My name is Melissa and I'm the Community Manager for the profiles team
and work with Jami, the Groups Community Manager.
We heard from Jami that many of you have expressed a desire to check
the complete profile of a user prior to allowing them to join your
group. With the recent changes to profiles, many of you have been
unable to do this.
We value all of you as Moderators. For the time being, you may verify
a user's profile and account information by going to:
Please replace "YAHOOUSERID" with the ID you wish to research. This
will pull up a profile page similar to the old profiles format.
This format/page will NOT be available for long and is a temporary
solution for many of you who need to review full profile information
to appropriately manage your groups, while
Please note that any changes you make to your own profile while logged
into this screen will not show up in your new profile.
At this time, the only way to reliably manage and edit your own
profile is to go through http://profiles.yahoo.com
Thanks again for all of your feedback and patience, and please be sure
to check the profiles news blog for the most recent updates and posts
on the new profiles system. http://www.yprofileblog.com
If you have additional issues concerning profiles and how it relates
to the management of your group, please feel free to email me directly
