Post New Profile Fields!

We've added two new profile fields which all members choose to fill out -- or not -- to share with the rest of us.

1. Favorite McCaffrey Series or Book or Character
Since we're a board that's all about Anne, we thought it'd make sense for everyone to be able to share what their favorite AMC writing, be it a single book, a whole series, or one particular character.

2. Currently Reading
We know most everyone here loves to read in general, so we thought you might like to share what book you're currently read -- or have just finished. Perhaps we'll learn of a new book or author to try based on your reading list!

These two new fields (along with the recently added Gender) will show next to every post you make, should you choose to fill them out in your profile.

To fill them out, Go to "Edit Profile" within the User CP (link at left in top nav bar).

You may also notice we've chosen to remove Post Count from displaying with every post you make. The system is still counting posts -- which determine your title and rank, and you can find your count or others' by viewing profiles or the member list. We've done this to de-emphasize post counts as a statistic, as we don't hink the exact number is that important.

Have any feedback on these changes? Share it in the Info Desk!
