How do I edit my profile blurb?

This is super embarassing, but I can’t seem to figure out how to add a blurb about myself to my profile page. I see other users have summaries about who they are and what they do at the top of their profile, but when I click “Edit Your Profile” it only lets me edit my userpic, display name, tags for what I like and what I’m looking for, etc, but I can’t figure out how to write a paragraph about myself. Do I have to unlock that feature somehow, or am I just missing a sneaky editing link somewhere?

Thanks very much for any help!

When you click “Edit Your Profile” there should be a “About You” box. That’s the one you’re probably looking for.

Nope, other than boxes for tags there’s nothing. Screenshot at link:

That’s weird. I also don’t see a text field to enter a Home Page URL. Maybe one of the admins could have a look at it.

These boxes start out hidden and are revealed and formatted by script. That suggests a script isn’t loading or firing. If you’re using Firefox or IceWeasel, can you try it with Chrome?

Tried this in the latest versions of FireFox, Chromium, and Chrome. Turned off all of my script/ad blockers. I seem to be getting the exact same results every time.

It occurred to me that I might not be able to edit that stuff until I actually upload content? For now I’m mostly just using my login to leave reviews and whatnot, it might be a while before I upload any content. Not sure if that’s it or if I just found a bug.

This is a long shot, probably won’t work, but …
… what if you upload a simple mp3, nothing fancy, just for testing purposes? You could always delete it afterwards.

That was it! Thanks for the suggestion! I uploaded a 5-second CCMixter promo and now I magically have the ability to edit the “about me” blurb on my profile. Cheers ;-)
