I am also having weird problems gaining membership to this site. The first time I applied I was rejected because I was suspected of using multi-accounts. I contacted the appropriate person for that and they cleared it up (apparently my IP number could have been too 'similar' to someone elses). They told me to reapply and I did. Now my application is being rejected because my handle breaks the rules for coming up with a name (such as it uses Darth, Lord, or Luke or is already a Star Wars name like Liea Organa or Han Solo). The handle I used was Nevre Miend, and I have no idea why it would be rejeceted. Can someone please help me get a working application through?
Since your old account does not exist any longer it should be fine for you to create a second. I would advise sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you submit your application, so I can try to approve it if I am online before it is declined for multi-accounts. Please include your requested handle in the mail. ^_^
