    Exclamation New Profile Fields -- YOUR OPINION REQUESTED

    In preparation for adding a new campaign posting tool, I am adding some new profile fields that will help match players to campaigns. In addition to all the current fields, I'm planning on adding the fields you see below. What do you think of these profile questions and options? Can you think of any others you'd really like to see? Your input is humbly requested.

    Heh! Thanks, Ed. The question was, are those good profile fields and options to add?

    Yes... if it's not too much work.

    Once they're there, the only maintenance is to add/remove/change the fields.

    Those values look fine to me. I think it would help narrow down who you're looking for by displaying the interests that each of the players have.

    I suggest one like, "Are you interested in trying new games? yes/No/ Certain games only"

    I do think your additions and enhancements are great information to have on the site.

    I agree with PhishStyx that would be a good idea, a "are you interested in trying new games?" thingy but maybe you could add something like a "What kind of gamer are you? category with the answers are "laid back, serious, creative, ect" and to where we could click all that apply to us... Forgive me if it sounds stupid...
