Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Hi habeascorpse,

I was able to successfully register with a test username ("abc"); I think what's happening here is that the username you are trying to register with already exists in the system. Usernames must be unique within the system, not only just within the scheduled conference itself. You will either have to register with a different username, or merge that old account out of the way.
