Please (or at the top of any page)

If you click "Control Panel" at the top there, you'll see a link to "My Profile". You can't just roll your mouse over, though--you have to click first.

Thanks again, tway, shame it can't be on the top.

But that is at the top (of every page). Click on Control Panel and you get some links, which include the link to 'My Profile'. That's probably not the page you mean though, ie. you want your own public profile page? I have to say it is kind of annoying sometimes getting back to one's public profile. For some reason I also find myself trying to view it... will keep in mind for upcoming redesign!

SamI am, well, simply having the option (since ther is space at the top) to have the link to your profile page so you can see how your profile looks , but yes the one which shows your picture on it, that one please

There's space there now, but a redesign might change that :) In any case, good to have some ideas of what is desired going into a process like a redesign. We can't get all the links that would be useful on every page though (there'd be hundreds of course with the amount of useful stuff on TP ), so some just have to be cut. But it helps with choosing!

Understandable

Profile link I would have thought would be up there in priority alongside Homepage? In forum, aware you can simply click under your name on profile however you could have a link on every page and your that like a home page/or merge the two.

Even your profile photo on every page (a small icon) that you can click to visit your profile page).

Any chance of a small email account @travellerspoint?

As in an @travellerspoint.com webmail system? No, this is not in the cards. There are too many other great systems out there for us to try and take them on and running a mail server is quite different to a site. I can only imagine the nightmares involved with spam There's also very little benefit I can think of to having an @travellerspoint.com email account vs an @[email protected][email protected], aside from the fact that it would be 'cool'

Like IMDB (I've a top 1000 voter ) can we have a poll runnign on the site. not THAT often, I think fortnightly is perfect, becuase people are away travelling more than IMDB users.

Sugestions I would like to see answers on include: How many countries have you visited

How many trips abroad, at home do you make a year

Do you normally go abroad via, train, plane, car, boat, whatever is cheapest

How many of you typically travel together (from your origin)

How many days abroad do you take a year

How many airlines have you flown with

Who is your favourite airline

Have your had a romantic time with someone you met abroad (open to intepretation perhaps ;))

I would be interested in being a regular contribution/helper in deciding on the poll topics to be published

Also: I think TP should have a spell check function.
