Hi, someone joined the Discord chat just now and said they were unable to register, here's what they wrote:

I am trying to register for an account on https://fractalforums.org/ but I keep getting an error saying that "registration is not open," whenever I try to make my account. I tried to use the contact page to report this error, but that page will not send my message (it just told me that a field was required even though all fields were filled in.)  Any advice?

I offered to post on FF since I have an account. Cheers :)

it could be that they are trying to register from this IP block that has opened 30 - 40 connections at a time, but outside of that the registration process is working as it should.

do you know anything about this block of IPs connecting to FF like this? I'm stumped ??? that traffic is trivial, so it's not slowing anything down but the system may have added it to the blocklist and if your friend's IP is in that list they will be blocked too.

sorry I can't help any more than that but from here I can register a new account with no problems.

That GOTCHA question about KF is, hmm, how to say it polite,..., rather restrictive to who can join?
I'd say Taylor expansion??
Glad I joined before :)

Well, I successfully registered on FractalForums yesterday, and didn't have any problems. :thumbs:
