Has anyone successfully managed to get to My Profile?

When I try it goes straight to a Site Error page

Straight in on IE9.

'Site error' on IE8.

Site error on Firefox

Okay on Firefox 3.6.16

I wonder what this: "In our forums, you have the ability to subscribe to particular users in order to receive notifications when they post new messages" is about as have seen nothing that gives that option. Hopefully it is just the email notification of replies to a question in a thread as per normal, and they have just worded it wrongly/strangely.

Fails on Opera too

Is that not the tick box beneath the Reply box? I noticed on the first day that was ticked by default, but it has now been changed to unticked.

I'm hoping so, but in My Profile underneath that sentence it says "Allow users to subscribe to my posts"

Does that mean all my posts or does it mean Threads started by me? I feel it should be made clearer.

In our forums, you have the ability to subscribe to particular users in order to receive notifications when they post new messages.

Allow users to subscribe to my posts (box with tick already in it is here)

Anyway I have unticked my box, but then got an error because of no mobile phone number entered. So I just typed 11 zeros and then it accepted it and updated my profile....

Ah - as I cannot get into My Profile I haven't yet seen that!

Works and has worked from the start on W/7 IE8 and Firefox so not sure why it does not work for others.

Nope. Still can't access it with IE8 and XP.
