How do I edit my profile?
There are three ways to reach your profile in order to edit it:
Roll your cursor over the greeting box at the top right of every page. It says, “Howdy (and your username). A short drop down menu will appear. Click “Edit my Profile”.
On the top, right side of the home page appears a menu within a grey box. The third item down on that menu is, “Edit My Profile.” Click it.
Across the top of each page, just below our logo is a menu beginning with “Home.” Click on “Home”, then click on “Member Area.” The third box down is “Personalize My Profile.” Click on that box and begin editing.
Why doesn’t my Review or Event post immediately?
The staff of Scuba Diving Resource checks every review and event post before it becomes public to make sure that the language is appropriate and that the review is valid. That way, we can make sure that negative or unfair reviews are not written by competitors or multiple reviews of the same business are written by the same person. In that way we can help readers secure honest reviews upon which to base their buying and travel decisions.
Can I do a Review on a business not listed?
Yes! First, you will need to list the business. Here’s how:
- Click on “Write A Review.”
- Enter the Business Name in the box and then click “Search.”
- If the business if not yet listed, you will see a prompt (in blue) saying, “Add New Listing.” Click on it, when the next screen appears, click the appropriate box for the type of business you wish to review.
- Fill in what information you have about that business and then click “Next Step.”
- Then Click “Continue to Listing.”
- You will see that the listing must be approved by a site administrator. Once that occurs, you may come back and write a review.
What type of Business can I do a Review for?
You can review any business that is already listed. Plus, you can create a listing (see above) for any dive related business, anywhere in the world. If you found a great restaurant, hotel, gift shop or any other business that you liked while you were on a dive trip, or any business that has dive related products, go ahead and list them and then give them a review. If it is not related, please put in Tip section.
