Not able to modify profile
« on: February 26, 2011, 04:42:39 PM »
Hello, 

I've just been trying to add my country and signature to my profile.  I select Profile, and it opens to the Summary page where that info would go, but there is no way to add anything.

Modify Profile is listed, but no way to click on it.  The only place I can find to make changes is Account Related Settings which doesn't help.

What am I missing?   Thanks!

Try again.  I think you need 20 posts to be able to update your profile.  :)

Nope, I thought it was still in beta, and was going to wait until full release.....

It's stable/official now, not beta.

Okay, I get you.  We don't have much of a personality (i.e. "profile") until we have posted 20 times.  That way, the older folk can look down on us newbies and think, "They're all the same."   :'(  (I know, you guys need more smilies. All the better to express ourselves 8))

It is more an antispam thing, it attempts to prevent spammers registering for the forum, and editing their profiles to be full of links...if they don't post, then it is hard to keep track of.

For me though the main reason is the blocking of Personal Messages. Since someone needs 20 posts before they can send a PM, spammers cannot register, and start spamming everyone through PM's...

The only problem is that when the do register, they can still post...until they are caught that is...though generally the mods are fairly quick on this.

Okay, this makes sense. I was just annoyed since my timezone is wrong here, and apparent I can't change it. ::)
