional optional information to ask folks and then include in their profile.

I second the idea of more possible info on the profile. It adds a better sense of credibility to some one's opinion knowing what kind of knowledge they bring to their posts.

I think it should also be able to let you show the person's location under their name and icon as well... that might help our international feel. :-)

Yes, these capabilities are there.  I created two to start: they are "number of dives" and "UW Photographer?" options that you can set in your profile -- see that in Profile/Forum Profile Information, near the bottom.

DocV is officially moderator here (I'm the techy), so I'm leaving such decisions about what options are wanted up to him and Ben.  Some sort of poll on this is probably good.  For now I suggest putting in your thoughts about what you'd like to see.
