Living Situation

It is useful to let other members know about you living situation, especially exchanges will take place in your home. Share your:

  • Type of home
  • Accessibility of your home
  • People at your home
  • Pets
  • Usual modes of transportation


  • Affiliation - Members can choose the organizations or groups that they are affiliated with. This is for information only. Members can search for all other members who have chosen a particular affiliation.
  • Community Timebank - If the coordinator has set up Community Timebanks (sub-timebanks within your timebank), you can choose the Community Timebank that you are affiliated with.1


When the member is generally available to do exchanges with other members. Just check the times of day you are generally available or uncheck the times of day you are generally not available. In each offer or request you can choose different availabilities that apply only to that service ad.

Privacy Settings

Control whether your information is visible to all members or only to coordinators.1 If the timebank permits it, you can also set the individual items to be visible to everyone on the Internet.1 Be careful about what contact information yiu make visible to everyone.

About me (Biography)

This is the place to tell other members about yourself. The more people get to know you, the more likely they are to make exchanges with you. You can include images and web links, so be creative!

View your exchanges or record a New Exchange.


View the member's offers or post a new offer.


View the member's requests or post a new request.

Timebankers' Talents

This is the place to easily list things you can do for other members--just check a box for each activity you'd like to be contacted about. In Community Weaver 2 this was called Yellow Pages.

Your Balance

View your exchanges or record a New Exchange.


The member's address is used to place a location dot on a map. If your address is not a valid street address (e.g. a post office box), the map view will not be correct.

To close or open the member's information block on the map, click the location dot on the map. To zoom in or out, use the mouse scroll wheel or click on the "+" or "-" buttons. To move the map, grab it with the left mouse button and move the map.

The whole map database is refreshed monthly, but if you change your address in the profile, the map for your address will also be refreshed. This usually takes a few minutes. Meanwhile the map will display 'This address will be mapped by our geocoding service shortly.'

From the Menu Bar at the top of any page, click your name.
