Where do I find my Profile?

After you login, you will see a link to “Profile” under the Welcome [your screen name] message, on the CaregiversLikeUs™ Home page.

You can also find it by clicking on the link in the top or left side menu bar to CaregiversLikeUs™ Members Directory. Then click on your screen name.

I see my age group listed in my Profile. Will other users see my age group?

No. In registering you were asked to indicate your age group, but this part of your profile is visible only to you. Other users cannot see your age group, and you cannot see theirs.

Can I post links in my Forum posts?

No. Links are not allowed or possible in Forum posts. This is necessary in order to keep our Forums free of spam, and not encourage spammers who otherwise unfortunately may post unrelated or unacceptable content just to leave a link to their websites. We want to maintain a Forum of good quality which will serve our Caregiving Community — not spammers.
