Exclamation I do not have permission to edit my user info

I've just logged back into this forum after who knows how long (probably 2013), and now I can't edit my profile, privacy or settings & options (I can however edit folders). I could previously, and I have over 20 posts so I can't see any reason for this, it must be a bug.

Any help appreciated.

Antaeras, 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.
  3. If you are trying to edit your profile, this can only be done once you have made at least 20 posts.

test everything. hold on to the good.

It used to be 20 , that number is now higher and it's either 30 or 40 posts.

Your account hasn't been disabled and you are not trying to edit a post of another user.

no bug

The only reason I post this message is to boost my post count so that I can edit my info and/or delete my account. What an outrageous policy.

Post Pumping
- If a post is suspected to serve no other purpose than to increase the post count of the poster, then the moderators may, at their discretion, issue a PM to the member in question enquiring about the nature of the post. Posts/Threads that are blatantly post pumping will be removed/locked without recourse to the poster.

well, I thought there’s something wrong with my account, but it turns out that the minimum amount of posts required to unlock the profile editing feature is wrongly stated. Shouldn’t someone fix that?

nope , we don't fix that , it's to prevent users to simply start posting like a madman to get to that amount of posts so they can change signature and get an avatar.

You did try but failed sofar, better check forum rules before you continue posting.

Posts and esp post in dead thread , just to get a better postcount are deleted, keep up with doing that and you will end up on a free trip to banned island.

I noticed I’ve been removed from many topics, awkward though... but thanks for the heads up
