Yes, it is because you are a new user. People who have just signed up are unable to edit their profiles until they make their first post. It's a new "beta" policy we're testing as of today, hoping to curb the increasing rate of linkspam profiles. We've been getting a lot of them lately.
My registration and activation seemed to work out okay (since I'm here posting), but I'm unable to edit the information in my profile or my avatar. I get an error saying, "You are not allowed to use this part of the board." Is this because I'm a new member, or is there something wrong with my account?
You are now a regular user, feel free to edit your profile. And welcome to the forum, BTW.

I´ve been a reader for several years, but the same problem worried me for the first hours as a registered member.
The "help"-function didn´t help me, because the editing-function was not availabe to me like it was written there, but thanks to this thread (and alpineviolet and Exil) I´m wiser and now knowing, whats going on. Perhaps it´s also good for the mods/ admins to know, that not only alpineviolet was wondering about the editing-function as a new member
Please excuse my poor english, but also a hearty "hello" to all forum-members!
