Hey folks, (mods?)

The title pretty much says it. I cannot edit my sig, profile, or much of anything really. It could very well be that I haven't posted in a long time but I have another iPhone 3G (JB'd 2.2.1 already; also need it unlocked please :D), and alongside my BlackBerry Bold, I am awaiting the new iPhone when comes out in July.

Can you please reactivate those functions? One more thing. Maybe it's because I changed my password, after trying multiple times to enter the right one, but just couldn't remember it. Please help! :)

Thanks!

I think it's because you only have 3 posts. The forums are set up so you have to have a certain number of posts before you can edit that kind of stuff as well as post links. I don't know the exact figure though.

You would be correct. 10 posts. It's for your protection from spammers is all.

Unfortunately, I find myself drawn to post meaning posts like this one in order to get my post count up to 10. :) Your anti-spam methodology is encouraging me to spam. LOL.

If you're plagued by incessant spammers you should try SpamGuard. It's an awesome program built by my company from the ground up with websites like this in mind. SpamGuard has auto-ban features, CAPCHA enabling, and auto-erotic asphyxiation filters.

SpamGuard. The only Forum spam protection you'll ever need. Remember, with SpamGuard you'll have to upgrade to the Magnum sized condoms. SpamGuard puts a smile on your face faster than...

Oops. What a giveaway. :eek:

No, I swear - I'm not really a spammer. I'm here in anticipation of the 3.0 launch later this week. I've been reading TiPb for ages, just noticed the forum link. Mr. Observant, I know.

Well that explains it! I was like WTH (What the heck) why can't I edit my profile. First thought was let me post that question some where and get my post count going (because I suspected I knew the answer), but they I thought search, maybe the answer is already out there. Anyways guess I'm a little closer and I'll just have to contribute a bit more before I can show you all my cool avatar (YEA RIGHT) and sig. ;)
