Some updates to the Member Center format

Hi folks,

I wanted to give a heads up that later today you'll see some tweaks to the overall look of your Member Center. Most noticeably, a "header" will now appear with counters that display your:

-- Contributions (total of all contribution types except pins),

-- Cities (all your "Been" pinned cities),

-- Countries (the total countries that have "Been" pins), and

-- Friends (if your TripAdvisor account is connected to Facebook, this will show your total Facebook friends that are also TripAdvisor members. If you are not connected to Facebook, your "Friends" count will be 0)

Some additional details on the header section:

-- The header is persistent throughout your profile. You won't see anyone else's. You also won't see yours if you're viewing someone else's profile.

-- The Contributions area also has its own dropdown to take you to all your Contributions (reviews, ratings, etc).

You'll also notice that we've removed the left-hand navigation section from your profile. The "Your TripAdvisor" area in the header takes you to all key areas of your profile. You can also get to these areas (as before) from the drop down in the masthead in the upper right of corner of TripAdvisor pages.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this new look!

Cheers,

Jeanine

Took me a while to figure it out, but the new format looks quite neat I think. I don't have any friends either, does anyone?

The compliments link seems to have been removed. Is this something TA is doing away with?

The functionality of the Compliments link was discontinued a few years ago as it wasn't being used very often; they left the compliments there though:

Actually, the 'compliment' functionality to trip lists was never discontinued.

If you look at trip lists now you still have the option to leave compliments. The compliments were displayed under profile until this morning. They seem to be gone now.

I don't have any friends either. Ya know what, they can stay on facebook where they belong. Why put a friend count on a TA page?
