Delete is scheduled to be removed.
The rest I do with my own profile … don’t want it gone.

okay the person can add to their profile …. but what happens if they delete the plugin command ?
nathan 2016-03-13 06:08:47 [item 20475#49101]
Then it goes away.
Normal users have full ability to make their profile anything they want.
In the rare case a newbee messes up and can’t figure out how to fix it, they can just ask for help.
Otherwise, normal authors are forced to have a profile sticky.

The point of being a newbee is getting to learn your way around a thinking.domain. Those things are part of a thinking.domain.

actually i think it works great …. maybe ill just say don’t delete the plugin command from your profile … just write arond it smiley

Yes. Either newbees need a special “mode” like training wheels, which would be a lot of programming work.
Or they need a tutorial and instructions.

… and again, I want a popover (not mouse over) help system for lots of this stuff.

actually now that i play with it in newbie mind it works fine … very flexible.  
nathan 2016-03-13 06:18:21 [item 20475#49106]
Okay cool. I do want more popover help. One step at a time. There has been (and generally always is) a lot to do to make new users work right. It’s usually the biggest single ticket item in any system.

Delete profile menu button is now removed.

To delete the thought, you have to remove the plugin from it first.  
novice 2016-03-13 06:26:34 [item 20475#49110]

if a person removed the profile and deleted the throught …. where would his “author profile” menue go?
novice 2016-03-13 06:26:58 [item 20475#49111]
…. going to try it
nathan 2016-03-13 06:32:22 [item 20475#49112]
Should go to a thought deleted paged.

But if you add the plugin back in a thought and change any one thing, it will lock back onto the new thought.
well that worked smiley

what does the parameter “initiial” do ?
nathan 2016-03-13 06:37:32 [item 20475#49116]
Now nothing. It was what kept it open until it was filled out.
But the big blue button superseeds it.

I should use the same term,  “Profile Group” in the welcome letter.

…. but

What about calling this “Personal Group”  instead?

I mean that is what it is,  the person’s personal group.  Special from all other groups to him.
nathan 2016-03-13 06:45:13 [item 20475#49119]
In my mind the word “personal” is synonymous with “private”. I would think this was only for me and not for others to see. Theasarus.com seems of a similar mindset.

novice 2016-03-13 06:52:58 [item 20475#49121]
wink well i guess that is one place we are different.   i do not associate “personal” with “private”.  i just associate “personal” to myself.   But i might be out of step with a lot of people there …. you might just have more of the consensus attitude there.

“Specia”  almost works … however it does not specify how it is sepecial.  
The full term might be “My own special group” … but that is way too long.

Being a triple Gemini and having 6 active channel's into all that is going all the time, the “consensus” world is my natural space. I am constantly flooded with ALL ideas people are having ALL THE TIME. Knowing what is the normal consensus in any environment is something I can’t even get away from.

Probably why I love the perspective that I create my own verse. Not only does it match with the constant bombardment and mixing of otherness in every moment of my awareness and make it make sense, but it allows me to separate from all that and create a little sense of self that is not otherness. My own secret garden.  
novice 2016-03-13 07:07:10 [item 20475#49123]
yeah i get that about you heart

“My own secret garden” might even work (if it wasnt so long) …. but of course this one is not so secret ...i mean its right there on the public internet.  

How about … “Own Group”  ?
nathan 2016-03-13 07:10:13 [item 20475#49124]
I still think Profile Group is a lot better than any of those or anything else I have heard or seen. If something else crawls out of the woodwork and is better then that’s good, but Profile Group is pretty darn good too.
profile group implies that the group is all just about a person’s profile … which it is not.  look at group seth that group is certainly not just about my profile.  we need to suggest with the name that this is their own group to think withing and publish to others from.   … er liks a blog.   but we are trying to get away from that term.
