From here you have three options: Public, Edit, and Change Avatar.

  • Public: Shows you the Base, if you click on the user, it will display the groups they belong to do so.
  • Edit: This allows you to change the name associated with the account. When you change this, it will update the name the public will see.
  • Change Avatar: This tab gives you the ability to upload a picture to use as an avatar. If there’s a Gravatar associated with your email address it will use that.

The next tab that is important is the Settings tab. The general settings allows you to update the password and email address associated with your profile. The notification settings allow you to decide what you are notified about.
