Cannot Edit Profile

I am trying to edit my profile, but I am getting this instead.

It is a post limit restriction. Due to the high number of spam accounts creating profiles with links to shady sites, a minimum number of 10 posts are needed to edit profiles now.

We were getting 30-50 accounts a day created like this that needed to be manually removed, so the restriction was put in place to slow the search engine optimizers from abusing our systems as much.

Most of the responders are volunteers and we don't need us leaving because policing the forums has become a full time job.

So answer a few questions, or ask more, then it will get unlocked. If you continue to have issues after 10 posts, let us know and we'll look into it more.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Okay. I was just simply trying to change the time zone because it is not right.
