Account at SqueakSource

robert.kuropkat
Hello,

Is SqueakSource (http://squeaksource.com/) still allowing new members?  I tried to create an account on the Register Member page and when I put in my initials and password it just refreshes the page and does not create an account.  There appears to be no other members using my initials (based on the member list).

Yes, squeaksource.com is definitely welcoming new members. I am usually
the person who follows up on problems like this, although I will be
traveling in the next couple of days and I may not be able to resolve
this promptly.

Can you please say the initials that you are using when registering
the new squeaksource.com account?

Thanks for your patience and my apologies in advance if I can't get
it fixed right away.

Dave

Dave,

Thanks for the quick response. No rush on the setup. Initials I tried are RAK.

Re: Account at SqueakSource

Hi Robert,

I tested this by running a copy of squeaksource.com on my own personal
PC to see what would happen. I was suspecting some problem related to a
conflict in author initials (because I have seen that happen before). But
I did not actually find any problem when I tested it this way.

Here is what I did (on my local PC, not on the real squeaksource.com
server):

- From the "Home" tab, selected "Register Member"

- On the "Register Member" page, I entered this:
     Name: Robert Kuropkat
     Initials: RAK
     Password: password
     Confirmation: password
     E-Mail: <my email>
     Description: Dave Lewis testing

- I then clicked the "Save" button.

This resulted in a new RAK account (again, just on my testing PC, not on
the real squeaksource.com server). I was then able to log in as RAK, so
it all looked good.

I cannot see anything wrong, but clearly something was not working when
you did this on the real squeaksource.com server.

Could I ask you to please try registering once again, and see if it works
this time? Please let us know either way, because clearly something is
wrong and I would like to find what it is.

Thanks,

Dave

Re: Account at SqueakSource

David T. Lewis
It should be working now, can please try once more?

I overlooked the problem because I had only tried it after logging in, d'oh!

Thanks very much for reporting this. I am afraid that we have
been blocking new user registration for a number of months without
realizing that there was a problem.

The problem was caused by some recent updates to make the squeaksource.com
server compatible with the source.squeak.org server. Unfortunately this
made it a little *too* compatible in this case, so I reverted the member
registration method to its earler version, and all seems well now.

Dave
