Is it maybe possible to post a profile or two that have all of these categories completed to use as a reference?
That's actually a great idea. I'll look for a few good examples and get some links posted.

Ok, I've posted a few examples. Note that my checklist is intended as a guideline only. Not all profiles will have every element asked for. It's purpose is simply to help me make sure I'm not forgetting anything before I more on to my next project.

This is a great checklist. I have taken a screenshot so I can keep referring back to it as I add profiles.

May I recommend categorization of this space page, especially as it is being referenced directly in the 15 for 15 tracker? I linked to this page in mine, as well as made additional changes.

Hi Steven, could you clarify for me what you mean by "categorization of this space"? I'm happy to do whatever I can to make it more accessible.

Simply type up or search for an appropriate category that this can fit into. I would probably link it to Category:15 for 15 Mission Participants where other people, including myself, have attached their trackers.

Thanks Steven. I was way over thinking your request. I have tagged the checklist to biobuilders, profiles and 15 for 15. Hope this helps.

Made a screeshot and added it to my desktop for quick reference.
