Getting Started at Nerd Bacon

Welcome

Welcome to NerdBacon.com! Our goal here at Nerd Bacon is to help you become the best writer you can be! We’re all on this website because we love video games, right? Like I have said a hundred times before, our goal is not to be identical to IGN.com, but instead we want to be a site for devoted and passionate gamers who absolutely love video gaming and everything related. We want to establish ourselves as authoritative experts by creatively and uniquely displaying and sharing our passions. With that said, Nerdberry and The Cubist, Nerd Bacon’s 2 founders and owners, keep a very open door to all Baconeers (Baconeer = Nerd Bacon member) as our operation goal is creative freedom and a team-oriented atmosphere within a structured system.

If this is your first time, please read through the required reading IN ORDER.

Without further ado, let’s have some fun!

Getting Started

To get started reviewing here at NerdBacon . com, you’ll need to make sure you’re properly logged in.  If you’re logged in, you should see a gray toolbar at the top of the site (it will read “Howdy, [insert name]” with your profile picture if you’ve uploaded one) – See figure 1 .  If you don’t see this, look to the right sidebar under “Member Actions” (or scroll to the bottom) and use the link to log in.  The redirect http://nerdbacon.com/login/ will also take you to the login area.  Your log in information will be included in the email you received from Nerdberry or The Cubist or other approved Nerd Bacon officer.  Make sure you include any spaces or numbers in your username or password.  If you’re still having trouble, contact one of us right away.

Getting Started Fig 1

Before you start reviewing, I’d encourage you to manage a few of your default account details.  Looking at the gray toolbar, on the right you should see something along the lines of “Howdy, Your Username.”  Move your mouse over this option and you’ll be presented with the option to Edit Your Profile (see figure 1).  Click here and you’ll have the opportunity to change several options such as your display name and URLs for Facebook and Twitter.  I strongly advise you to change your password as well.

Near the bottom, you can upload your own avatar (see figure 2).  If you have a Gravatar account associated with the email address you’ve used, it may already show up automatically.  You can choose to use this, or you can upload a different one without affecting anything to do with Gravatar.

It’s necessary to upload to both the lowermost “Avatar” option as well as the DT Author Box (see figure 3.1) aka Profile Image. Please UNCHECK the checkbox for advertising DT Author Box (see figure 3.2).

Please take a moment to look at a preview of your first review; notice the author box below.  If you’ve already uploaded your avatar but it does not appear in the author box, drop me a line in the Members Area or shoot me an email.  It’s a very easy problem to fix, but I’m not always on top of when new members add avatars.  

Once you’ve finished, be sure to save your changes.  You can now begin reviewing!
