    I already have an account and I want to know how to create a profile picture when my profile is already created. Is there a sort of “edit profile” option I don’t know about? I’m a bit confused still on how this site is formatted.

      Hi there! There should be a small edit button in the upper right corner of your profile screen when you are logged in. Is that visible to you? Can you let us know what browser you’re using?

      Please complete the required fields.

    Adding date stamps would be useful btw – I’ve got no idea if this is an old topic I’m necro-ing or something posted today … also where are you up to on those updated terms and conditions?

    So…is there a way I can go back and edit my hobbies and all that after I’ve created my account? For some reason, even though I filled out all the boxes, nothing showed up in them. It says I haven’t added anything yet…:/
