The opportunity to create new accounts on will be available later today (8th Sep 2009). We will be accepting another approximately 50 accounts and on a first in first serve basis. The reason for the restrictions on new accounts at the moment is primarily down to load and secondly down to keeping a more controlled environment while some reliability issues are sorted out.

Because of the limits on the number of new accounts we are now requesting that users stick to one account each, there is no advantage to having multiple accounts. Email addresses will now also need to be verified before an account is activated to stop people setting up high numbers of spurious accounts.

I will make a brief post on this blog when new accounts are enabled.
