|Required & Incorrect Entries|
|You cannot save changes to your profile until Required entries are completed and errors are corrected.
Few, but some, entries are required. They are grouped under "Personal".
The boxes for both Required entries and errors appear like the heading above: Your text on a gold background.
Complete and/or correct those entries and press "Update" again.
If successful, your public profile displays.
|About the Emergency Contact|
|People change email service providers and move without updating their on-line profiles. Please supply someone we can contact if your email or snail mail don't reach you. Note: You can re-use your own information, if ABSOLUTELY necessary, but please consider an alternative.|
|Troubleshooting & FAQ|
|"I clicked "Update" but nothing happened."
See "Required and Incorrect Entries" above. You probably need to make an entry or correction. Check "Personal", then the other tabs for boxes that display the text on a gold background.
|"I pressed <Enter> and the form disappeared and I was back at my public profile."
<Enter> in a web form is the command to submit the form, or to go to the next line.
|If your box has only one line, an <Enter> means, "I'm done. Process what I entered."|
|If your box has multiple lines, an <Enter> moves you down one line.|
|Get into the habit of using <Tab> to move from box to box. [Sorry, we didn't make that rule.]|
