Temporarily, we will all have two profiles. One for the main site and one for the forums. We are waiting for a patch to integrate the functionality of both profiles into one.
For the time being, your subscriptions, favorites and the list of your posts can be found in the forum profile. You can access this via the "My Profile" link which displays to the the right of your avatar when you are in the Trash Talk section of the site. Clicking on another member's name in a forum thread will bring you to their forum profile.
A list of member's articles and other personal information that they wish to share can be found in the their main site profile. Clicking on a members name in the comment area or via the member list will bring you to their main site profile.
There are areas for inputting personal information to share in the forum profile. You can use it or not as you wish, however, when we get the patch, that information will be blown away and not move to the main profile.
We have integrated the personal messaging system into the forum profile, so you can access it either there or via the message that displays under the Login/Logout on the left menu.
Your main account information - password and e-mail are also integrated, and can be accessed via either profile.
Although a signature box displays, it is turned off.
The display of the forum profile area is kind of squished, but we are not going to invest time into cleaning it up, as we are optimistic that we will have a patch soon, and the forum profile display area will go away. At that time, all the forum profile functionality will be moved to the single main site profile.
We are sorry for this two profile mess, but felt it was the best solution to allow members access to full functionality of both sides of the site.
