    Don't you see "Your Profile Page"?

    Are you saying that you can't find your profile page or that once you find your profile page you can't figure out how to edit/add to it?

    On the side of the forums, there is a column called New Profile Posts.

    It says the latest profile posts of users.

    LoL
    madly searching how to do this.
    expecting a mod will post soonish.
    assuming it is not "start a new conversation" while putting yourself as the recipient.
    can't seem to find a button for it.

    There is no box. All it says is
    1. There are no messages on gamelord's profile yet.

    I am also in the same category, having no option for profile posting. I looked into it some time ago and it was discussed in some thread here .... apparently they rolled out a new format and some regulars missed out, so jamesr or someone manually fixed it for them. I don't know if you have to knock up a certain post count before the facility is unlocked ???? If that is the case, use google to find material to post on the jokes or lolcats thread???

    Try this:

    (1) Click avatar; look for link, "Profile Page"; click that link—it should take you to a profile page with several tabs, and mine lands on Profile Posts by default, complete with an input window.

    Gamelord: Click here↗.

    Musika: Click here↗.​

    (2) Go to the front page↗, type a message into the New Profile Posts input box in the right-hand column.​

    no box
    guessing its an option required to add by super mod.
    or only in code for old members etc ?
    as an observer you can see everyones profile posts" tab, but there is no open text box on it.

    Okay, thank you.

    We'll check with Admins.

    And I'll try one more thing.

    Oh, hey, you can, too. Click on my avatar, go to my profile; you should be able to leave a note on my profile wall, as such; let's see if writing on yours give you any control options.

    Note: There are profile messages from RainbowSingularity, Musika, and Gamelord (as of Friday, from BwS.) You should, at least, have a "comment" button somewhere near those messages.

    On the front page of this site, on the right hand side of the screen, just below the 'member's online' section/box, do you see a little one line window that allows you to post in it? That is also a profile post thingie..

    I checked on your profile and the chatbox is there for me to also post on your profile... Try that maybe?
