Why make a profile?

Why not!

Profiles help us connect with each other. You can reveal as little or as much as you want, but if we're going to try building some community, it's more fun if we know a little bit about each other.

Also, the profiles are now searchable! Looking for people who share a common interest or who live in your area? Use the "Search" link in the main menu bar on the top of the page and select the "User Profiles" tab.

Need info on how to fill in your profile? Click here.

Profiles are always evolving, so check your "My account" area now and then to see if new fields have been added. And if there is info you'd like to see included in the profiles, please drop us a note and let us know!

How this site works

This site works like a combination of a blog and a more formal web site. The "front page" (what you get when you click on "The Public Square" or the header image) will always, in the center column, list the newest content on the site.

Content comes in a variety of forms. There are member blogs, forums, polls, news stories, announcements, reviews, calls for action, and resource lists. (If there are new kinds of content you're interested in, let us know!)

The menus at the top of the page will help you navigate through the site. Several of the main menu items have submenus. This page, for example, comes under the Welcome! menu because it is a page that will be useful mostly to people just joining in for the first time.

I'd like to link to my blog. Is there a way I can submit a link?

I have a blog that deals with issues of sexuality. Do you have a blogroll or a list of links that I can list my blog on? Is there a way to submit links to your site?

Creating a new Take Action! item

The "Take Action!" items are created using the "Book" module of Drupal. Registered users can create "Take Action" items by doing the following:
  1. Click on "Take Action!"
  2. Scroll down and click on "Add child page"
  3. Give your item a descriptive title - the title is all that will show up in the "contents" list on the "Take Action!" page.
  4. Leave the Parent item set to "Take Action!"
  5. Enter any background info, instructions and links in the text block marked "body."
  6. Click Submit!
