Why can I not register for Spudtech forums?

Every time I click accept for the rules and crap, it just reloads the page. Do I have some setting wrong or what?

Try registering on another computer? If you can't/it doesn't work tell me what screen name you would like and I will register for you, and you can change the password and such.

Not everyone has a firewall... a firewall will not effect SpudTech in any way.

yeh, well my Norton Firewall was on and i got the same problem as Spencer. i emailed Joel and he said to turn it off, then the forums let me register.

Spencer; if u have Norton Internet Security it will prob be in the taskbar, right click the icon and select 'disable'. you may need a password

Or like I said, just tell me what you want your screen name to be and I will register for you and PM you the password. Then, you can log in and change it.
