"Currently Playing" section in profile wrong, never wrote those ...

ValkyrieValkyrie Member UncommonPosts: 192
I am perplexed to see this information in my profile under "Currently Playing". Not only did I never play "Beyond Earth" I definitely never added this anywhere. And I can't find a way of editing this. So where is the information from and how do I adjust this?

Played: Pretty much any fantasy MMO, some did not even make it to release ...
Favorites: UO, EQ2, Vanguard, Wurm Online, Salem, ESO, Creativerse
Playing: ESO, Creativerse, Guild Wars 2
Anticipating: (sigh) ... maybe Ashes of Creation

    Mine is wrong too. I seem to be doomed to play WoW forever. I've tried everything but can't correct it.

    When they flipped the site to a freeware version they lost the ability let users update a lot of the personal info.

    Along with the ability for @Nanfoodle to write all his text in lime green.  Okay, maybe it wasn't all doom and gloom, but I still liked the other editor better.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    The other editor was far better.  When the site first upgraded to the pay version of Vanilla I was surprised to see it had less editing functionality than almost any free forum or site I've visited in the last 10 years.

    Just like the MMORPG genre, the site's software marched backwards as well.

    I prefer logging into in on anything other than a cell phone! Though, if I'm on the subway or bus I can read the site which is "ok."

    Rather do it on a computer.

    Not sure if this will paste properly, I stumbled on it and can't figure out how I got there in the first place.

    https://forums.mmorpg.com/profile/edit

    Got it, the "Account Options" cog at the top of the page is it's own URL, even though clicking it only opens the drop down and doesn't take you anywhere.  Right clicking on it and opening in a new tab will take you to the edit page.

    Seems like an oversight to me.

    I don't disagree,  but if there's a computer available I'm logging in to play games, not read forums.

    If I had more than one screen it might be different.

    I looked for this for over an hour tonight, then came back here and found your post.  I would never have found it otherwise.
