You're right! There ARE two distinct profiles.
The one under "Edit Profile" in the pulldown menu above is for the Forums side of Mexico Connect. Any changes you make will be reflected only in the way Forums are then viewed, or your Forum messages appear - this is where, for example, you can change your avatar, or the Forums for which you receive e-mail notifications, etc.
The one from the Welcome Page : Account Information: Update Your Profile allows to change certain information about yourself on the Main Database for subscribers. This allows you, for instance, to update the e-mail you have registered with the site for subscription purposes. We encourage you to keep this up-to-date since it is our first means of contact with you about subscription renewals, password replacements, etc.
Recognising that this is slightly complicated, we are actively looking for a way to simplify access, without losing any security or flexibility for users,
