Meet your new modeling self
September 5, 2014 in Uncategorized
Almost two years ago I had a privilege of posting the very first article at iModeler and have been closely watching the development of this community ever since. I cannot tell you how excited I am about all the wonderful submissions to the Headlines that keep appearing at iModeler these days. To me, what we have here is the coolest, most worth following, most shareable scale modeling publication on the web today. Period. I’d like to extend my personal thanks to everyone for keeping me inspired every day, many times a day. It’s addictive! Is it just me? How often are you visiting?
Your profile – updated
We have some exciting changes to iModeler ahead. The first one, available today, is the simplified member profile. They say that a picture is worth more than a thousand words, and nothing tells more about the modeler than the pictures of his work. For this very reason your profile page has been cleaned up, simplified and decorated with a selection of your recently added pictures. Have a look at my profile below or go to the red My stuff tab to check yours (you need to be logged in to view it).
(obviously my profile will not only show my models, but a variety of subjects depending on my recent writing as the editor)
Discover new friends
I like this new profile page a lot. Yesterday, I found myself spending a full hour browsing the Members tab and randomly peeking into individual profiles. With the new visual impact, each profile immediately tells a lot about the owner’s modeling personality. The experience was fun and educational – feel free to give it a try. Chances are you’ll be making more friends – and that’s definitely a very good thing.
This is your own modeling blog – share it!
Looking at your profile, you will find a prominent link to your own modeling blog.
What, a blog?
If that’s surprising, I’m rushing to explain. Besides being posted at the Headlines, all your writing here at iModeler is being collected on your individual page, which in turn is formatted as your very own personal blog. I have found mine at:
…and if you substitute “editor” in the above with your iModeler user id, you will be getting a lnk to yours.
The personal blog is something that not only may help you keep track of your modeling history, but is eminently shareable as a link – to friends, family, in social media, on other discussion forums, in an email signature.
Just a thought.
Last but not least, I you haven’t posted at iModeler yet, all of the above is still ahead. Make your first post – it’s worth it!
