We have the technology...

I'm really happy with the new Bios page, and to that end I've been brainstorming about other info I could display on people's individual pages. I recently realized that I can display the "About Me" text from a person's profile page on their VP Bios page, effectively giving them a couple of paragraphs in which to describe themselves, their tastes, their writing style, etc.

So I'm wondering, writers, would you use it? Would you like to be able to give a brief description of yourselves on your VP Bios page?

If it was like a separate bio where we could talk about our writing styles and specific stuff to Vox Populi, then yes.

If it's just a copy-paste of my forum bio, no.

Good distinction! I've created a new custom field on your profile for the VP Bio, and I've added it to the page. You can check out my Bio for an example, and add your own from your My Controls page.

I've also made the News page bylines link to the Bios page, while I was at it.
