Ok. False alarm. It was an issue with my browser settings. All is good - now I can browse to see what all the fuss is about.
I am having the same problem as you had. I made an account last night and got on just fine and looked around for a few min.
When I went back about a half hour later I wasn't able to login or make a new account. I just got the try again page( I know I used the right info ) and registration is temporally
disabled. I thought that maybe the site was just down, but once I saw your post say it was a settings issue with the browser I went and made a few settings changes in tor, no luck.
Just wondering what exactly you had to do to get on?
