New profile field for hardware configuration

Postby uncle_fungus » Fri Jun 13, 2008 10:33 pm

Since the upgrade went smoothly this evening I decided to add a new field to your profiles.

You should all now have a "Hardware configuration" profile field for you to give details about your folding rigs (saves them all being in people's sigs). The primary use for this field is to help people help you. It's so much easier when we know what hardware and software you have ;)

Note that this field does not support bbcode.

P.S. The hardware list does not appear in posts, it's only shown when you click on that user's profile button. That button is at the bottom of everyone's posts (like this one... Image)

Or, if you aren't one of the 4 members that use the subsilver theme ( ;) ), click on their avatar or username.
