Well I just attempted to sign up for Reddit and had an interesting experience to say the least.
Step 1, Click on the Login Or Register link, and the top of the popup page tells me
Ok, I thought that’s what I was trying to do!
Step 2, Select a username. This seems harder than you might think as you can see below.
Step 3, fill in Capture and Click Create Account, That’s all there is to it right? Apparently no
I finally got in (after closing the register box and trying it again a few times) with the username IsThisRedditUsernameTaken, apparently it was not!
I think these guys need to take a little look at their user experience.
