    Most forums work like this these days, including registering on some news paper sites just so you can leave a comment etc. Some as you say seem to require a silly amount of information.

    Assuming the site is working properly it's obvious that you have to fill in some specific information field they insist on you filling, all you can do is to re-check it over again carefully. It may be that the information you are entering in to one of the fields is being rejected for some reason. ie. Not Valid format or something like that.

    Personally I rarely leave any bonafide information which relates to myself on any of the forums, never my true age, date of birth, or anything else for that matter. If they insist on an address I will leave a bogus one, same with other contact details and I always use a generic email address such as yahoo which also was signed up with false details but can be accessed. If I have to give an address in order to receive anything from forums I use the address of another property I own or a friends, but rarely my own home address.
    Probably a little paranoid perhaps, but I cannot see the point of assisting anyone to scam you. (Not that forums are out to scam you, but there are others) What makes me smile is the number of people who use their full names as part of their email adresses, silly IMO... in todays world anyway. It's possible to even spoof your IP address so a different one is broadcast.

    Just fill the fields in with any old rubbish, some sites may want a genuine post code, say to setup a email account, in which case just pick one out of the phone book. AIS check over all the signup input fields again, and if your 100% sure its been filled in correct and it still does'nt work then a email to the sites admin team is the only solution.
