Tutorial: How To Find Your User ID

Edit: AvalonSlight found this newer and faster method of finding out this information. Credit goes to them for making this tutorial better!

We see a lot of new members coming into the chat box to ask about their User ID and where to find it. I know that the usual answer "It's on your profile" sometimes doesn't work as my profile address bar just shows "my profile." Here are some steps that will give you your user ID.

1. In the upper right hand corner of the screen, you will see your profile picture. It's in the same box with the big red power button used to log off.
2. Click on the portrait next to your user name
3. On this screen, look at the address bar at the top, it should read something like this: www.templeofthejediorder.org/mytotjo/5795nakis/profile
4. The numbers are your user ID. In this case, my user ID is 5795.

There you go!

There is still a way to find your user ID if you've changed your profile URL (which I know isn't many people), however it requires a good dig through coding via a browser's inspect tool.

Is there perhaps a way we could get the user ID restored to being under the poster's avatar like it was on this site originally? Or placed on the www.templeofthejediorder.org/forum/profile page where the registration date is located?

(Sorry if this is hijacking, Nakis....)

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they're not listening still
Perhaps they never will
