Why can't new users be registered 'at this time?' 15:29, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Registered? Like signed up? ShirleyALuna Lovegood(The Quibbler) 05:34, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I can't make a new account, it just says "we are sorry but we cant create a new registration at this time". How do i fix this? 12:46, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikia must be having problems. Just sit tight and it'll come good. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 12:50, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

It should work now. Wikia had a 'minor shutdown'ShirleyALuna Lovegood(The Quibbler) 10:06, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't :(
As usual it just says "we are sorry but we cant create a new registration at this time" 15:47, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I know a bunch of the databases have been locked recently (i.e. pages can't be updated, etc.) Try again and see if it can. There are no blocks or anything against your IP address -- so it should be fine. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:22, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
You are allowed more than one account per IP address aren't you? Because my brother already has an account. 16:24, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
That shouldn't be a problem -- my bot shares the same IP address as I, never been any problems. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 17:41, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
I've just tried on a different computer with a different IP address in a different building with a different Internet connection and it still won't work, so its not a local problem. 15:57, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Solved! You can only create and account if you are over 13 years old! It would have been helpful if the message actually told you what the problem was though! The message is completely useless. 19:34, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Right. Well yo could suggest to Wikia that they change it -- we have no control over such things. A variety of countries have laws against registering for websites if you're under thirteen. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:24, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
