I don't pay that much attention to that, some fill it out, some don't
if you want to fill it out, go to SETTINGS in the top right corner
then look to the left for EDIT PROFILE, and click on that

i think she means on the left there is nothing showing what question it is asking for..so she doesnt know what to put there..i just checked mine and when i hit the edit pencil..it just shows a box to type in..but not showing the question to answer...does this help or have i confused ya'll even more?...lmao
it might have to do with the upgrades a while back

I thought the questions would be in EDIT PROFILE ... I even looked lol but there's no questions, just my answers

if you click on some of the lil' pencils, you can answer those questions, like are you male or female

welcome to the Roo lol :flowerforyou:

EXACTLY! That is my issue, it doesnt really ask me anything. i wonder, if i am to write the question and then the answer? cos if thats so then i could just put "you pick your nose how many times a day?" then just reply with "at least twice" lol

The Edit Profile page no longer has questions for you to answer. When I last updated my profile, I just filled the boxes with small bits of information about myself. My suggestion would be to get creative with it but watch your word limits and spread different bits of personal information throughout the different boxes.

lmao...you could...or type in the box
i like goldfish,reading non-fiction

stuff like that and eventually you will have your profile filled out
i do think it was something that stopped working properly when they updated the roo

Thanks I haven't looked at what I said in 8 years so updated it. So the only thing I changed was that I moved from the Middle of the desert to the outskirts of the same desert in southern California. Ha!

The "Additional information" in profiles hasn't had any questions for a loonnngggg time (when the Jokeroo database was "rationalized"), and asking the site owners to put it right is as much use as asking a stone to swim: it almost certainly ain't going to happen.

I can tell you what the field titles should be:

Location
Music
Movies
Interests (radio button selection)
About me
Myspace URL
Video
Marital status (radio button selection)
Ethnicity (radio button selection)
Smoker (radio button selection)
I am here for
Who I'd like to meet
Drinker
Books
Heroes
Orientation
Preference (I think)
Children
Education (menu selection)

That is the list of the fields which can be edited from Settings. Sex appears between "Movies" and "Interests" in the "About me" tab but is not maintainable. :arrogant:
