What is the Profile page?
Every member has a publicly viewable profile page. This page includes information provided by the member, either during the registration process or later on via the account pages.
Whenever you see a member's name, clicking on it will usually show a pop-up panel showing their details in brief. From here you can view their public profile.
When logged in, you can also view your own public via the menu activated when clicking on your username shown in the header at the top of the page.
What's on the Profile page?
The public profile lists information about the member under various tabs such as recent activity and posts. In addition there may be information about the bookmarks which the member has publicly shared, the competitions they have entered, the showcases they have created and their trading statistics.
When logged in to AVForums, you can navigate to /account/privacy

What are Profile Posts?
Profile posts are messages posted on a member's profile. They are a method of sending a public message to a particular member and are viewable by everyone who has access to the forum. Members have control over which messages appear on their profiles and can use the Report link to alert moderators to any inappropriate messages posted there.
