How do I customize my profile?

Answer: 

Editing your profile

You can edit your profile at any time by finding your name on the grey toolbar on the top of the page (i.e., if you are logged in as "Andrew", just select "Andrew") and then clicking "edit my profile" on the menu underneath. You can also edit your profile by clicking the "Edit Profile" link from your profile itself.

Uploading a picture

Click "Passwords & settings" under your name on the grey toolbar on the top of the page (i.e., if you are logged in as "Andrew", just select "Andrew"). Scroll down until you see the "Picture" header. Select the "Choose Picture" button, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, and click "Save". Your picture must be larger than 200x200 pixels, but less than 2 mb in size, and must be in a common format (jpg, gif, or png).

Customizing the colors in your profile (new!)

You can customize the colors in your profile by going to your profile (there's several ways to get there, but a handy shortcut is to simply click on your name on the grey toolbar on the top of the page) and then clicking "Edit profile colors" within the profile. Click the color you wish to edit, and you'll see a popup that allows you to select the appropiate color.

To select a color:

#1 - First click the color block (show as green / #1). A window will appear which will let you select the color.

#2 - Drag the slider (shown as yellow / #2) up and down to select the right color

#3 - Drag the circular color selector (shown as orange / #3) to fine tune your selection and pick the appropiate hue

#4 - Click away from the dark window (can be in the location of the red / #4 arrow, but can really be anywhere). Your color is now selected.

To save your selection, click the "Save" button on the bottom of the page. 

Note: You must be a premium member for this feature to work.
