Profiles and personal messaging added to the HDYO website

6 April 2012

Personal messaging

The HDYO website underwent some subtle upgrades this week in order to add and improve to the website’s ability to connect young people impacted by HD worldwide. Along with slight improvements to the forum, there were two new additions to the site in the form of profiles and personal messaging.

People who have accounts on HDYO can now view each other’s profiles and find out a bit more about one another. These can be accessed when on the forum by simply clicking on another member’s name. As a result of the profiles being launched, two new optional fields have been added to people’s account details: ‘Motto’ and ‘Story’. Both can be edited by going into your account settings and filling in those fields. Both your motto and story will be shown in your profile for other members to view.

The other new addition comes in the form of personal messaging. This important new feature means that those with HDYO accounts can send personal messages to each other on the website. To do this, simply go on to the forum, access the member’s profile you want to personal message and once on their profile you will see the option there to send them a personal message. If you receive a message HDYO will notify you via email.

We hope you enjoy these new features, they are still in a basic form but we intend to continue improving them as the months go by. Therefore hopefully making it easier for young people impacted by HD around the world to connect with each other via the HDYO website.
