What are doll profiles?

Doll profiles are a way to display your dolls so that people can learn more about them. Your doll profiles will show on your profile page. You can record your doll's data for reference or go into detail about the character's backstory.

Doll profiles are also searchable by company, sculpt, skintone and other specific criteria. If you are looking for images of a specific kind of doll, doll profiles are a good place to start.

How do I create a doll profile?

Click the Create Doll Profile button. If you are on a size category page, you will get the form to post in that category. If you are on the main page of doll profiles, you will be asked to select a size category first:

Fill out the form, making sure to fill out the fields marked Required.

It's ok to skip non-required fields. Unanswered fields will not appear on the final doll profile.

The Information, Styling and Character sections have specific questions as well as an editor box where you can provide other details. Feel free to be creative!

The Images section is for externally hosted images of your doll. You can add them the same way you add images in posts. These can be more photos of your doll, or group shots, concept art, etc. All images must belong to you.

The final step is to upload one photo of your doll. This must be a photo of your own doll, not a drawing or company photo. You can upload a photo from your computer or phone.

When you're done, click Create Doll Profile.

You can have up to 25 doll profiles.

If you would like more, they are available as a paid account upgrade.

Can I make a profile for a doll I don't have yet?

Doll profiles can only be made for dolls that you have. A photo of the actual doll is required.
#72

Can I use one profile for multiple dolls?

Do not crowd dolls into one profile in order to get around the profile limit. Doll profiles are intended for individual dolls, and we encourage you to put only one doll in each profile.
#71

Can I save my doll profile and finish it later?

You can save a draft of your profile by clicking the Save as Draft option at the bottom of the Create Doll Profile page.
Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 9.13.27 PM.png

This will create a private draft that only you can see. To view your drafts, click the sidebar menu link for Your Doll Profiles & Drafts. (On mobile, this link is under Doll Profiles in the site menu.)

When you want to make the doll profile public, untick the Save as Draft box and click the Create Doll Profile button.

When you want to make the doll profile public, edit the profile, then select "Publish" from the Status dropdown at the top of the page.

How do I delete a doll profile?

Go to the profile you want to delete and click the Delete link at the bottom.

Be careful! This cannot be undone. If you aren't sure about deleting the doll profile, save it as a draft instead. That will remove it from public view but will save your data in case you want to use it later.
#67

What if I post my doll profile in the wrong size category?

If you post your doll in the wrong size category – or notice that someone else has done so – click the Report link at the bottom of the doll profile. A moderator will move it to the correct category.

You can also post in Ask the Moderators if you need help.
#68

Can I change how my thumbnail is cropped?

Thumbnails are generated automatically based on the photo you upload. It's not possible to change the way thumbnails are cropped. Full-body photos may display with the head cut off, so we recommend using portrait photos instead.
#75

Can I change the order that dolls appear in my profile?

No, it's not possible to change the order of dolls on your profile. The most recent doll will appear first on the list.
