    Hey, thanks for bringing this to my attention, I will check out the bug later on, but it looks like I already see where the problem lies…

    There is a piece of code (program) that checks if the email is a valid email address, so people don't put in bogus text that isn't a proper email address in this field. The code makes several checks to see if the address is valid.

    I checked out your email address against these checks, and can see the problem. The email address starts with a capital U… On the Internet, email addresses are always in lower case. Hotmail actually allows you to create an account with capitals in it, but it really converts it all to lower case anyway. So your email address actually just contains lower case letters only.

    For now, you can fill in your profile if you convert your email address all to lower case, but I will fix it later on tonight anyway. I will place another post under this thread, when the bug is fixed, thanks.

    Hey man, not to worry, it allows me fix a bug in the site that I wouldn't even know about otherwise.

    I guess services like Hotmail should really let the user know at the time they create their accounts.

    Passwords are usually case sensitive however, same goes for the Ynui site, if you have a mixture of lower case and upper case letters in your password, it must be typed exactly like that.

    Anyways, still haven't fixed the issue just yet, been feeling a bit sick today :-(. but I will fix it off course.

    Ok, the check for email address when saving your profile is now case insensitive.

    All good. Forums have been up since 13th of June, so almost a month now. Considering the amount of time they have been up, it is actually starting to grow quite quickly I believe. Will see how it grows over the next few months. :-)

    I think it's great, because the more users that setup a Gravatar, it should encourage others to create one too. Gravatars are used in many other Blogs all over the Internet too, so it's always a good idea to setup one for the future anyway. ;-)
