There are a number of settings which you can use to customise how you appear to other users on the service, as well as how the service is set out for you. The profile page lets you customise these.
The first thing on this settings page is the ability to change how your profile is displayed to other users on the site. You're able to change your profile avatar, username and description.
To change your avatar, click or tap on your avatar at the top of the page. This will open a file picker for you to select a new image. We accept PNG, JPEG and GIF file formats. Please note, GIFs with transparency may not appear correctly once uploaded, please choose an alternative image.
To change your username, you can click into the box and update it to what you'd like your new username to be. Usernames have to be unique, and if you pick a name which isn't available you'll be notified of this. Additionally, you can only change your username every 7 days, so choose wisely.
Finally, you can change the description which displays on your profile. Unlike your username, this can be changed at any time, and will display on your profile page, as well as the embed which appears if you share your profile link to people on other platforms such as Discord.
The content you choose to use as your avatar, your username and your description must follow our rules. Any content which isn't acceptable will be removed by a staff member, and your account may be banned.
There are a number of useful options here to customise your experience.
You can also choose what language the site is in on this page. Select a language from the dropdown and press "Save".
Different languages are implemented by our community, so if you don't see your language supported, feel free to help translate it. Also, if you believe there is a mistake in any translations you can make a merge request to correct it in our translations repository.
Similar to the language options, you can choose what time zone and time format will be used across the site, and in your upload preferences. First, select a country and then the time zone which matches yours, then press "Save".
The time zone used here is also used in the placeholders available within your embed settings. You can find more info about your upload preferences and the placeholders available here.
