What ya doing willis ( as they would say in the TV program different strokes) :p

just made one up, entered some details, they sent the verification code to my cell phone and away it went.


just check on the date format you enter --- Is American remember - they always do things backwards, they have Month / Day / Year, where as the rest of us have day/month /year

So the birthdates could be Example: 06/30/1960 ( and no thats not mine) :lol: June 30th 1960

Use a different browser and try again. For example, if you normally use Firefox then use Internet Explorer. Maybe a cookie issue.

I'll make the same offer Snok did, if you want someone to try for you, send a PM with: (theres a couple of things needed),

1.the alternative email address you have for recovery,
2.user name and password you want -- assuming its created OK then you can change the password later should you want.

I get that all the time, go to customers places -- "oh you remember my password dont you" :waughh: lots of customers over a year, ---:rolleyes: I Dont record or remember others passwords on purpose.

Only a few people are recorded at their request.

All this reminds me of the bollox that Yahoo put me through years ago when trying to create a profile.

It's also a good reminder why I STILL won't go anywhere near a Yahoo related site or group.

If it's this much bollox just to register, imagine how much bollox it is to maintain and navigate... reason unough to take your profile elsewhere.
