    OH. Control Panel.

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Myst, Jul 11, 2007.

    Only just now did I click on UserCP and find out that I can track reputation points and finally set my gender.

    ......I'm actually impressed by my ignorance.


    Did the rest of you realize it's location straightaway?

    Not immediately, but I was directed to it within my first few weeks on the site. Although I would agree with you, it isn't ideally placed (and it isn't obvious that the CP stands for Control Pannel).

    I went there before to alter my signature and then forgot about it. I didn't realize that there are quite a lot of other options that occur there

    (for example, gender and reputation)

    And yes, I think it would be more ideal to be like, say, next to the username at the top right corner?

    That's what I was thinking. Worth suggesting to Daniel, do you think?

    Yeah I knew about it. More of a novelty than anything though.

    I only discovered its purpose within the last month too - though if you know where to look all becomes evident.

    Yeah, I think it'd be worth suggesting to Lp.

    Took me a week to figure it all out when I first joined up here.

    Just figured it out via this thread. Thanks. Not that it makes too much of a difference.

    Don't believe it took me all that long to recognize it when I did. Though I do believe it more attention could be drawn to it. Also, it could be sorted to give you better access to things.
