1. Edit your Profile

If you faced trouble while creating your profile on Telegram - If the data you entered was jumbled or wrong, you might not have received a confirmation email of your application or any further updates from us. As of now you have been emailing us at v@r in resolving this.

In order to do you fix this issue on your own, what we have done is enabled an Edit Profile option in the Rethink bot.

To edit you profile, ping the rethinkbot on telegram and type /editprofile. You will then be able to edit your profile from the start, in the correct order.

Do remember to be patient with the bot and to not hurry when typing your responses.
