I had to try a dozen - literal - times to create an account.
This site uses OpenID, which I thought would make my life easy. However, it does simply let me click a google icon or anything, no, I had to go and find out what the Google OpenId URL was... which isn't as easy as you might think.
Ok, so that worked and I'm logged in and ready to go, right? Wrong. Although I am now fully identified, the software demanded that I make a new account anyway. This is precisely what OpenID is supposed to eliminate, right?
Ok fine, so I start filling things out, including the password I use on all low-value sites. I don't mean "low value" as in "not much of value here", I mean "low value" as in "if someone steals the password from that site, I don't care because I won't post any high value information".
However, it wouldn't let me do this. A warning came up complaining that my password had to be at least six characters, even though it was much longer than that. Assuming it was actually complaining about the content, as there was a yellow warning, I tried another. No joy. And another. Again. So then I made a 13 character random one and pasted it from my text editor into both fields. Nope.
Basically if you fail once, some state gets set in the browser that ensures you can no longer register properly. I had to use a different browser to get it to work.
ALL of these are issues. It should not take 5 minutes to create a friging account. In fact, I shouldn't have to create an account at all, that's what frigging OpenID is for!!
