Profile Field Walkthrough

Having trouble understanding all of the options when editing your profiles?  Here's a handy breakdown of what each field is used for! They are listed in the order shown when editing your User CP.

Account Type

Select Player for OOC accounts, and Character for character accounts. This will affect how your profile will look when others view it.

OOC Account Number

Numeric digits only! Go to your OOC profile and highlight the last numbers of the URL. For example, the URL to Gull's profile ends with "&uid=1" so she would use 1.  If thisis your OOC profile, simply enter 0.

OOC Name

Your out of character name (what you want others to know you by), formatted in plain text.

Location

Your general location (to help other members understand timezones and when you might be online). Generalized locations such as "Australia" or "Central U.S." are perfectly acceptable.




Date of Birth

Required to remain COPPA-compliant. Will not be displayed anywhere on site.

Date of Birth Privacy

No matter which option you select here, your birthday will remain private. If you choose to share your age, it will show up on the bottom of the home page whenever your birthday passes.

Your Website URL

URL to your website (Facebook, DeviantArt, your own RP site, etc). Is not displayed anywhere on site (we just couldn't remove it from the profile fields).

all fields listed below are used for character profiles only

Name

Your character's full name.

Nickname(s)

Your character's nickname(s), if they have any.

Species

Select your character's species. Do not fill this out on your OOC profile - it will make the census inaccurate!

Class

Select your character's class. Be sure to check the guidebook to understand which classes go with which species, and which classes are rare (which must be bought or won).

Profession

Your character's profession. It can be anything as long as it makes sense in a medieval era. Dragons have very specific "roles" to choose from. See the guidebook for more information.

Birthplace

Which region your character was born in. This is not which region your character lives in. Make sure your character's features line up with what is typically found in each region - see the guidebook for more information.

Birth Season

The season your character was born in. Spretta is spring, sumra is summer, falla is fall, and ventra is winter.
