Hi Brian,

I just activated your account, so you should receive another email with a link to login. I apologize for the delay. You can email me directly if you have any further issues.

To recap, when someone signs up for a new account on, it has to be activated by an admin. It's in the system, so that's why you can't use the email again, but it's also not activated so you can't use Request New Password. 

We're really just screening out spam accounts. While voting is open and many people are signing up for new accounts, the queue gets watched pretty closely. Other times, not as much. But I'll definitely work to make sure everyone who wants to vote can and has enough time to do so.

If anyone else signed up for an account in the last 2-3 weeks or so and hasn't heard anything please contact me and I'll get it taken care of.

Ryan Wick

I'm having account issues on

When I attempt to use what I believe my username is it says "The username bdgregg has not been activated or is blocked".

When I attempt to "Request new password" it says "Sorry, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> is not recognized as a user name or an e-mail address".

When I attempt to "Create new account" it says "The name bdgregg is already taken, The e-mail address [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> is already registered.  Have you forgotten your password?"

How do I go about resolving this as I'm not sure where I'm exactly stuck at except some sort of purgatory?
