Why You Should Sign Up On Drupal.org
You came for the software, so be a part of the community!
Signing up for a user account on Drupal.org is the first step to participating in the Drupal community. There are many reasons why you should sign up for a Drupal.org account, but a very compelling reason is that you will be able to see and do the following things that you can not see or do prior to registering:
- Post questions in the Drupal.org Forum.
- Report a bug in a module or theme's issue queue.
- Request new features in a module or theme.
- Report documentation errors.
- Filter modules, themes and translations by Drupal version.
Not only does this help you, but every issue, bug, or error that is reported by you and gets fixed is a benefit to the entire Drupal community!
Please note: All user accounts are for individuals. Accounts created for more than one user or those using anonymous mail services will be blocked when discovered.

If you entered the password directly, make sure you enter your password exactly as specified in the email. (The password is case sensitive.)
