Hi Everyone,

As part of our service to you, we plan in the future to contact members whose profiles are not complete with respect to the fields marked "required". This includes the section on contact data.

We know that some of you choose not to enter certain information, and you are protected in this by our privacy policy. Therefore, it will be helpful to us if you can take a moment to indicate that you prefer not to enter certain forms of contact data (phone number, etc.). By doing that, you indicate to us that we should not send email reminders, or otherwise contact you, to request that you complete such data.

To be clear, the contact data section of the profile will be considered complete (for the purposes of outsourcing screening and the current promotion) if you either (1) enter each required item, or (2) indicate that you do not intend to enter it.

I am not sure whether the above is clear. Please have a look at contact data section of the revised profile updater and I think you will understand. (If it is not clear enough, feedback would be appreciated.)

Best Regards,
Colin

SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE Oct 12, 2006

Hi Colin,

Something is not working properly here. My profile was complete. I didn`t make any changes, but address and phone numbers have dissapeared and there is a sign now saying I am not elegible to win the trip for that reason.

So, I included all that personal information again, but the system didn`t recognize it. I tried several times until it was ok.

But now my KEY WORDS are missing. I didn`t deleted them. And I don`t remember all of them at this time.

Could you look into that, please? And make sure you kill the bug, if there is any?

Thanks in advance.

Walter

Same problem Oct 12, 2006

I have found exactly the same problems, as described above by Walter, and lost all my keywords too.

I would advise to not use the new version until Colin has fixed it.
I have sent an urgent message to Colin already, he should be on the issue soon.


bye
Gianfranco

Me too! Oct 13, 2006

Both my contact info and keywords disappeared (I already re-entered them in my traditional profile checker and placed a support ticket).

At least I know I'm not the only one

One additional note: sort order of fields of expertise is now respected in the new profile display Oct 13, 2006

Colin will address the disappearing data problem tomorrow. In the meantime, I want to let you all know that it is now possible to sort fields of expertise so that they will be displayed in your preferred order in the new profiles.
