Note: User accounts are still a work in progress. Currently, the only benefits of registering are that you don't have to enter the captchas when posting and that your login name is shown instead of your IP address in posts. Working on additional benefits ;)

You can't use your login before you receive the confirmation email and visit the activation link in there!

There is currently no way to reset a lost/forgotten password. If this happens, email the editors. You can change your password through the Preferences page once you're logged in. So use a simple password to register, and change it to the 128-bits-of-true-randomness-secure-one afterwards, otherwise you risk locking yourself out when you mis-type it here ;)

The login name you choose will be visible to other users in comments you post instead of your IP address.

Only hashes of passwords are stored on disk, but don't use the same password as for other systems.

Password confirmation

Full name
The full name you specify here will be inserted as default in your future posts. You can still edit the value with each individual post, this merely saves you some typing.

Email address
Please provide a valid email address. An email will be sent to this address containing an activation link. Your account will not be enabled before that link is visited. Your email address will not be visible to other users.

Web page
Similar to the full name, this becomes the editable default value for future posts.

Please prove that you are a human being. We don't accept automated submissions from dumb scripts (spam and all that). If you are human, but for some reason can't do this, please notify Create an account and log in to get rid of this thing.
