Hello everyone! I have, like probably most newbies here, recently gone deep into this hobby, though I got my first fountain pen four years ago as a gift from a friend upon completion of my PhD (a lovely green Pelikan M200). I don't know why it took me so long to actually start using and, more importantly, appreciating it...but I have!! And I sort of went on a binge trying out different nibs and inks and am now only really realizing the hole I have fallen down!!! But I love it and cannot imagine a better and more welcoming new hobby.
I look forward to meeting everyone on the boards and drawing on the well of knowledge available here (and maybe swapping some pens to try new stuff!!).
And speaking of knowledge, I have been trying to upload a photo and change other settings but I seem to be missing some tabs/options in the UserCP. I only have Email & Password, Display Name, Ignore Preferences, Manage Attachments, Notification Options, and my Notifications listed on the page. However, in the manuals it says I should also see: Profile Settings, Profile Customization, Signature, and others. Is this just something that is limited for new members? Thanks for your help and I look forward to meeting you in the forums.
