    Question Unable to modify my profile

    If this is in the wrong place, please move it.

    When I try to modify my profile, I get the following message --

    k357k9, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:


    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    Obviously, I can post, but how do I get this fixed?
    I used the "contact us" messaging system, but have not heard back yet.

    Why can't I create a signature or edit my profile?

    If you are a trusted user, you can edit your profile and create a signature to use in your forum posts. Unfortunately, the signature and profile features have been used extensively by spammers to post their stuff in our forums. You have to be a forum user for a specific period of time and have posted a specific number of messages before you are considered a "trusted" user.

    Please refer to our FAQ:

    In any case, consider next time when you have questions about forum usage to post that in one of the sub-forums of Forums Feedback.

    Oh, and before I forget: Welcome here.

    I just double checked it and it seems to be working.

    Thanks to the person that fixed it.

    Exclamation RE: Unable to modify my profile

    I’m having this same problem. I activated the account yesterday via the email sent. The first thing I went to do was edit my profile, which initially, I was seemingly able to do, but Firefox crashed while attempting to upload an avatar image. I opened a new browser instance and had to log‑in again. I was no longer able to edit any of my profile info, picture(s)/attachments, or my account ‘General Settings’ (I can still access the email/password account settings, contacts/ignore‑list, & blog + obviously [assuming this has gone through] am able to post to the forums). I tried closing the browser entirely and opening a new one, logging‑out, & logging back in – this was all using Firefox in openSuSE (Leap 15.1). I booted into Windows and logged into the forums via Chrome – same issue. I walked away and tried it all again today (not quite 24 hrs. later), but am still getting the same message when I try to do any of those things: 


    I have suspicions it might be on account of all the repeating characters in my username. I’ve been using this name for just about everything since ≈’95. I know sometimes it gets caught by spam‑blockers for this reason. 

    It might just be that this forum has a waiting‑period or certain # of posts one needs to hit before they’re granted privileges to edit their profile. If that’s the case though, I think the above error message should be edited to better explain that. 


    Thanks,
    Jen

    @ JJJENNNNN.
    I do not think it is your name.

    Please try again.
