We posted some screenshots along with the description. If you have questions that are not yet included on this page, please feel free to let us know. We will then immediately update this page and share the new answers.

B: Profile picture – This image can be altered and is therefor labeled with a small pen icon. C: Profile name – The profile name can be altered and is therefore labeled with a small pen icon.
