Hello, quite a few weeks now I have not been able to register my account. Everytime I click the register link and enter in my info it says email allready in use wich I used for this email. I entered a contest and what not and wrote my username as my account for the post as in "username" when it asked me then I got this email once again and still cannot register my account what so ever. Wtf is wrong? Can a admin please get back to me...

Btw, I just registered my account under a simmilar email but different host as in hotmail instead of gmail but same username. but I used a diff email for this same username for the contest so idk if I will get screwed...

Here is the exact email allmost modified due to privacy reasons.

Have you not read any of the articles on Hotmail problems in the last few days? Some people are finding their mail being deleted even when they're reading it. I'm sure you'll have a more reliable service from Google Mail.
