Hi there, any chance of pointing me in the direction of information on how to make my profile, enter a discussion, I am unused to chat rooms but have been recommended to this site and would like to be an active participant. Thank you.

Hi, Tsubo--

If you go to the "My KBoards" link in the top menu, you'll be able to modify your Profile (see the "Profile" link).

Where you'll go after that will depend on what you wish to discuss!

Why is it a user has to post something on a board before they can update their profile photo? It is an unnecessary step and leads to spam posts (like this one).
