6. Main Profile Tabs:  In the Edit Profile form, if you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll see two large text editor fields named About Me and My Creations. They're in the section titled Main Profile tabs. If you add any information into these, it will create new corresponding tabs in your main profile.

2. Overview & Other Settings:  You'll be taken to your account's Settings page. On the initial tab which is called Overview, you can edit your display name, your email address and your password. You can see what percentage of your account setup you've completed here too. There's also a section box on the right side titled Other Settings which we'll cover in steps 8-10.

3. Navigating the Settings Page:  You can navigate Settings using the stacked list of tab titles with icons in the box on the left hand side. The starting tab is Overview, and below that the 2nd and 3rd tabs are Email Address and Password. These tabs are where you're taken when you click the corresponding options in the Overview tab, however these provide more detail about their respective options. This also applies to the 6th tab Display Name. The rest of the tabs in that list are unique.

4. Security and Privacy (Online Status):  The Security and Privacy tab is there for you to control whether or not you're visible to other members when you're browsing the forums. If you set "Hide My Online Status" to on, your name will not appear in lists like Online Users in the nav bar, or Online Members at the bottom of the main page. You'll be asked to re-enter your password before changing this.

5. Recently Used Devices:  If you suspect your account has been compromised (hacked) the Recently Used Devices tab is one way to check. It provides a list of all devices that have logged into your account in the last 3 months. If you click the "See anything you don't recognize?" option at the top it will prompt you to change your password, however if this is the case, we also recommend setting up a Trouble Ticket with staff by clicking the Report to Staff button at the bottom of any page.

6. Content View Behavior:  The Display Names tab was already covered in step 2, so the next tab down is Content View Behavior. This allows you to control what happens when you click on a topic in the forum. Do you want it to take you to the first post on the thread? Or to the most recent comment? Or to the most recent thing you haven't read yet? Choose that setting here.

7. Signatures:  The last tab is Signatures, and signatures are the custom content you will see at the bottom of all of a given members posts. This tab is where you can create your own, but before you do make sure you check the Guidelines, because there are rules regarding the size and content of these. You can also choose to ignore all signatures on the forum including your own using the toggle titled "View signatures?".

8. Other Settings - Notification Settings:  As mentioned in step 2, the Other Settings menu on the right hand side in the Overview tab has 3 options, the first of which is Notification Settings. Clicking this brings you to a very self explanatory menu that allows you to control how you're notified when content is posted on the site.

9. Other Settings - Edit Profile:  The second option in Other Settings is Edit Profile. Clicking this brings up the same form that was already covered in steps 5-6 of the PUBLIC PROFILE section above this section. Refer to that for more details.

10. Other Settings - Ignored Users:  This is exactly what it sounds like, the good ol' block a motherfucker option. A lot of times this is the quickest and easiest way to solve a problem. If you click on this tab you'll be brought to a very simple menu that allows you to input the name of the member you want to block, and filter through members you've previously blocked.
