[RESOLVED] Can't change profile picture


Recommended Posts

FTR, I am not able to change my avatar either, not with Pale Moon, Chrome or Edge. I do not even see that Profile Photo icon.

Another oddity is when I go to Account Settings, if I click on "Edit Profile", I get an error stating, "You are not allowed to edit this profile". Yet I was able to update my "4" line signature that contained images Photobucket was holding for ransom :angry: but, of course, could only have 2 lines now. :(

Hi @Digerati

With the big update to version 4 of our forum software last summer, there was a major overhaul profile customization.

Those in the "Members" group cannot upload a profile picture and are limited to two lines in their signature.

Because you set up your profile picture and signature before that update last year, you were able to keep your profile picture and more than two lines in your signatures. However, any updates to your signature will enforce the new rule of two lines.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,
Cecile

Hi @TheQuickFox,

It looks like you are in the "Members" group (you can see what group people are in right under their personal avatar or the default letter one).

Those in the "Members" group unfortunately do not have the ability to edit their profile picture.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. 

Thanks,
Cecile

Or does one need to "graduate" to some magic level to be able to edit one's own profile?

This is a good explanation. There are no profile edits or even post editing until a undisclosed post count.

Thanks, Porthos.

Guess I'll just have to garbage post for a while, hmmm?  😈

Garbage posting will result in the account being banned. The process is in place for your own good to help prevent spamming and various types of abuse.

Thank you
