    I poked around in all of the profile menus and the one place that I would think I could update my profile (i.e. profile pic, location, background info) I get an error "You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action." Is it just me? I get that message when I click on my account name in the upper right or if I click on my profile picture in "Your Profile Page."

    Give it a few days and you'll be able to make changes. We just had an idiot sign up recently and post a picture of his genitalia as an avatar along with all kinds of other garbage nobody wanted to see.

    Too bad you couldn't send it back to his employer and mother.

    On a related note (no puns intended)...I was locked out of my account for a few months before your ownership of the forum.
    I made a new alt. account with a similar user name.
    It took months for the new acct to get approved and in the interim, I changed Net services and have no access to that email.
    Since I can no longer use the email acct attached to this current profile, I'd like to switch the email from my newly approved alt. to the email attached to this acct.
    How can I do this?

    Thanks for the info Fanatic. I have no problem waiting it out.

    F85 if you hoover over you account name in the upper right a menu comes up. In that menu there is a link named "contact details." Click on that link and it looks like you can change your email address there but I haven't done it so i can't be sure.

    Thanks.
    The issue I'm having is that it won't let me change it to an email being used for another account, which I'd like to kill off (if I could only remember THAT password, lol)

    I'll merge the old account into your new account. What is the username?

    Let me know the username to the old account and I will merge it into your current 8ad-f85 account.
