This would probably have made recovery from the recent crash slightly easier, had it been implemented.

You have to go through the same process to update something not requiring a ticket as when you do. Therefore, when ticket lineups are closed, they also don't let you add anything not requiring a ticket.
Right now, tens of thousands of Elfwooders want to make changes to their private info and passwords, which have nothing to do with submitting tickets, but can't because ticket lineups are closed.
Shouldn't there be a separate process for giving your private info, changing your bio, and generally adding no Mod-requiring works of art?

Every single Elfwooder is stuck with me. I'm not playing the minority in asking for this.

you don't need the "publish changes" button to change the secret information or passwords.

Like iaenni said, the changes are saved, they just don't show up on your gallery page. There is no need to publish changes to get Elfwood to recognize your new email address or password. You can wait to have that updated info shown on your page.

That said - the way the queue is closed now is a very simple way of closing it. It requiers very minimal changes to happen. If Elfwood wanted to differentiate between ticket updates and non-ticket updates, it would require a whole new block of coding, testing it and implementing it.
