Whatever it is, it's not about "coding"

Whose leg do I have to hump to get a Facebook developers forum account?

How does one go about registering for the Facebook developer forum?

Filling out the form

Produces “Could not open socket” error in Chrome and Firefox.

Facebook Connect

On the register screen there is a Facebook Connect option, but this does nothing in Chrome, and does not appear at all in Internet Explorer.

Firefox does produce the window, so I select yes or whatever but then I can still not sign in.

Then I ask for my password to be sent, only to be told there is no account for my address.

Okay, then I think perhaps I don’t need to sign in to access the forum. I sign in to facebook and revisit: still can’t do anything but read posts.

In other news

Interestingly I do have punBB listed on my Application settings screen.

  2. No. I tried IE, FF & Chrome on Windows. Next I’ll try it on a Mac.

  3. I just tried. No luck. Same result. This is so frustrating.
