New possibilities on the site
26.02.2014 by Admin

Hi there,

just wanted to inform you about some new features on this site.

First of all there is a history about last taken tests available. This might help some of you to get a better understanding who is using the alexi tests and how their results look like.

Within the settings you can set your gender, birthday and relationship to alexithymia now. These settings are used to show some additional information in the forum to give others a better idea who is posting.

Of course you can omit this information if you don't like it.

Feedback, like always, would be great.

What do the little numbers mean on my post? And how come sometimes I get the male figure and sometimes I get the female figure? Are you trying to ascertain my gender from wording on my post?
