What error message are you hitting when you try to register?
I had two problems, which may be related.

First, I appear to have been able to register, but when I tried to assign myself a user name, it rejected it saying that it needed to consist of only letters, numbers and a few punctuation characters. That was strange because it was only letters. It didn't allow "beroset" but it let me use "eberoset" which suggests there may be a duplicate account from a previous attempt.
Second, I tried to associate an email address.  I got the confirmation 
email clicked on the link and then it gave a cryptic error message at 
first, but after my second attempt it now says "Error: Identity in use 
by another account."
I imagine that it might be possible for an admin to delete one or both 
accounts and I could try again.
