You can edit your Board Preferences in your User Control Panel. You get there by clicking "User Control Panel" in the little menu beneath your Name, encircled here in green.

Under Board Preferences you are able to edit

Allow users to send you private messages: If Yes is selected; users can send you private messages via the board.

Hide my online status: If Yes is selected; your online status will be hidden to users. Note that administrators and moderators will still be able to view your online status.

My board style: Allows you to specify what style the board utilizes. This setting may not be available if the board administrator has selected to override users' styles.
