Your Member Stewdio can be accessed through the
Member Stewdios link on the sidebar
of your group's Public Stewdio homepage. It can be found either from
the list shown or through the Search function. Searches can be performed in
By name or partial name.
By genre (category) with which you associate yourself.
An MS also obtains its own Internet-recognizable URL
in the form of http://www.cstew.com/GroupName/YourName.
You or others may use this URL to directly access your MS without
taking the time to go through your Stewdio's homepage.
To set up your Member Stewdio:
Follow the step-by-step instructions generated by

To set up Member Genres -
CStew allows you to identify yourself with certain "Member
Genres". These are categories that are preset by the group
administrator and they allow you to associate yourself with subgroups within
the group (i.e. fiction in a writer's group). This allows someone who is
searching for people with a certain genre to find them all at once. If a
certain genre is not in the list for you to choose, notify your administrator
and they can make it available for you.
Keep in mind that files should always be kept fairly small or others will
have difficulty accessing them over the Internet.
Deletion of Shared Files may only be done by your Stewdio administrator
so you just notify him/her and they will do it for you.
