Step 1: Register
To start using mylifelists.com you need to register. Don't be afraid, we will keep your details confidential (see our Security/Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions for further information). To Register, just click the link on our front page, or anywhere you see a link to "sign in". The Registration page asks you for some information about yourself, a lot of which is optional. Obviously we have to know your email address, your name and so on and you must set a password for your own security. We strongly recommend that you choose a nickname which can provide you with a level of anonymity, otherwise your real name will appear in search results.

Step 2: Create your Public Profile and main Lifelist
Next you can provide some "public" information and a photo (all optional), after which you can start filling in your main Lifelist. This is created from your responses to a fixed list of questions/categories. You don't have to complete all of the responses as you can save your list and come back to it another time.

Step 3: Validate your registration
In the meantime we will have sent you a Welcome email which includes a link for you to validate your registration. This is just to make sure we can get through to you by email. Click the link (or copy and paste it into your browser) and your registration will be confirmed. You can then make full use of mylifelists.com!

Step 4: Add to your main Lifelist or create other Lifelists, Piclists, Todolists or a Bucketlist
Once you've validated your registration you can then edit your main Lifelist, create Lifelists on other subjects or create Piclists, Todolists or a Bucketlist. From the "my lifelists" tab, click the "new" button, choose the type of Lifelist (Lifelist, Todolist, Piclist or Bucketlist) and click "continue".
Lifelists: Give your new Lifelist a name, describe it if you wish, select the category of Lifelist from the pulldown menu and select either "public", "for friends only" or "private". Then enter your list items and click "save" or, if you want more items, click "save and add more items" (as if by magic, more empty fields will appear!). If you want to delete an item, tick the "Delete" box to the right of the item (in "Edit" mode) and click "Save". The items will then be deleted.
Todolists: similar to Lifelists above but for each item you can set a target date for when you would like to have it completed. Click "save" or "save and add more items". Later you can edit your Todolist and when you've completed an item you can tick the "Done" box.
Bucketlist: similar to Todolists but without target dates. Click "save" or "save and add more items". Later you can edit your Bucketlist and when you've completed an item you can tick the "Done" box.
Piclists: As with Lifelists you can name, describe and categorise your Piclist, then select up to 5 picture files at a time to upload. Each one can have a caption. Click "save" or "save and add more items".

Step 6: Other Functions
My Friends You can make friends with other Lifelisters. When searching mylifelists.com if you click on someone's name you will see that person's Public Profile and a link to ask them to be your friend. Click on the "my friends" tab to see your list of friends and their lists, see who has asked to be your friend (and accept or decline the requests) and send messages to your friends. When you create or edit a Lifelist you can set the list to be seen only by your friends. Learn more
My Messages You can send messages to other Lifelisters who are accepting them. When searching mylifelists.com if you click on someone's name you will see that person's Public Profile and a link to send them a message. Click on the link from your home page ("my home" tab) or click on the "my messages" tab to view your messages. Learn more
Favourites If you have found a Lifelist that you like or admire you can add it to your favourites – accessed from the "my favourites" tab – so that you will be able to find it again without searching the whole system. To add a list to your favourites just click the add to Favourites icon next to the list. You can then choose to 'watch' your favourites – click the eyeball icon to the left of the favourite – so that you get a notification on your 'my home' page whenever they change.
Legacylist This is a private list of your wishes or instructions that can only be accessed by those you have chosen in the event of your death. It is not a will, but a way for you to pass on words of wisdom about life to those who you leave behind. It is protected by a secondary password to ensure that no-one can access it without your permission and you can download a 'Legacylist Card' to carry or keep safe, a bit like a donor card. Learn more
me2! Has a Lifelist entry really captured your imagination? Does another Lifelister have something on one of their Lifelists that makes you want to shout "me too!"?
Now you can show your feelings by giving that entry a "me2!". When viewing a Lifelist you'll notice that after each entry there's a add me2! button. Click the button and a me2! smilie me2! is added to that entry.
So who's adding me2!s? Move your mouse over a me2! smilieme2! to see who put it there or click on it to see their public profile and Lifelists!
