My son can't create an account?

It says "Sorry, but we're unable to create your account now."
He's using the same network as I'm on of course since we live together.

Any ideas of what I can do to fix this?

It's been a long time, Dystopian, since I signed up, but perhaps... the age filter has caught him? Let me ask around.

He still can't sign up on his computer.

Oh another question btw... I was reading the rules and it says something about no promoting sites you have a personal connection to. Does that mean I can't put a link to my own website in my signature file?

@Dystopian...

Your son got an account, correct? Do I assume that is via your computer?
Can he log in on his own, now that he has an account?
Is he running a different OS, or browser, or are there any types of parental lock controls in place on it?



AS for the promoting personal sites... if they are gaming sites, RPG sites, that's a definite no-no.

No, he managed to do it on his own computer I think. Maybe he used a different browser, not sure.
And no, my own site only has my own artwork and writings on it... I'm having a jetpack issue that's preventing me from logging in though... ��*♂️

My son's initial comment upon seeing the forum and site was that they looked ancient. At first I didn't agree entirely because, well, to young ppl everything looks ancient. I've used forums like this before and they worked well enough, but now that I'm trying to use this on my phone, I have to admit a site overhaul and forum software update may not be such a terrible idea.
I'm constantly resizing my screen and scrolling everywhere because the forum obviously wasn't designed with mobile devices as a primary focus.
Is there any ongoing discussion about this topic going on anywhere?

I am not a staff member here but I can tell you that, from private conversations I've had, there is indeed a plan to upgrade the site. But the folks who run this site are doing it in their spare time and it's actually quite a huge job given the customizations that have been done to the site code/database, and thus the extra work required to make sure nobody's game gets deleted, etc.

Especially considering this site has been operating for about twenty years already, I can imagine there's a lot to backup and preserve. One of the problems with such an operation though is that the longer it takes to get done, the more new content is created, making it a bit of a hassle to stay up to date.
Probably the best way to go about it is to make a framework for the new site, insert the new forum into that and then migrate all the current content to a new database in one fell swoop if possible.
I do not envy those who have to do this, since it'll be a massive task.
Good luck and I hope it'll take shape.
I don't know how much help I could be, but if there's anything I can help with, feel free to get in touch.

*activates shameless shill mode*

Fun fact, one of the many perks of being a community supporter (the people with green names) is access to a site skin specifically optimized for mobile devices

*Deactivates shameless shill mode*

Look at the very bottom left of your page and you'll see a drop down menu of skins. You won't have access to the mobile skin yet, but you might like the way the other skins work better

I'm a diehard Drake (No Background) but I've heard good things about lime as well!

lol I found it already thanks @imveros.
I'm using Parchment redux myself. I like how it makes it feel like I'm reading the forums on a piece of parchment.

As a phone user myself I understand the issues. I have found changing the web browser does wonders. I utilize Opera Mini on my Android Samsung Galaxy S8+ phone and only have to zoom in and scroll up/down. Some occasional left and right scrolling due to navigating around pictures or formatting but significantly less then scrolling left and right the entire length of the site. I hope this helps.
