Some Questions and Answers

Why the Change?
The current profiles were designed before our featured athlete Gwinny was even competing. They slow down the site and don’t include all of our latest features that will help better promote you and connect you with brands and other members.

Will I have access to my old profile?
Yes. We will provide a link for you and visitors to your profile to access for a limited time.

What can I do to make it my own?
First, post some of your most recent photos & videos with the new media uploader (click on Post Something). Upload as many photos as you want and import your videos from YouTube and Vimeo. Second, add a background image – download our Photoshop Template to check the specs. If you’re a Premium member you can add a custom header graphic and a custom page to put whatever you want on.
