"Old" profile "Hosting Description & Amenities" entries not changeable

Hi,

I just changed some profile entries and saw new options where added.

It's nice to add things, but not, that the old entries are not longer editable and still visible in the profile!

How can I change or delete those old entries?

Yes, someone else asked about

Yes, someone else asked about this a few weeks ago - there is no way to alter some of the older fields yet they continue to appear in profiles. It seems it would be best to just stop the redundant information from appearing (although it looks like there are a few old fields without a new equivalent such as campground, hotel/motel in vicinity).

"It seems it would be best to just stop the redundant information from appearing (although it looks like there are a few old fields without a new equivalent such as campground, hotel/motel in vicinity)."

It doesn't seems, it is (and it wasn't difficult to figure it out)! Who approves such a inconsistent half way "roadmap" of changes at the system? In this case it would be better to disable old fields, then to let it active. Developer maybe have a different logic then users?

Previously (when WS didn't

Previously (when WS didn't need $50,000+ annually to keep it going) those who used the site could contribute to its development.

That is no longer possible.

Upcoming Changes

We are going to announce a date when the old fields will be going away.  This will happen in about a month, so that those who have not updated their profiles with the new fields will be able to have time to do so.  Stay tuned.

I do not see how to update to "new profile" from "old profile"

I received a message in email from a board member about the need to update but I do not see how to do this update.  Please advise.:  

On May 23 of this year we will be deleting the old data on your profile that was included during the software upgrade last fall. If you have not yet filled in the new fields on your profile please do so by May 23 by editing your profile. The fields that will be deleted are:

Distance to nearest campground
Distance to nearest bike shop
Amenities

Update to new profile from old profile

@ Michael Rowe; same for me, don't see how.
Attention WS Board: Once again, I want to change what I wrote in 'How I host & Amenities' and in info that follows. Not in the top profile which describes who I am and where I live. What are the 'new fields on your profile'? I agree with Michael Rowe.
Please advice. Thank you.

Re: Old profile data

Thank you Jack for the fast answer and the information about the schedule to clear up the profile data fields.

Preferred Notice is too limited.

I've just been updating the new fields and find the Preferred Notice field to be too limited. My preferred notice is 2 days, yet the only option I'm given is 1 day, 3 days or Flexible. Please either expand those options or at least allow them to be left blank so they don't contradict the '2 days notice' I've now added to my introduction text.

Incidentally there are now two headings on the form titled 'About you'  - I suggest you change the first one (below 'Member Information') to read "Introduce yourself'.

Perfered notice

i set your to blank so it doesn’t conflict with your description.

Changes in profile - continued

Hello Jack and Ken, WS Helpdesk and Board,

Yet another question. In 'Hosting Description & Amenities- Distance to nearest bike shop', I like to do an edit. It doesnot seem possible to do that myself. Will you do it for me when you get the new text?

Thanks for all your help, much appreciated :)

Regards,
Michiel

Old fields

That is one of the sections that will be deleted.  There are new fields on your profile edit page for that information.
