where you can read & respond to the feedback left from your connections. your feedback rating is linked to your individual profile (not account) & is comprised of two numbers: the top # is your average feedback rating & the bottom # is your total number of jammates. you may change the number of jammates by adding from their profile or deleting from your connections tab, but you may not alter your rating. only the user who left the rating may alter the rating or commentary. the feedback left is able to be changed at any point, but remains a permanent fixture of your profile - so play nicely! the only way to immediately delete a feedback rating is to delete your profile.

where you can review prospective matches' info, stats, resume, pics, clips, vids, & time signature. this is also where you would begin a new conversation via the message button. additionally, members may form associations via the icons in the bottom right corner of the general info area ~ link as jammates, bookmark, hide profile from future viewing, block member's entire account, or flag the account for us to review.
you may link profiles to become higher organizational structures ie jammates. you initiate the process by clicking the link icon in the bottom right corner of a prospective profile's general area. this sends a request that they must confirm via their messages inbox. once confirmed, they are added to your time signature's bottom number, your jammates section of the port sidebar & to your connections tab. when you visit their profile, the link icon will now be pink, signifying that you are now linked. to over their picture & click the remove button.
the top # is your average feedback rating & the bottom # is your total number of jammates. leaving feedback ratings & reviews after you are confirmed as a jammate adds another layer of legitimacy to the site. a message is sent as a reminder to leave feedback & cannot be deleted from your messages inbox until the process of leaving feedback is complete. completion includes using sliders to assign percentages per each criteria, then leaving a written review before submitting the entry. you are allowed to alter the feedback you have left at any point, in the event that you change your mind – or they change their skills ( / ways ;)). feedback is permanent if the leaving profile's account is deleted. when viewing someone's feedback, you are also able to see the feedback that they have left for other members – so be kind!
you may initiate new messages with other members from their profile page, or continue ongoing conversations from your messages tab. to write any messages, you must have filled out your seeker tab through live performance experience & saved. if you are initiating a conversation & are not currently jammates, you are limited to two messages prior to a response. & then five messages after each subsequent response (prior to becoming jammates). you are allowed an unlimited amount of conversations with unlimited threads within.
first try to enter what you think it may be. if it is incorrect, you will be brought to the verify login page where you will be able to sign in via two more methods ~ email & text. for email verification, you will need to click the link in the email you receive & then you may reset your password in account settings. for text message verification, enter the code sent to your phone & once directed, you may reset your password in account settings.
