A surprising number of people have emailed me because they can't correctly complete the signup question to register.

The current signup question is "Please complete the following word: stale"

The purpose of the question is to make sure everyone signing up knows something about chess. Hint: it is something to do with drawn games.

The question is asking for the remainder of the word beginning with "stale", not the whole word.

Type the remaining letters of the word beginning with "stale" and relating to chess.

If you still have trouble, email me via the Contact Us link and state what email address you were trying to sign up from, as sometimes this problem could be caused by other issues like a blocked email address.
