Help Topic: Your Settings
You can access your settings from any page by selecting "My Controls" in the box near the top right of any page.
There are several tabs along the top, each of which reveal a number of settings pages:
Change Email Address
You can use this tool to change the email address that is associated with your account.
You can use this tool to change the password that you use to log in.
You may use this area to store any notes or information that you want to keep.
This page will show you all of the attachments you have uploaded to the community and the amount of space you have left. The bar at the top shows you how much of your allocated upload space you have used. Below this is a table containing information on all of the attachments you have submitted.
If you are running out of space, you can delete some old attachments by selecting the checkbox on the right-hand side of the table for the attachments you want to delete, and then pressing the Delete Selected button at the bottom of the table.
Manage Watched Topics and Manage Watched Forums
Here you can see all of the topics and forums that you are currently subscribed to.
To change the type of notification or to unsubscribe, select the checkbox on the right-hand side of the table for the subscriptions you want to change, then select the new type from the dropdown menu at the bottom of the table, and then click with selected.
Change Profile Information
Change About Me Page
Here you can change the content of the 'about me' section on your profile.
Here you can change your signature that is displayed at the bottom of posts.
Here you can change your photo that is displayed in your profile and other areas on the community.
Manage Ignored Users
Here you can manage your ignored users. You can choose to ignore all posts from a member, block them from sending you personal messages, or both.
To add a member to your ignored list, type their name into the "Member's Name" box. As you type, suggestions will appear below the box. When you see the name of the member you want to add, click on it. Then select either or both of the checkboxes below. Selecting "Ignore Personal Conversations" will mean they cannot send you messages and their messages in group conversations will be hidden, while "Ignore posts" will hide their posts in the forums. When you are ready, click Save Changes.
Some members, such as administrators, cannot be ignored.
If you wish to stop ignoring a member, select "Remove" in the table, or to switch on or off the different types of ignoring, click the relevant link under the "Ignore Posts" or "Ignore Messages" columns.
