	<p>The profile screen in the default theme normally consists of a single main pane, with an additional menu to the left to lead you through the editing options for your own profile. Please note that, because an SMF forum may be customized extensively by its administrator(s), the features and user permissions described here are typical rather than definitive.</p>
	<p>To edit your own profile, start by selecting <strong>Profile</strong> from the <a href="index.english.html#main">main menu</a> or clicking your own username. You can also view (but not edit) other members' profiles by clicking on their names.</p>
