User account

All new account requests must be authorized by a real human (and that's just one person right now) before the account is activated, so please be patient. To expedite the registration process, please enter your real name and email address. Usernames can be whatever you like, so feel free to be creative with that one. You'll receive an email when your account is authorized (probably within 24 hours of your submission). Follow the instructions in that email to complete the registration process by entering additional personal information and submitting a personal photo.
