Editing Profiles


This guide will break down, in detail, how to fill out your profiles.



Account Switcher

How staff and other members can see which characters are played by which member. This is required! It also allows you to switch between accounts without having to log in each time. 

Step by step guide:
  1. While logged into your IC ACCOUNT, go to your User CP.
  2. In the menu on the left side, choose "Account Switcher."
  3. Choose the option that says "Attach current account to a user."
  4. Enter the username and password for your OOC account, then click "Attach."
  5. You should now see your OOC account listed in the site sidebar. All you have to do is click on the account to switch to it - no more logging in!
  6. Please ensure your OOC account is listed as the Master Account!

OOC Name

The alias that you go by on Novus. Must be plain text. No HTML coding or symbols.


OOC Account ID

The account ID for your OOC profile. Go to your OOC profile. The account ID is the very last number when you look at your OOC profile's URL. For instance, Elkayell's OOC profile URL is "http://novus-rpg.net/member.php?action=profile&uid=3" — based on this, her account ID is 3 (not 03 or three).


OOC Blurb

A short paragraph about you, the role-player. Do not use any HTML coding.


Gender & Pronouns

Your character's preferred gender and associated pronouns. This is not limited to their biological sex. Must be formatted like this: Gender [Pronouns]. Possible variations include Female [She/Her/Hers], Male [He/Him/His], Gender Fluid [They/Them/Theirs], and more.


Height

Your character's height, in the unit of hands. Must be formatted like this: ## hh (for example, 15.3 hh). Heights are restricted to between 12 hands and 21 hands. Please make sure you choose a height that does not deviate too far from your character's breeds.


Date of Birth

Your date of birth (not your character's date of birth). This will not be displayed anywhere but in your User CP.


Date of Birth Privacy

How you'd like to display your date of birth. This field is irrelevant, but is a default profile field from MyBB. If you wish to fill it out, there are three options: Display Age and Date of Birth, Hide Age and Date of Birth, and Display Only Age. No matter what you choose here, your date of of birth will not be displayed anywhere but in your User CP.


Log Link

Enter the URL to your Log, if you have any. This field should only be the URL. Once this field is populated, a link to your Log will display whenever you hover over "Portal" in the navigation pane, giving you a quick and easy way to get to it.


Plotter Link

Enter the URL to your Plotting thread, if you have any. This field should only be the URL. Once this field is populated, a link to your Plotter will display whenever you hover over "Portal" in the navigation pane, giving you a quick and easy way to get to it.


Wishlist

Enter the URL to your Wishlist, if you have any. This field should only be the URL. Once this field is populated, a link to your Wishlist will display whenever you hover over "Portal" in the navigation pane, giving you a quick and easy way to get to it.


Orientation

Your character's orientation. Possibilities include Heterosexual, Homosexual, Bisexual, Asexual, Demisexual, and more.


Breed

Your character's closest breed(s), with the strongest influence being first. An example would be: 'Arabian x Morgan', where the character looks more like an Arabian than a Morgan. If there are more than two breeds, please format like this: Arabian X , or Morgan X.


Postbit Bar URL

An image to use as your postbit header background (as seen at the top of this post). When hovered over, it will display the user's information. The image dimensions must be 1200 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. The image can be anything you want (with the exception of humans, unless it is for your OOC account). We highly recommend straying away from including any text on the image, as they dynamically resize according to each individual member's monitor size.


Postbit Phrase

A short phrase (75 characters or less) that will appear beneath your postbit image.


Reference Image URL

A reference image for your character to give the reader a visual aid whenever they look at your character's profile. The image width can be a maximum of 1024 pixels.


Appearance

Your character's appearance. This must be a minimum of 200 words, regardless of whether or not you have a reference image. Please refer to the Character Rules for guidelines on acceptable character designs. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Personality

Your character's personality. Must include at least 6 positive and 4 negative traits. This must be a minimum of 300 words, excluding the list of positive and negative traits. Please refer to the Character Rules for more information on what we expect for character personalities. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


History

Your character's history. This must be a minimum of 400 words. Please refer to the Character Rules for more information on what we expect for character histories. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Magic

If you have purchased the Magic item for your character, fill out this section with your character's magic ladder. Please refer to the Magic page of the Guidebook for more information on our Magic system. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Bonded

If you have purchased one of the Bonded items for your character, fill out this section with information on your character's bonded. This should include a brief personality and physical description. Please refer to the Bondeds page of the Guidebook for more information on our animal companions. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Armor, Outfit & Accessories

All characters are allowed up to three small accessories for free. This includes hairbands (multiple hairbands count as one accessory), bracelets, necklaces, and more. If you have free accessories or you've purchased an Outfit or Armor, fill out this section with a description of the items. The free small accessories must be listed for your character's application to be accepted. You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Other

Fill out this section with any other information you want to include about your character. Many members use this section to keep track of on-site activity, relationships, poems or lyrics, or other things. There are no restrictions here! You are allowed to use HTML coding here.


Custom CSS

If you'd like to customize the fonts, colors, and images of your profile, enter the CSS here to do so. Please see this post for more information on how to do so. Please remember that fully customized profiles are not allowed; the structure of our profiles must remain intact.
