Minimum Character Count in the About Me Form Field is 160, maximum around 7,600. You could use a Text Editor such as Microsoft Word to poll the Statistics on Character Count.

Make sure you have no E-Mail Addresses, Weblinks, etc.

Also, do not use the @ Symbol in both the Forums or in your Profile.

Delete your Cookies, log-back on and re-set your personal Infos here:

Edit Registration ... at the Top of the Page:

You can change your Gender and Birthday within 2 weeks of signing up.
After that it is assumed to be correct and can't be changed.


(Close your Browser. Sometimes a Re-boot wouldn't hurt either.)

* ... make sure your Password is correct.


Password* Enter Password Again*


You can only change the Gender or Birthday within 2 Weeks of Profile Creation.
(To prevent Users by-passing other Peoples Mail Setting Restrictions on the fly.)

Delete your Profile FIRST and create another one!

I just joined and noticed my profile has me down as a man and I tried to change it to woman but when I change it, it wont take it and changes it back to male. So what is the problem?

Why do some profiles show "area" (which means "country") while others don't? I go to the registration page and change my country to Canada, but - upon viewing my profile - area/country is not indicated. I noticed that some Canadian profiles do contain country while others don't. I do a lot of international "talk/email". It is important that the person that I am exchanging emails with knows what country I am from. Suggestions?

I tried several combinations and the best way to indicate you are from Canada is to indicate it in the city name. In my case Vancouver (Canada) the province will be listed beside the city name so it will display to users like this:

City Vancouver (Canada) British Columbia

Here are some examples of profiles that are displayed properly:

http://www.plentyoffish.com/member2311390.htm
http://www.plentyoffish.com/member2605589.htm
http://www.plentyoffish.com/member1598232.htm

They show Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Thanks for your help.

Information in profiles is formatted differently depending on whether they have a picture or not. Profiles without pictures have the extra "Area" field.

Edit your profile and put Vancouver or a city name in the city field. You currently have Canada: - British Columbia in the city field.

I think it goes to a blue link when there are more then 20 other users with the same city name entered in the system.

Thanks for the info I have finally read the forums and discovered why my age can not be ammended.

I do not wish to change my age on the fly - I am 45 not 35

My friends helped me put this in the site and I am tryn to learn. But would prefer if it was correct. I am really 45 could someone correct this for me.

I have ammended profile to tell people my correct age to but feel that it should be corrected in my registration.

Any help here for this??
Thanks in advance for your consideration.

I guess this is to keep people from changing their b-days just so they are able to contact someone who has age restrictions?

Sherl,

Just saw your post. Go to "Mail Settings" The first or Gender box has 3 options. Click the pull down menu to change your selection. The options are:
"Anyone"
"Male"
"Female"

Gender cannot be changed after 14 Days of new Account Creation.

To change it, you have to delete your Profile and create another one.
It cannot be reset.

Your system has my birth year as 1949. I was born in 1951. The information is incorrect and I want it corrected. I have tried several times. Change it or allow me to mak the change or I will delete everything.

If you do not read Threads or the Page where you are trying to change your Registration Settings, there is no Hope for you. / Ticketoride
