There are seven pieces of information that are editable using the edit profile button, as stated in the previous parts of the guide: Edit your Profile. This part is for your information.
The dreamer title is the bit of information displayed at the top of your posts. It has a set of defaults which is based on your Dreams Count, which is calculated from how many:
- Posts you've made.
- Topics you've opened.
- Images you've uploaded.
- Statuses you've made.
- Comments you've made.
- Articles you've written.
- Reviews you've left.
- So on.
The defaults are currently:
|Just Started Dreamin'||1|
You can, of course, completely override this with whatever you like, within reason (it has to be compliant with the Terms of Service).
This is where you can input your birthday, but under normal circumstances you shouldn't need to edit this. Please be advised; the staff to frequently spot check profiles to check that the date of birth of any given member shows that they are over 18 years old. If you have a date of birth that makes you under 18 years old, regardless of what it should be or otherwise, you could face a permanent ban under Section 8, Paragraph 1 of the Terms of Service; of which appealing against is impossible. So be sure to enter the correct information; you have been warned.
Enable Status Updates
This is checked by default, but if you turn it off, you will not be able to make status updates. Others also won't be able to post on your wall.
The Steam ID inserts snips of your Steam Profile into your EcchiDreams profile. This is useful for Dreamers who are gamers, and/or like talking about games in the Video Games forums or PC Gaming related clubs. It allows other dreamers to easily find you on Steam or locate what games you play and so on, although it's considered polite to message the person you're going to add over EcchiDreams first, to let them know you're adding them on Steam, or asking if you can, so they know who you are before accepting/declining the request.
You can select what you are or what you identify as: either Male, Female, or Blank (if you don't wish to give out that information or if it's 'neither of the two'). Please save yourself some time and don't bother demanding us to add any given made up gender to this list, it won't happen. You can put it in the about me section on your profile.
You can select your sexuality here, as either; Heterosexual, Homosexual, Bi-Sexual, Bi-Curious, Pansexual, Asexual, Other, or refuse to disclose via 'Undisclosed'. Please save yourself some time and don't bother demanding us to add any given made up sexual orientation to this list, it also won't happen. You can put it in the about me section on your profile.
The 'About Me' Page is where you can go into detail about you as a person, and it gives you a fully featured Text Editor that allows you to add pictures, colour and format your text, and even embed topics and other things from various places, within the about me page. We recommend putting a link to your Roleplayer Preferences sheet into this area, like in the signature, to advertise your roleplayer preferences, as well as any clubs you run, and whatever else you want to as well. You can even embed YouTube videos and such as 'Favourite Songs' and the like. You're pretty much only limited by the Terms of Service here, and if you have information that we don't account for (like the Gender and Sexuality one, above) you're more than welcome to add it here.
