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.
