Tell Us More About Yourself!

In order to facilitate networking and finding common interests amongst members, I've expanded the member profile section with more questions you can now answer (this was a feature request of mine since the previous limit was 3 questions maximum).

E-Mail Notifications

Here's a great user tip regarding e-mail notifications. Did you know that you have complete control regarding e-mail notifications? For some of you, you may have found yourself deluged with e-mail alerts. Well, the cavalry has arrived! You can adjust these settings as you wish! Simply click on "My Settings" in the upper righthand margin which appears right under the "Hello..." greeting and you will find an option to define your e-mail notifications with great fidelity. That's all there is to it!

Thanks to Early-Adopters

I just wanted to thank all of you for joining in advance of my releasing an official news story to welcome everyone to this new service. I had a quick question -- do any of you have a preference between social.consimworld.com or my.consimworld.com. I thought the latter might be more in tune with what this site is about, that you can set up your very own personal page that is truly yours -- but conversely, the "social" prefix spotlights the social networking focus of this site. I'm… Continue
