Most of the modules on your myNBC profile have editable content such as featured photos and videos, blogs, and comments.

The icon on the far right is the "Edit" button, which allows you to update the content that appears in that module. The icon to its left is the "Move" icon. You can click the Move button and drag the module anywhere on your profile page. Modules that do not have these buttons are either not editable (e.g. What's New?) or unmovable (e.g. About Me).

When is my video that I uploaded going to be posted so my contacts can see it?
All video submissions must be approved by myNBC administrators to prevent the uploading of inappropriate content. We make every effort to approve submissions as soon as possible, but the volume of requests can sometimes cause delays of several hours. Please be patient and try back again shortly to see if your content has been approved.
Why did my video get rejected?
Why did a photo that I uploaded get removed?
myNBC administrators review photo submissions for inappropriate content and will remove photos as necessary. It is also possible that your photo had been flagged as inappropriate by other members, which can also lead to its removal.
