I tried the "forgot password" link and tried both the e-mail address and user name options; neither of these resulted in an e-mail sent to my Gmail account to reset my password. So, I’m stuck in a loop and cannot establish an account here. I’m not a web neophyte; I’ve established user names on many different sites. Thanks!
I chose the option to use Google to sign in. The site asked me to select a user name; I did. The site sent me a verification e-mail to my Gmail account. I got the e-mail and clicked on the link. That took me to the sign-in page. At no point did it ask me to create a password. I tried choosing a new password; I tried my Google password; and I tried logging in with Google. Nothing worked.
