This guide will dive deep into the different areas of the member profile page and share some ideas about how to use each feature.
The member profile page provides the single view of a community member and includes several types of data, including social bios, company, interests, activity in your community, and even data like preferred pronoun and t-shirt size.
First, we'll walk through the main profiles sections and the Timeline view, then look at the Detail view below.

💡 How to use Content
Sometimes you'll want to remove members from your workspace. They might be company accounts who have mentioned you on Twitter, GitHub bots that create a lot of noise, or mayb the person is just spammy.
To delete a member, navigate to their Member Profile, click the Delete icon and confirm.
When deleting a member, you have the option to block their identities. A blocked member will not get re-created if, for example, they mention your account or again, and will not influence calculated metrics like Love and Activities. This prevention of re-creating the member is based on the specific GitHub handle, Twitter handle, and/or email address attached to their profile (the identity). If members or activities are created in the future with any of the identities of the deleted member, they will be rejected.
To keep track of teammates but to hide them from the default views on most pages - e.g. Members, Activities, Reports, and Search - edit their profile as and select Teammate for the affiliation radio button.
📘 Tip: You can still see teammates on those pages by changing the filters near the top.
