Registering with taken username gives wrong error message.

When you register and you select a username that is already taken, it comes back as the answer being wrong, even though the answer is correct. I just thought I should let you guys know.

On the forum. And I was a little vague with the answer thing, I meant the whole find the output of date etc etc, it says that is wrong when in reality the username is actually taken.

You're sure the answer was correct on the time you got the message, I guess. Sorry, I have to check.

Thanks for bringing this up, we'll check it out.

EDIT: I just tried reregistering with a taken name, and I got two error messages, the first saying my answer was wrong and the second saying the username is already registered. Was that your experience?

This was not my experience when I signed up, but I will try this again later tonight and get back to you.

It looks like it works now! Did you change something?
