okie...step by step:

first i check the box "I have read, understood and agree to these rules and conditions"

Then i type in username, i.e. "hotte"
then password, i.e. "hotte" with confirmation
then email, i.e. serial.killer@gmx.li with confirmation

on the right side under optional infos i answer nothing...(i also tried answering everything and so on...)

and all i get is this:

The Following Errors Were Found
One of the input fields contains invalid data, please check and adjust.

I found and corrected the problem Micah. I was fiddling with the custom profile fields. I had placed an "a" or "n" for alpha or numeric. However it wants you to define "each" place this way. Giving one letter values meant it expected one character value. It got confused. I just blanked the expected format description and the sun came out.

In this case I applied the old bug hunting rule: if a problem suddenly comes up it's probably (though not guaranteed) in stuff you were recently working on.
