If you can't find an answer to your question here, then please use the Contact Us form.
The most common problems when you try to register are:
- Your web browser has cookies disabled, or you have a personal firewall (eg. ZoneAlarm) which is blocking cookies. You can read more About Cookies and how to enable them.
- Email address is empty or too short or not correct (no such address). Try again making absolutely sure that you enter your email address correctly.
- Your password is empty or not correct. You, or someone else, has used that email address to register already - so you need to Login as Existing User with that email address rather than trying to register again.
- Your name is empty or too short. The user name you choose must be at least 2 letters long.
- Your chosen name is too similar to one already used by another registered user. Please try using a different user name.
If you are still having problems using the registration, please Contact Us for further help.

There is no need to create a new account if you want to change your user name. Once you've logged in, you can change your user name to whatever you like by going to the Change User Name page. This will check if the name is available and not in use by another UKC user. User Name changes have to be verified by the moderators which happens once each day.
There is no need to have separate user names for different computers! e.g. Joe Bloggs (at work) and Joe Bloggs (at home).
If you want to use UKClimbing.com from more than one machine, then you should register first on one of the computers using your preferred email address. On the other machine you can then login with your user name or email address, but make sure that you enter the email address associated with your initial account and not the email associated with your alternative machine.
