User CP -> Edit Your Details -> Edit Email & Password

Though I'm not entirely sure that users with your post count actually have that ability. I don't see any reason why not.

I'd love to just say yes, but no, of course you're not :P

Do you see the User CP button right at the top of the page, above the search bar? (there are a bunch of buttons up there which sometimes don't appear when you're using Internet Explorer).

If not, try another browser. If so, click on it.

Internet Explorer has a problem with our default skin and does not show the tabs.

Yeah, it kinda bugs me. The only browser that this site actually looks perfect in is Firefox.

Sorry but IE is the only browser that this site has an issue with. Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera and Dragon all display it the same.

in Chrome (I haven't used the others in a while), the background for the table doesn't show up.. lemme get a screen shot

Here's a Chrome vs Firefox comparison:

Firefox is a better browser anyway

You actually use the front page?

Hopefully the front page will be getting a face lift before too long.

Nah, I bookmark to /pc/ It's still evident on the other pages, although not as noticeable.
