To potential new users:
Send your email request for a new user account to firstname.lastname@example.org with "NEW USER" in the subject line.
In the body of the email, please indicate your preferred username. (Read more here)
Unless you indicate otherwise, we will email you at the email address you used to send the request to tell you what your new user name is, and what your temporary password is. You'll be able to reset the password as soon as you log in for the first time.
Automatic new user registration was temporarily disabled due to an outbreak of spambot registrations that started in June 2011 and remains unresolved.
