Title: Signature
Post by: squirken on October 13, 2009, 08:56:54 AM
Has profile information been disabled?  I was trying to add my avatar, but the system wont let me.  I clicked Profile - and there isnt a link on the left nav bar.

Hey Rich, welcome.

Why the red text?

Avatars are disabled at the Forge, yes.

I've disabled signatures for users with fewer than 3 posts. When a spambot signs up, it posts nonsense in order to give the links in its sig exposure, as I understand it. I don't know whether denying spambots sigs makes any difference, but it gives me some satisfaction.

Anyway, after you've made a couple more posts, try editing your profile then, and let me know if you still can't.

Thanks!

Unsure wether i can ask this here, but i do think it suits the title of "Signature":
If i want to add a personal(and self-made) icon to my Infobox, how do i do this?
Can i do this?

No icons, no photos, no avatars at the Forge.

As an anti-spam measure, applying to everybody: you have to make 3 posts before you can send private messages or edit your sig.

Thanks!
