How to build a profile page

Lets start off with – the CANCEL button is your friend. If you completely mess up use CANCEL.
Next in our excitement is – I highly recommend typing out everything you want in a document or where ever and using copy paste so you don’t have to sit with your open profile for 80 hours trying to remember how to spell … anything.

On the left sidebar there is a box and a button which states ADD A PROFILE
Type in the name of the page you wish – for example: Imogene Britchestompers – and hit the ADD A PROFILE button. (PLEASE NOTE: do not put any punctuation in the page title.)

This is what you will see

TITLE = the name of the profile page – this should be the name of your character

BACKGROUND = the picture along the edges of the page. These images are stored on the Backgrounds page and the program will allow you to merely type in the name of the file not the filename with extension. The following files are available
AssmiteBack
BrujahBack
FollowersofSetBack
GangrelBack
GargoyleBack
GiovanniBack
goldwall (this is on Clairene’s page)
Ice2 (this is on M.Alice Hecht’s page)
LasombraBack
MalkavianBack
NosferatuBack
OldBrick (this is on everyones page that I have no info for)
RavnosBack
ToreadorBack
TremereBack
VentrueBack

If none of these fit what you want you may find the Backgrounds page under LIST ALL PAGES which is located on the left side bar. Click on the file tab and upload your photo using the - Upload a file from your computer – located at the bottom of the file list. Keep in mind the photos should be small. Preferably around 50 kB give or take and jpg (lower case) ONLY. Do not delete any file or rename any file in the Backgrounds page.

HEADER = a picture which will appear in the upper left box. You may click on the SELECT FILE button and upload your photo from your computer. Please keep them small and only jpg format. Recommended size is around 480 x 253 pixels.

PHOTO = a picture which will appear centered at the top of the page. You may click on the SELECT FILE button and upload your photo from your computer. Please keep them small and only jpg format. Recommended size is around 270 x 270 pixels.

HISTORY = this is where you type in stuff that you want publicly known about your character. It will appear in a box to the right of the Header photo. You may format this with wiki syntax available by clicking the HELP tab at the very bottom of the wiki site. It is under Documentation pages – Wiki syntax.

FACTS in BRIEF = this is where you type in short sentences about publicly known stuff or rumors about your character. It will appear underneath the HEADER and HISTORY boxes. You may format this with wiki syntax available by clicking the HELP tab at the very bottom of the wiki site. It is under Documentation pages – Wiki syntax. I recommend adding a bullet to the front of each sentence which is done by typing an asterisk in front of the first word.
You may also add a youtube link here. This is done by inserting the following:

[[embedvideo]]<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/XXXX" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>[[/embedvideo]]

Where XXXX is the filename of the youtube video

CLAN = your characters Clan. Click on the arrow and click on the appropriate clan.

GENERATION = your characters generation. Click in the circle of your characters appropriate generation category.

SECT = your characters sect. Click in the circle of your characters appropriate sect category. (oh and I did remember to add anarch in)

POSITION = if your character holds a position within the sect. Type in the position. If you are merely Accepted you are a Resident of Seattle. If you are not Accepted you are a Hopeful Resident.

PLAYER = Your name. Type in your first real name and last initial. If you so choose, you may type the whole real name – not recommended.

SITUATION = If your character is still walkin’ the earth. Click in the circle of Existing if your character is. Click in the circle Past if your character has kakked their final death.

Click the Cancel button to cancel and the save button to save.

At the top of the page click on the TAGS tab. Type in the appropriate tags at the bottom. Please do not add any new tags. If you need a new tag please contact the site owner. Current tags are (note-all lower case)
anarch ancillae assamite brujah cacophony caitiff camarilla court (not for Primogen or Harpy) elder gangrel gargoyle giovanni harpy independent lasombra malkavian neonate nosferatu past (for residents of Seattle prior to 2013 who are no longer in existence or whose current whereabouts are unknown) primogen prince ravnos setite setting (for history profiles) toreador tremere venture

Once you have saved your profile page, please, go to the Contact page located in the Links of import box on the Welcome page and send a message to the site owner with the name of the profile page. That way I can update the Welcome Page menu. If you are playing in the Seattle game but your CHARACTER is not a resident or hopeful resident of Seattle, please mention that so I can create a new menu spot for your character.

In the future you may edit your profile by going to the profile page and hitting the EDIT tab. If you have any problems go to the Contact page located in the Links of import box on the Welcome page and send a message to the site owner. I will help as soon as I am able.

If you would like to create a page that does not follow the profile you may do so by typing the name of the page in the box on the left side margin and clicking the NEW PAGE button. Once you have saved your page please contact the site manager so I can add it to the menu on the Welcome Page.
