I didn't really announce, but I added some profile fields a while back.  One of the subscribers made me aware that he couldn't edit anything (thanks for the testing).   Based on that, I noticed that a permission was not evolked allowing the edits.   I hope that changes things to allow other to edit their profiles as to exterior and interior car colors, Vin, engine, etc....go through your profile.

also, coming soon, I have found a modification (Gallery) that hooks to this forum that will allows subscribers to add pictures of their cars and will link to their profile (bulk uploading images as well).  This will allow quick looks at your car images, and provide a self-editing feature to you, taking me out of the loop of intervention. 
I've been looking for some software that was suitable and never agreed on one.  This will solve that problem.

Jim -
Maybe I'm not doing it correctly but I can't get my edits to "stick" or be saved.
It also looks like several of the fields are duplicated (from "Real Name" through "Exterior Color"), unless they are information for additional cars?

hmm interesting.   I'll need to look at this tonight after work. 
This is a modification, and sometimes they have bugs

As part of the forum upgrade this weekend, one of the features included custom fields.  Previously it was a modification that didn't work that well, but incorporated into the upgrade seems to work great.  Sorry if we lost any data in the past, please try again
