I can't sign up

I try to create an account and I fill in all the fields, as well as check the box to accept the privacy policy, and pass the reCaptcha. I try to create an account and my cursor turns into a cancel icon. Nothing I’ve tried works. How can I create an account?

The first thing to check is if any of the fields have turned red, indicating an invalid entry (this can include user names that aren’t allowed).

SWL invalid signup

If that’s not the case, try using a different browser or your usual browser with its addons disabled.
