Nobody reads the stickies.....Thanks Jimmy - i did think it might be something like that, as other forums do, but couldn't find any info.
Perhaps it could be added to a sticky or faq for newcomers ?
How do I know this?
Because it's already in one.
To be fair it doesn't mention the editing but does say 30 days until full member.
Maybe I will write one for new members and collate everything so it can be ignored from a more prominent place
