    One of the most asked questions is "How do I edit my...". It's easy, so easy it's overlooked.

    Here are a few screen shots to help you out..

    Currently you can find "home-base" to your profile in the upper left corner. It's easy to find if you have a photo attached to your profile. Otherwise, you'll see your name and a generic avatar.

    Once you click on your name in the upper left corner, a drop down menu will appear. From there you have access to just about every setting you need to update your profile and more.

    Need to edit your signature - click on signature and you'll be taken straight to the Edit Signature page.

    After clicking on any of the several option in the dropdown, you have 2 options to continue editing. You can go back to your home-base profile link OR use the menu found on the left as seen in the screen shot above.

    *IMPORTANT - Use the Personal Profile link to EDIT and UPDATE your profile. If you've been part of the community for awhile, you will want to update this section while uploading a new profile image. We do ask that EVERYONE has a photo attached to their profile.

    The more information you have in your profile, the better your engagement will be with less chance of being moderated.

    **Side Note: Vendors - don't go all crazy with your signature line. We have several members that like to use their signature lines as a billboard. This is frowned upon and breaks up the flow of the forums. Plus it's straight up tacky.

    If you have anymore questions on how to Edit your profile, please post them below and I'll get them answered for you.

    There is no way to change/edit your dealer or company name.

    Edit: Found it, you need to click on the account type box first for it show up.

    Is it alright to remain anonymous on these forums? I noticed many people list their names, title, background, etc.

    You'll get much more out of this is if you choose not to.

    We very much discourage being anonymous and @Jeff Kershner@Jeff Kershner will likely hound you until you fill out your profile and add a real picture.

    For an online community to thrive, knowing who is in the community, which members are participating within the community. Knowing these tends to be a tilt

    Quite a few peoples' careers have improved through their sharing of ideas and assistance to others. Kind of hard to gain from your own community contributions when nobody knows who you are.

    Speaking of photos, here's a cool start up idea: https://www.photofeeler.com/

    Have others vote on your photo. Cool feedback tool. Find the photo that other people like the most and use it as your sig on all your internet work.

    I just did mine, I'll post the [gulp] results!
