What is your expertise?

Unread postby rainbowgirl28 » Wed Mar 18, 2009 10:55 pm

The latest version of phpbb has a lot of cool features I have not taken advantage of.

Well here is one I am going to take advantage of. I have added a field for level of expertise.

Examples of what I am looking for:
Current High School Vaulter
Former College Vaulter
High School Coach
Fan
Parent
Masters Vaulter
Post-Collegiate Vaulter
Elite Vaulter (anyone who has ever qualified for a USATF Open Championship or Olympic Trials)

You can have more than one thing. For example, I have both Former College Vaulter and Coach (all levels). If you are a coach you do not have to put what level of vaulter you were.

If you are in high school, you have to put high school vaulter. I don't care how much you help your teammates or siblings or whatever, if you put coach I will delete it. If you are in college, don't put coach unless you have an official title as coach somewhere, helping your teammates or helping out at your high school sometimes does not count.

I reserve the right to edit what you put without notice, so don't waste your time putting something stupid.

Keep it simple.

Here is how to edit this field:

On the upper left part of your screen, go to User Control Panel.
Click on Profile (it's the second tab)
Scroll down to the bottom and type what you will.

Enter your birthday while you are at it! When it's your birthday it displays it at the bottom of the forum :)

By the way you all have a day or two to do this, then I will start doing it for you as I see fit. I mean you'll still be able to change it, but don't be surprised if you don't do anything with it and suddenly you see something there.

I vaulted in high school and have done some volunteer coaching at the high school level. I'm really enjoying reading on the forum.
