To edit your profile, click the "Profile" tab on the yellow toolbar located at the top of the page. Then click "Modify Profile" to see all of your options.

A detailed explanation of each option located in the "Modify Profile" tab:


Account Settings

Username - View your username. You cannot edit your username.

Email - The email address associated with your account. For details on how to change it, view Changing Your Email Address. You can also choose whether to let other users email you by selecting or not selecting the box. The option below lets you hide your online status from other users.

Choose Password/Verify Password - You can change your password here. Put your desired password in both boxes.

Secret Question + Answer - If you loose your password, you will be given a question to answer. If it is answered correctly, you will be able to set a new password for your account. You can choose that question and the answer here. In the first box, insert a question that only YOU know the answer to. In the second, insert the answer.

Current Password - For security purposes, your current password is required to make any changes to your account. Type it here before moving on.

After you are done with customizing your settings, click "Change profile" to save your changes!
