Sorry, I don't understand.  I think I have done everything as set out.  I tried last March too but when I hit 'change profile' it just comes back to a blank form again and doesn't accept the changes.  I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what !!

Hi Susan/Freddy,

Unfortunately the input procedure is not very clear on this point, but if you try to choose a name that has already been used, then the form will "come back" and the only information available will be a red asterisk at the username field.

There is already a member called "Susan" so I suspect that this is the problem.

regards,
Bob
