ShalomVeg.com is a comprehensive networking and learning site for the Jewish vegan, vegetarian and animal activist community. The site has been created with the needs of its users in mind, and will hopefully be an important resource and meeting place for its visitors.
Many features of the site are available to everyone, including viewing the learning pages and recipe collection. To take full advantage of the site, register and use all of the features including profiles, blogs, chat, forums and more.
Privacy Info: Registration is completely free and private. You only need to pick a username and password, and can use either your real name or a pseudonym. Once you have created your profile, you can add as much or as little information as you want. The only people who have access to your profile are other registered members of the site who have been approved by the administrator, and only your username will be visible. Your information will never be sold or given to anyone else.
Registration: To register, go to the User Login in the top left corner of the page and click REGISTER. Once you submit the required information, you should receive an email in a few minutes with a detailed explanation of the features of the site.
Once you are registered, you can go to the home page and login in the "User Login" box at the top of the page. A "User Menu" will appear with the following features:
MY DETAILS: Here you can add or change your information, such as name, email, user name and password.
GO TO MY PROFILE: Your profile is your "face" to the community. Here you can add a picture, and write about yourself-your interests, beliefs, favorite foods-it is up to you. Just go to the "Edit" tab of your profile to add your information. Click UPDATE YOUR PROFILE, and then the ADDITIONAL INFO and ABOUT ME tabs to add more information to your profile. Most fields are optional, and only the information you add will show up in your profile. (So if you do not want people to know your favorite foods or your denomination-leave it blank and it will not show up.) All information can be changed or deleted at any time. Remember, the only people who will see your profile are registered members of the community.
To add an image to your profile, go to EDIT and click ADD IMAGE. You can then upload a picture from your computer, or choose from a collection of images. Try to keep your image under 3x3 inches so it will show up in your profile.
SEARCH PROFILES: This feature allows you to see the profiles of all registered members of ShalomVeg.com. You can read their info, make "connections", and send private messages or email.
