We are pleased to announce that contributing authors now have the ability to edit their own author page bios. This means that authors are no longer required to contact the Contributor Relations team when requesting changes to profile pages.
In addition, authors can now add hypertext links and html tags to their promotional sections ("Promote My Company", "Promote My Blog", "Promote My Book"). These features, however, will no longer be available in the "Edit Bio" section. We ask all authors to please login to review how these changes may have affected existing bios and they should feel free to edit accordingly.
You may have also noticed that we have improved the useability of our instablogs and submission process. Users should find it much easier to upload images, charts and tables. We will continue to implement your suggestions and enhance the instablogs feature even further in the near future.
