Pre-conference Community Dinner - MySQL Forge Registration

I like Arjen's suggestion of having a pre-conference community dinner and wanted to put my name. I tried to register with softwareengineer99 and got this:

This kinds of usernames usually indicate spammers. If you feel like this was in err, contact the wiki administrator.

Return to MySQLConf2008CommunityDinner.

Ok, whatever. I then tried again with a "non spammer" username and multiple email addresses but kept getting this:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "User::addToDatabase". MySQL returned error "1062: Duplicate entry '' for key 3 (localhost)".

So there seems to be an issue with MySQL Forge registration.

One of the reason to get that error message is when the "Display Name" on the "forge" has some special character (< > ;, etc)

One workaround is to delete your forge cookie, login in the forge (but not from the wiki side)
click on edit profile
and have your display name as something with only alphanumeric characters.
then you should be able to got he the wiki without any problems.

There is already a bug report about it
