i seem to have mixed up the profile generator. we just launched our site yesterday and new profiles are coming in now, but where i indicated email it is showing the birthdate instead. i probably renamed the spot where the birthday was originally, so it is my mistake. but, i don't know how to correct it. i would like to get it fixed before we get more people added. any help? our site is at

You had two Profile Generator questions that you changed their meaning. You cannot do that because the system uses that information for specific things.

1. You changed (BirthdaySmile to Email address(es): -- I changed it back
2. You changed (HomepageSmile to Favorite Bands: -- I changed it back.

If you want to add these two profile questions, I recommend adding them as new questions. You can move them up and down the list, but don't rename the default questions.

you renamed two other default questions, but didn't really change the meaning much, so I left them how you have the wording.
1. (ChildrenSmile you renamed it to Children/Grandchildren: (probably OK to change this)
2. (School StorySmile you renamed it to Memories: (probably OK to change this because the meaning is still similar)

OK, now where it says homepage and people have already filled in their favorite bands, how do i transfer that info already entered? i created a new question for that. do i have to ask each person to change their own? i guess i don't have to have an email button since that is generated in the system already?

The SYSTEM e-mail address field is in the DETAILS and is considered private data and will never be revealed to classmates. If your classmates want to let others know about their e-mail address, you would need a PROFILE question in order for it to display.

You would need to do Manage Classmates, then click DETAILS of each of the classmates. Then copy the answer from "Homepage" to the "Favorite Bands" question (unless the answer looks like a home page address). You would only need to look at those who were before the recent change.
