Display Name is what is shown to other users when you create or reply to messages. For instance if you wite with a pen name, you could use that as your Display Name, otherwise we recommend using your first and last name.
Title is a basic text field, think of it as sort of a tagline.
First name and Last name is for your name, we highly recommend using your real name as that is what we cross-reference to verify and authenticate guild member accounts.
Email is for your email address and allows you to change your login email address.
City, State is if you want to share where you are from, it is nice to see where other members are from.

Next you can copy & paste your links for various social media platforms. If you use another social media platform that is not listed, please message us and we can look at adding a field for it. Currently we support Facebook, Twitter/X, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube.
At the bottom of the page you can edit your Community Page URL. You really shouldn't have to modify this, but you could if you change your name or decide to use a pen name.
