It's easy to fix
1: ATTACH a computer to seti@home , i just looked and no machines are attached to the project

After step 1

Download some work units and complete them , after they have been returned to the servers and credit is granted your RAC will rise above 0 ( that's what it is now!!) and you will be able to edit your profile , post on boards etc
Life is what you make of it :-)

When i'm good i'm very good , but when i'm bad i'm shi#eloads better ;-) In't I " buttercups " p.m.s.l at authoritie !!;-)

A recent average credit of 1.0 or more is required to stop commercial spammers from making accounts and immediately dumping their spam messages into a profile.
