Can't edit your details?, please read. 5 Posts required
This is currently the number one question with all new users. You may be confused or concerned that you can't edit your profiles.
Not to long ago the site was attacked by several spam bots which led to alteration in account preferences. If you are fairly new or a very in-active user you will see the following message while trying to edit your profile:
Please DO NOT spam your way through to the 5 posts required. If you are caught spamming your posts will be deleted.
Why does xx user have all their details and gamertag added but have below 5 posts?
They have probably updated or altered their profile before this requirement was added.
I have been a member for a long time but I can't edit my information, why can't I?
You are still required to have over 5 posts to edit your details regardless of your registration date. Once you fill these requirements you will then be able to adjust your profile.
Why can't I make 5 random posts to boost my post count?
This is considered spam. There are well over 500 different forums which you can take part in. If you take part in the community you will reach the minimum requirements in no time.
What will happen if I spam?
All your posts will be deleted, if you continue to spam the forums an infraction or a temp ban may be issued.
Why did my post count go down?
There are several reasons, your posts have either been deleted or your posts have been merged. If you decide not to edit your posts because you want to add something to your previous topic, a mod may merge your posts.
