Trouble changing password for new member
I'm having trouble changing the generated password that was provided when my forum membership was accepted. When going to My Profile - > Account as per instructions in the email I get this message.
You should have minimum number of approved posts to be able edit your profile information
Could you please help me with this?
@viduka this indeed seems like an issue. I'm sure it is related to latest forum software updates, I have notified Bill and I'm sure he will look into this.
And welcome to the forum!
The theory is that spammers would create a profile page with a lot of nasty links on them, which isn't likely here as we use a manual registration process.
I have reset it to 0, so you should be able to change your password and other profile information now.
There are likely some other new settings that will require tweaking, so please let me know about any other odd behavior, and I'll try and correct it.

@codecage Is that a problem, or policy same as messages and pictures.
Arduino says and I agree, in general, the const keyword is preferred for defining constants and should be used instead of #define

Well Bill has corrected it. As it was a problem not to be able to change your password without having to post some number of messages before you are allowed to make the change. And as Bill mentions it was just a setting that had to be modified.
