We became aware of a bug in the sign-in form about two weeks ago. For some reason, the information sent from our sign in form was missing first name information when it reached our server.

Our developers have looked into the issue and have concluded that it was caused by a recent update to Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and/or Windows XP running Internet Explorer. This bug did not affect other browsers.

We have added a fix to the problem, and anyone who was unable to join becuase of the bug is encouraged to try again.

Web developers curious about our problem and solution should read Internet Explorer 6 problem with character sets.
