Getting an error message in new ID creation on /e/OS Gitlab?
- Some users may get an error message, while attempting to create a new ID on the /e/OS Gitlab
- The error message may ask you to contact the site administrator.
- In case you run into such an error, please send a mail with the details of the ID you wish to create and the mail ID you got the error on, to email@example.com
- Let us explain the reason behind this error. Some time back we had an issue with a large number of dummy IDs swamping our servers. As a preventive measure we now allow registrations from a limited number of email domains. Users wanting to register with their private email address or say their Gmail address, can send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will create an account for them.
