Well, hello. I'm trying to register for the game, but the name I selected, 'Ryan Archer' is being rejected. Could someone enlighten me as to why?

If you are entering it as you said, starting with capital letters, there is no reason it should be rejected, and the most likely cause is that the script can be a bit buggy and has been known to reject handles that are too similar to an existing handle. You can try modifying the first or last name a bit and it may accept it that way.

The dev team leader is currently on vacation for a few days but I will point him this way when he returns; perhaps he can do some tweaking to loosen the restrictions a bit.

I ended up using a different name, 'Cortez Lecato', for the signup. But I'm wondering as to why my first choice wasn't accepted. It's not really important to me, I'm just glad I was finally able to join. Still, it's interesting.

From the Character creation section of the rules page:

You may not have a handle that closely resembles that of another player
 


There is probably an existing user with a similar handle, which is causing the script to reject it.

I told my friend about the site too, and he is going to join using the same last name, 'Lecato'. We're planning on playing as brothers.
