    How can you follow other people? I introduced this website to my friend but I can’t seem to be able to find her profile to follow her.

    Weird question but I was wondering who has the rights to works posted? For example, if a member ever wanted to have their uploaded work professionally published, would the platform be able to block it and take ownership in any way?

      That is a very, very good question. And I’m also concerned with copyright issues, if whether or not there is a chance that someone can steal your work and claim it for their own.

    I already have an account and I want to know how to create a profile picture when my profile is already created. Is there a sort of “edit profile” option I don’t know about? I’m a bit confused still on how this site is formatted.

      Hi there! There should be a small edit button in the upper right corner of your profile screen when you are logged in. Is that visible to you? Can you let us know what browser you’re using?

    Adding date stamps would be useful btw – I’ve got no idea if this is an old topic I’m necro-ing or something posted today … also where are you up to on those updated terms and conditions?
