Hi there, New Guy here.  I managed to register an account by using the Twitter option, but without that, I wouldn't have been able to get an account at all! 

 

My first attempt to register an account was straightforward - email address, auto-generated alphanumeric password from Keepass, bada bing bada boom.  When I tried to log in, it said username or password was incorrect.  So I verified I used the password I had set, but it was not accepted.  Then I requested a password reset, took that password, and put it into the sign in field.  Again, same problem.  So them I registered a new account with a similar email address, used the password bleepingcomputer.com's system had generated earlier, and had the exact same experience.

 

I finally registered with the Twitter account option.  Does this website prohibit the use of public email such as gmail or yahoo?  For the life of me, I can't figure out what the issue was.  If it wasn't on my end, then I'm flabbergasted a website as reputable as this would have login issues.  Clearly there are a lot of people with accounts, so I'm thinking I didn't do something right.  But how hard is it to register an account?  I have hundreds.

I see your dalewb account as a validated member account. Your second account dalewb2 is validated as well. You should be able to log in to any of those accounts with the proper credentials.

The email domains you used are acceptable. I don't know how or why you were seeing errors on your end.

See the image below. (I cropped the fourth non associated member for clarity)

Yes, a mystery.  I even tried using MS Edge browser just to clear any possibility it was a browser thing.  Feel free to delete the first two accounts if you wish.  Thanks!

Okay I'll delete the first two for you. And you're welcome.

My registration required or gave option to use email address and make a password.  I also registered with a username, different from any email address (but assuming it is associated with it).  Never trouble signing in.  I sign-in using the username and password.  Never found any use or need of Twitter.  If you have a username, maybe try signing in with your username and password.
