Suggestion for Profile

Discussion in 'Bugs, Glitches and Miscellaneous Forum Problems' started by gregnola, Jul 6, 2005.

  1. Jeff,

    Thanks for the GREAT site.
    I have a suggestion for an item to add to a user's profile. How about a field that allows you to put the type of smoker you use.

    That way, if someone has a question about a certain type of smoker they can direct a post toward a user with that type of smoker.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks again and I enjoy the new site!

    I read this old post and whole heartedly agree that identifying what someone is cooking on is paramount to understanding someone's question, and providing sound advice.

    The simplest solution I can think of is to include a brief description of one's arsenal in your signature, this is an idea borrowed from another forum, but it is quite effective.

    There is a way to add a custom field to the profile section.. that way you could go to the "MEMBERLIST" and sort by "TYPE OF SMOKER"

    I have obviously not gotten around to doing this yet but thanks for the reminder. I will try to schedule some time in for getting this done. I think it would be an excellent thing.

    Adding it to the signature is also a great idea..

    Hey Boss-just a thought on that Equipment used field-You might want to make it so those of us that use more than one type of smoker can list it. For example I use a GOSM and an ECB- just my $.02.
