Default An Extended "About Me"?

Hey everyone! Thanks for clicking. (:
I've been on this site for a while now, and I've always thought that we should have an extended "About Me" section on our profiles. [Right now it only has your signature (;]
Of course, there would have to be rules and regulations to go along with the extended section.
I was thinking we could maybe have a moderator or staff member approve your "About Me" section before others can view it.
Also, I think it would be cool to give us questions with blanks that we could fill in about ourselves! [Example: Favorite Webkinz? ______ ]
It's just a suggestion, but I think it would be popular!
Questions? Ideas? Opinions? Post 'em! (:

Thanks for reading!
Rachel.

Default Re: An Extended "About Me"?

I think that'd be a really cool idea.

but...

It has been suggested before, but the Staff say no because it would be very hard to keep track of what everybody posted and making sure they weren't sharing any personal info. I like how you suggested that we have the Staff check our's over before we post it, but I'm sure they have much more better and important things to be doing, sorry...

I still like the idea and wish it were possible.

This wont be happening, sorry. Even if a staff member DID check it, it would be easy to change it.

They used to have this feature, but now you can't do it.
It would be cool if it had like questions for you to answer like
What is your hobby? And it would give you a text box.
What is your favorite color? and so on so forth...

My only way of having more information about me was to write up an introduction in "Hi, my name is Joe" and link to that in my signature. I wish that I could have more information for my profile.

Default Re: An Extended "About Me"?

I wish! But this has been suggested before.
It was turned down because young members would give away too much information.
But, personally, I think it's a great idea!

Default Re: An Extended "About Me"?

It would be cool, but it'd be hard on the staff. Maybe if we'd have a little "About Me Approvers" group of trusted people, it would be different.

I think this would be cool, but it has been suggested before and turned down.
I, myself, think this is a good idea though.

This is going back some years, but on a BBS (Bulletin Board Service) I use to help administer the way we got around the 'risk' of members changing their 'About Me' post was that changes only appeared AFTER they were approved.

To control the workload on the moderators, requested changes were only reviewed monthly. If you wanted to remove something about you your only options were to (1) wait 30 days for the Mod to get back around to your account, or (2) you were able to 'Hide' your entire BIO.

But thinking about Hmm's solution of linking to their 'Hi, my name is Joe' post from the signature gave me an interesting idea. Rather than writing a 'BIO' could the information in a members 'Hi, my name is Joe' post simply be displayed (or even a BIO button be added which would provide a hot link to the members 'Joe' post)?

That way there would be no increase in workload fo the Mods.
