PostSubject: I'm over 99 years old?!?!?!   Mon Mar 30, 2009 10:57 pm

When I try to change my profile it tells me that I can't because the forum doesn't accept folks over 99 years old.

Question:-

a. since when was 1969 over a century ago?
b. why are we excluding 100-year-old race fans?

Obviously a bug, perhaps the easiest thing would be to simply switch off the check? I want to alter my location but can't.

why do you want it set at 100 ?

if you set it at 99 it will change to 100 next year, ie your birthday, no site works so that you can input a date of over 100years old for date of birth, i donit know why it just doesn't.

if there is something you want to change in your profile PM me & i can change it for you Smile

Not quite sure what you were saying there, Al... my date of birth is set to 1969, so I'm definitely not 100 - honest!! And the "Age" is shown just above the location as "39" to it KNOWS I'm not 100 (!!)

Yet it says...

Sorry, this site does not accept user older than 99 years old

I want location changed to "Weston-super-Mare" - but can we find out why this is happening, please?

Found something on another forum...

Quote :
This problem can be addressed by going to your Memberlist, clicking on your name in the list which will take you directly to your new profile page. From there, when you hover your mouse over any field that can be edited, 2 arrows will show up. Click the arrows, edit the field accordingly and then click the little "green check mark" to validate the changes.

Weird... ah well, now we know!

Read what I wrote...!! It doesn't SAY I'm 100, but if I try to change my details through the "Profile" link (right of "Usergroups") it says I cannot because I'm over 99.

I also linked to a thread on the Forumotion board above where they discuss the issue, and I've posted a workaround which involves going into your profile through the member list.

It's a known bug, clearly.
