• Is there a self-service option for editing ones own personal details?

    From Waethorn@VERT to All on Mon Sep 5 16:21:42 2022
    Is there any way for a user to edit their own personal user details besides just their avatar, sig, and password? For instance, if they want to edit their own email address (external netmail one registered in first-time user setup), location, computer details, phone number, etc.

    some of that is in the user preferences.
    anything else you can script with javascript or baja

    it seems everyone here tries to discourage baja, but baja makes it real
    easy and simple.

    Wow thanks!

    I just dumped this into a file I called useredit.src, compiled it with Baja.exe and opened up SCFG and created an entry for it under Main called User Profile Editor (I may change that) with Standard output (replicated the Bullseye settings, just without the "Start on Logon" option) and it was all set up.

    I'll probably go back and customize a few things though. I'm not sure I would want the sysop comments to show up to the user and I was thinking about sprucing up the display a bit to match the esthetic of the rest of the BBS. I thought that maybe displaying a separate menu file would make customization a bit easier (for colours, margins, spacing and whatnot - PabloDraw makes the UI design easy). If I make a menu screen and a few minor customizations, am I able to redistribute it, or can I repost it to the Sync Programming forum?

    all that file is, is an example of what you can do with what.
    change it how you need it.

    i'd rather you not take my stuff and change it and redistribute it.
    just use it for yourself.
    it's an exercise; it's not meant to be spread around.

    You posted it in a public message forum, with no claim of

    That is exactly the opposite of how copyright works in most of the
    world, without explicitly spelled out license and permission, you're
    allowed to do exactly fuck all. Especially regarding redistribution.

    That said, most people aren't assholes about it.

    Oops, yes, you're right. Not sure what I was thinking. Public domain,
