so you went there:
http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/profile.php?do=editprofile

then what?

That link you can find easily in the topmost blue navbar on every page..
open "Quick Links" and follow "Edit your Details"
or just click on "User Control Panel"
and end up here:
http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/usercp.php
where you have a navigation panel on the left where you can edit your profile, signatre, avatar, or site options etc..

No and nothing??

OK; SID
I was using common sense and clicking on slicksonly to edit my profile and no go. So now I'll put a few things in. Two years ago I started reading DIY and seen your Germany location I thought WOW a real German.
thanks from USA Michigan

well your profile is what ALL of us can access to 'read' your profile..
but even there you have a stripped down editor on the "About me" tab
(the tiny pencil icon next to the information)
Click image for larger version

Name:	pencil-edit.jpg
Views:	1
Size:	35.4 KB
ID:	100350

but the about me tab is only there if you have any info set up already..

So you were one step ahead of yourself

But it's actually quite easy..
the link
http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/usercp.php
is your user control panel.. which as the name implies..
controls your user settings..
(all of them.. including your PM inbox, Notifications and such)

Soo if you open a PM (or just reread an old one)
it'll be in the breadcrumb (first child)

on every page it's in your userbox
(find the topmost rightmost username of yours where it says Welcome, slicksonly)
just below you find a "Your Notifications" Link..
clicking that should also bring up the user control panel..

And when in doubt it's in the FAQ (link again in the navbar)
FAQ -> User Profile Features -> The User Control Panel -> User Control Panel

it's everywhere.. literally

Also a member map that many have used to pinpoint their location.
