New custom profile option

Postby MUTU » Thu May 12, 2011 4:04 pm

I did a new change to the forum and wish to test it. I added a custom profile dropdown called "Where did you find out about us?"
It is a required field and is needed to register a new account from now on, but existing users can edit their profile and put it in, and I would appreciate it if some of you do so, as I need to test that it's working. This field should only show up for administrators and moderators, so normal users won't be able to see it.

As such, the point of this is to help me identify where my efforts are best spent, seeing where the new users are coming from and putting in more energy there...

Anyway, to test this change, log in (duh!), click on "User Control Panel" at the top left corner of the website, then click on the "Profile" tab and you should see the new dropdown. Thanks!

I have changed how it works now. It is called "Referred by" and the first entry is "Where did you find out about us?" and that cannot be chosen, you need to select something else. Can you please try again?

Ah, I thought I would see it to be able to fill out, but I won't be able to see what others chose. It was a misunderstanding then :)

I explained it here: announces/official-forum-changes-thread-t4311-525.html#p115948
But to specifically answer your question, before virtually everyone was coming from Google searches and now we have other sources, most notably Facebook and Twitter.
