[Guide] Editing Your Ingame Profile
The Profile Editing Guide

[Image: threadsupport.png]

Hey there Omega, I saw this thread and it inspired me to make a guide on how to edit your profile!
This guide is for the ingame profile and not the forum profile.

This guide is divided in paragraphs, so you can read just what you need to know.

Exclamation IMPORTANT: Never use the symbol "&" on your profile, it deletes that and everything underneath it after saving! Exclamation

1 - The basics
1.1 -How do I edit my profile?
1.2 - A few standard codes you may need to know

2 - How do I start?
2.1 - What to put on your profile
2.2 - What NOT to put on your profile
2.3 - Positioning your profile content

3 - Using Images
3.1 - Finding Images
3.2 - Making Images
3.3 - A few tips for using images


1 - The basics

If you don't really know much, this would be useful to read this section.
1.1 -How do I edit my profile?

If this is your first time editing your profile, this is what you do:
To edit your name, age, location and gender, go to user panel > user panel, fill in, and save
Here you can also edit your options, and change your e-mail / password

To edit your actual profile, go to your player info page (click your name at the top-right, or go to user panel > player info) and click » Edit profile

Don't forget to save afterwards.

1.2 - A few standard codes you may need to know
To do a good job at editing, you'll need some codes of course, here are some:
Note: of course, don't use { and }
Code:
[img]{Image url Here}[/img]
This code should explain itself, It shows the image that is inherited within the tags.

Example: [Image: NSsignature3.png]

Code:
[color=#{Color Code Here}]{Text Here}[/color]
This changes your font color, the color codes can be generated here
you can also use the names of some standard colors for color code (remove the #) like red, blue, green, yellow etc.

Example: Message me in Dutch or proper English please!

Code:
[size=10]Message here[/size]
Changes the size on profile, experiment a little with the "10"

Example: Message here

Code:
[b]bold[/b] [u]underlinded[/u] [i]itallics[/i] [s]strike[/s]

Ends up like: bold underlinded itallics strike

Code:
[url=http://example.com]this[/url]
will end up like this
note: don't forget http://

2 - How do I start?

Some important (first) steps to editing your profile.

2.1 - What to put on your profile

Some of you may have no idea of what to put on their profile, here are some things other people display on their profiles:

Interests - Some people write about what they like, or post images of anime they like etcetera
Ingame Goals - People post their goals in game, like 100k trainerpoints, a full lv100 team or beating all gyms.
Dream Team - People post images of their dream team, sometimes nothing which they have, and which they don't.

Trainercards - People post their trainercards (check section 3.1 and 3.2)

Friends on or outside omega - People list people that are important or special to them.

Funny quotes - People quote famous people, friends, or just anyone.

Random images - Some people are random ^^

Notes to visitors - some (experienced) players for example post that they don't give away stong pokémon, accept friend requests or answers to certain questions they get asked often.

2.2 - What NOT to put on your profile

What you definitely should NOT put on your profile is:

Your e-mail address, phone number or other private information - if you want people to be able to contact you, give them this information by pm, but be careful.

Inappropriate content - Content that is not appropriate for everyone, including jokes about other races, hate messages to certain people, sexual images, extreme violence etc.

Advertisements - Do NOT use your profile to advertise, this is a game, not a free advertisement site.

2.3 - Positioning your profile content

This may seem stupid, but it's actually a very important aspect of your profile.
Important stuff like notes to your visitors should come first, some people are lazy, so make sure they read what you actually think is important to read first.

If you want the right side of your profile hidden, either use a banner that is wide enough the left on, or place the image below on the left side, and leave the right empty.
Code:
[img]http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/489/profilespacer.png[/img]
Result:

3 - Using Images
3.1 - Finding Images

If you want to use images, you need some images first.
You can find some by going to the internet, and search for them at google.
A few places to find images are:
http://pldh.net/dex/sprites/{pokemonname here} - Pokemon Sprites
User panel > signature - official pokémon omega trainercard
http://www.mapletowers.com/trainercards/ugenerator.php - Good trainer card generator

3.2 - Making Images

You could also just make your own images, like I do.
I prefer using photoshop for it, but you can also use paint or similar programs

3.3 - A few tips for using images

- Make sure they're not too wide, it'll mess up the site layout
- Don't use tons of images, it'll take ages to load your profile, and people may just click it away before it's done.
- Don't use epic ugly images, it may scare people off
(this includes images of justin bieber -_-)



I hope this guide was useful, if I made any mistakes, or you know something to add, make sure to let me know.

RE: [Guide] Editing Your Ingame Profile
2 things to add-

1. When you want to use colour text you can just type the word 'red' instead of '#code'

2. Url links can be used in game profiles, check my profile for proof Smile

Apart from those things, great thread! Wink
