What is my profile bar and how do I use it?

When you view your profile page, you are able to view information and various statistics about yourself and your account, such as your age, location, real name and why you are here, provided you have filled this information out. You will also been shown how long you have been a member for, the number of deviations you have submitted and more. When others view your profile page they will also be able to see this information, so choose what you wish to display wisely!

Your profile bar is located at the top of your profile page, below your username. It looks like this:





Your profile bar contains 4 sections. Below you will find a detailed breakdown of each section.

This section shows your member type, tagline, age, sex & location, provided you have filled out each of these sections. When you click on this section more detailed information about you will be displayed.


General

 

      • Member Type - This section lists the type of member you are.



      • Your Tag Line - Your tagline is usually a simple phrase to describe yourself, however many use it for other things. Your tag line will be displayed above your profile bar, below your username



      • Your Real Name - This section allows you to list your real name to users'. Usually this is filled out when signing up. If you choose not to display your real name, you username will be shown above your age, sex & location information, instead of your name



    • Age, Sex & Location - This section allows you to list your Age, Sex and Location to others. Your age will not auto update, so you will need to change this on your own as you age
