If you were registered on the old Forum BEFORE 6th February 2020, you will need to reset your password (here) before you are able to log in. When you've reset your password, you can close this message with the 'X' in the top-right corner to make it disappear. If you need any help getting started, click here.
Creating new account troubles on Firefox and Chrome
I don't know if this is normal but it took me a while to register to the forum. I would try to register using Chrome and Firefox and the two key things that prevented me from joining:
-Site not displaying the error "That username is already in use or does not meet the administrator's standards"
-Ticking the reCAPTCHA "I'm not a robot" box would not show you the test until you've waited about a minute for it to load (only by chance I discovered this).
I was able to use the Edge browser to register without issues
