empty 'About me'

Having an empty 'About me' block in your profile will actually display the following info: "Tom is a game developer registered on the Scirra website."

I'm sure everyone would love being Tom, but unfortunately we can't...

Another little issue: I can't seem to find a way to edit the website address in my profile.

There's another issue with website address in profiles-
Those who have the website address in their profile, if you click on the address, it attempts to open the site but the colon (:) after http// is always missing(even if the user entered the correct address in their profile)

Hate to be a pain, but defaulting it to saying everyone's a game developer is probably not accurate either, albeit more accurate than saying they are tom. I think some people are developing apps, or are just artists here supporting their developer partners.   Not a big deal, just saying, something like 'whomever is a registered user at scirra', or even better:just not displaying that section at all might be better?lucid2011-06-30 14:15:13

Not a pain at all, I welcome all discussion!

I've chosen to go with this for strategic reasons (SEO, the site becomes more associated with the keywords 'Game' and 'Developer'), although I understand the inaccuracy might be confusing. I'll think about it some more.

Is it (or will be), searchable from the outside,
e.g. http://www.scirra.com/Noga ?

You mean I'm not Tom? and I'm not a game developer? I wonder if I should continue with my past life regression sessions!

Noga, yes, your profile will be publicly viewable as

http://www.scirra.com/users/noga

Lucid and Procrastinator, how does:

"xxx is interested in game making with Scirra.com"

sound? I've decided we have to have a sentence like that for SEO reasons, I'm open to suggestions though.
