    ...... go about editing one's own (in my case, wpe3bql) personal profile / member info / whatever so that

    (1) My screen name letters, i.e., w p e b q l , appear in UPPER CASE letters instead of lower case letters as they now appear?

    (2) My current age of 67 appears in the age column instead of 69? I was born in 1946 NOT in 1944.

    (3) A person can more easily edit his / her own personal information in his / her personal profile / member info / whatever?

    Granted, I am not very adept at manipulating this newer BB format as I was with BB's former one. Thus, there may be a very simple way to accomplish the above three items. If there is, I would appreciate being told how to go about accomplishing these three tasks.

    Being very severely handicapped with a stroke that apparently has affected what very little knowledge about computers I had in the first place, maybe I'm just overlooking something(s) that are already in place in the personal profile / member info / whatever screen.

    Obviously my lack of knowledge "computer - wise" is apparent!

    (NOTE: If this posting needs to be placed in a more appropriate forum / BB section than this one, then the BB "powers that be" are at liberty to move it to that more appropriate forum / BB section that this one. My only request is, if this posting IS, in fact, moved elsewhere, that I be informed of such move here in this BB forum.)

    Thank you.

    You could create a new user name of WPE3BQL and when you fill out the personal profile information input your correct birthday.

    But then there would be two user names attached to your person, wpe3bql and WPE3BQL.

    Best way to do it would be to contact an administrator to change these things and not create another user name.

    Look in the upper right hand corner of your computer screen. You will see a little flag icon, an envelope icon and your user name (right next to the envelope icon.) Hover your mouse on your user name. Now you will see a two column list of items you can edit, i.e. Personal Details, Signature, Contact Details, etc. Click on whichever one of those items you want to edit. After you make any changes be sure to click on the button "SAVE CHANGES".

    You can then go back to your user name in the upper right hand corner, hover your mouse on it, and select another item you want to edit. Again, be sure to click on "SAVE CHANGES".

    How exactly does one go about contacting an administrator under this new format?

    Scroll down to the bottom of this page (or any page, I think) and at the very bottom, under the header titled Quick Navigation, there is a "Contact" link. Click on that link and email the owner of the site.

    Or just use the report function on the OP :cool:. In the reason for reporting, write in what you want changed. And then Whistling
