suggestion // change "interests" to "bio" or "tagline" [14+]

Postby pyrozella » Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:59 am

    hello! i have a suggestion for the site. this is about the user pages.
    i feel like it would be more convenient and improve the quality of gameplay if the little "interests" section in the user profile page could be changed to something else, such as "introduction" or "tagline."
    i'm suggesting this because users would be able to explain more about themselves if they had a space to write it in, rather than just putting their interests. heck, you could maybe even just stick a little quote in there or something like i did.
    see, back when i first joined i thought that it did say intro, and so wrote a BIG bio about myself, only to click on my page and do a double take when it said "Interests: Hi! my name is... (what?)" it was kind of disappointing honestly.
    and yeah i know a few negative things are that this could be seen as redundant or pointless, but it's just an easy quick change. nothing big like adding descriptions to pets or groups ;)
    so yeah. feel free to pm me with any questions about this.

ive always wanted this! its so weird putting something not an interest in the interests section but its all we have for a "bio" so you dont really get much of a choice.

Support!
I think it would be nice to have it changed to a simple "about" since that's what the majority of people seem to put there anyways.
It would be nice to have a small space for an introduction and pronouns etc. apart from stamps or signature.

If the word "interests" was specifically chosen to discurage new and/or young users from sharing personal information it doesn't seem to be effective, since most players use the space as a bio anyways. The usual "dont share personal info" disclaimer should be sufficient, i think.

Hi! My name is gallifrey falls. I'm in
my first year of college currently, so
if I'm slow to respond to any trades
or pms that's probably the reason!
I love writing, though it's all been
fanfiction so far. I'd like to do my
own stuff eventually! My fav shows
are Stranger Things, Doctor Who,
The Good Place, Game of Thrones
and Psych. PM me about anything!
━━━━━━━━━━━━

will always
fill my heart
