I've adjusted the forum permissions so that only members with 5 or more posts will be granted access to:
3. Personal Text
4. Editing extra profile fields such as Location, Website, Gender etc.
5. Customized look & layout settings
6. Customized notification & personal messaging settings
7. Buddy and Ignore Lists
This was done mostly for security reasons. If you have less than 5 posts but have added an avatar, signature, or made other edits, they will not be removed. However, you're not grandfathered the above permissions so you won't be able to change what you have until you have 5+ posts.
