I have the same problem: can't get past the nicknames page..

I followed your advice and discovered that my screen name was already set.

Why don't they just get rid of this? I recall having the same problem a whole year ago.

I'm not sure. Did you try the steps in the first reply? Are you getting an error that the name you want is "not avaialble" or "already taken?"

generally just scroll over the text and see whether the cursor changes. I have it easy... I have an edit button on all posts. You guys could take a peek at the source code... or use a newsreader... they see it really clearly.

I'm getting this error myself, and have following the above guidelines, but don't seem to be getting anywhere?

Looking in the sourcecode, what exactly am I looking for?

Thanks in advance,

If they all report as being "taken" There must be something wrong with the nickname registration, or lots of spam bots registered all available nicknames?

you left the insect store and now the one right after your message.

what's with these people. zombie spambots go for like 1000 systems for a penny that'll do like a million spams every couple hours. then they can spam to their heart's content. are these the stupid spammers who think they're going to get rich one link at a time?

I went to the forum and they are talking about how links are quickly spotted and removed! Thanks to all you eagle-eyed folks that help to keep things relatively clean around here!

numbnuts like deneme, whose post I just deleted, and set to read-only, so he can see that it just ain't worth while, are all part of the clan coming from over there, and likely other similar places. Feel free to go to that forum and give them some crap for all of us.
