are users not allowed to have an avatar here? I can not select one in my profile.

Second thing is: if I want to edit one of my old threads a messages, this appears:

The administrator has specified that you can only edit messages for 11000 minutes after you have posted. This limit has expired, so you must contact the administrator to make alterations on your message.
Well, that's bad news for users who actually maintain their posts. Any way to change that?
