Can't edit profile

Can't delete age, gender or location

Currently, it is not possible to delete your age, gender or location once you have entered them. You can change these values though. For example if you do not to display your actual location you can change it to Antarctica and save. We will improve this functionality in the future.

Can't delete text from profile

You can delete all the text from your profile by replacing it with a space character (" ") and clicking Save.

Saving doesn't work

You may need to clear your browser cache, see the trouble shooting page.


Can't upload picture

Most pictures should work and most users have successfully uploaded a picture, however you may have problems with some images such as animated gifs and progressive jpegs. Most other jpeg and gif files should work, try uploading a file that is not too big (around 200kb) and see if that makes a difference. There are several different things that could cause a picture upload to fail. You should try the suggestions on the trouble shooting page.
