Looks normal enough... what are you trying to show me?

by

Aren’t there supposed to be a number list? It’s cutting the numbers off.

by

Nope, I used a bullet list there. It would probably be better to number it though, now that I think about it. then you can say "take a look at rule #(blah)"

by

See it has # but it’s not showing numbers. Is this an issue?

by

I posted an image in your question @paperboypaddy You don't see the numbers?

@captainsnowball on you iFixit profile can you add a time zone to your 5-10 or 6-10? I’m not sure were you are so i can’t tell when your on. Also add am-pm or you may be on 24 hour. By the way I like your meta profile pic!

I took that over the summer. I remember I was messing with photoshop at that time http://www.awosting.com/ Its a camp I go to. same to you! The reason I changed my profile pic to not me, is I wanted to do an experiment and see if people would take me more seriously if they did not know I was that young.

by

Well, nice to know someone reads that stuff.

by

Done. also, why don't you move the location point on your profile a little bit. It is scarily accurate. From the google maps, Seems like you have a white house across from a red house. I recommend you push your location pointer a tad bit over so that its not exact. @evan do we really need the longitude and latitude? maybe just the state or something? Because that's really creepy. @paperboypaddy I'm not trying to stalk you or something. trying to prove a point of how creepily exact that thing is. and one more thing about the profile. I really don't recommend giving out your mobile phone number. even though you can block people, still that's a bit overkill. I created a email account seperate from my normal account, so that I don't get spam or anything on my real account.

Hey have you ever noticed that on mobile you can’t see the map location on other peoples profiles?

WOW!!!

I never noticed that I’ve done so many things on iFixit. Your welcome iFixit!

I’ve done a wonderful job. And I’m not even getting paid for this. Not a problem, it’s fun doing work for people. Especially when your doing it for free.

I’m Captain America Planet!

@kyle or @evan

How much more things is there to do in my power? I’m guessing not much. Hey if you ever want to have me edit anything I’ll be more than happy to help, only if you give my some good REP.

@kyle or @evan

Is there a way to make my text different colors? It would be awesome.

by

Its probably pretty easy but there is no real benefit of that for this kind of site.

by

@captainsnowball I’d only use red or green. Christmas colors!

by

seems like you recently learned how to use the strikethrough. but again, the colors do not help ifixit.

@captainsnowball Louis Rossmann has had fans here at ifixit for a long time he and Jessa Bethany Jones @jessabethany have been flag wavers for some time on the right to repair.

I've watched Louis years before he gave iFixit another chance and posted here.

@jeffsu I saw you do most accepting edits on guides and stuff, just a heads up, I'm updating outdated company logos on device pages.

I saw that! You have a sharp eye. There are several folks here who handle patrols besides me, but I went ahead and approved your edits this morning. Thanks for keeping those pages up-to-date!
