Impossible to register a new account?

I recommended vBulletin to a friend and he now wants to use vb.org to obviously enjoy the modifications this site has.

However the registration process does not complete, he has tried, I tried for him, it just cycles through the registration screen as if to login however no account has been created.

Is this intentional or a bug?

After completing the registration form an email is sent to the email address entered and you must follow the link in the email to verify the account.

I just checked and it seems to work for me.

What browser and operating system are you using?

Using chrome, and window 7.

I hate to sound pompous but I have been using the internet since 1999 I know how to register on a site and verify an email, it does not let me through to that stage, or indeed him.

What exactly happens when you hit the register button? If you're able to show a video or screenshot that would be immensely helpful.

I assume you mean you tested this yourself for the op and it won't work for you either?

Yes he did, as you can see I have now registered this account for my friend, it appears to be working now.

It came up eventually stating the name was in use, I picked another and it worked first time.
