login/ account?

Hi Folks

I’ve been trying to log into the gitlab for bug reporting purposes.

I suspect my bitwarden had been using the same login as works for here, but I can’t tell - all I get when I try to login is the reasonable familiar: ‘Invalid login or password.’ That’s whether I try the login email I would expect in the form or

When I try to set up a new account, I get the following - whether I use an email address with an ‘+’ or not - cryptic error:

Are emails used for the community forum prohibited for gitlab? Or, perhaps I’m being prevented from creating a new account with the same credentials as an old gitlab account - in which case, why can’t I login in the first place?

Any ideas?

It would be helpful, if this guide is linked in the error message. Or the main information, that for private mail addresses it is necessary to contact the helpdesk. I ran into the same issue.

Why not just paste the helpful information where it would be helpful - the account creation dialogue…?
