Pain In The MySpace

Honestly, I’ve been trying to register an account on MySpace for someone for the last hour with an email address, trying varying rotations of their home country, language selection, password and their idiotic captcha (which doesn’t offer plaintext or audio support) and EVERY time I’m left with

We’re sorry. Based on the information you have submitted to us, you are ineligible to register on

You’d think they were just trying to stop people signing up. Too many members…

Update: over 3 hours since I’ve started, I’ve been able to register. MySpace registration downtime? No alerts within the site itself from what I could see…

    Indeed, far too many dicks on there 🙂

  2. Ken McGuire March 25, 2007 at 8:54 pm

    Guess I’m included in that bunch already…..


  3. Guido March 25, 2007 at 9:38 pm

    I guess you will have to keep trying!!! lol

    I agree, ive been trying to make a myspace account for ages and everytime it says We’re sorry. Based on the information you have submitted to us, you are ineligible to register on it’s ridiculous! im going to keep trying though. how did u get urs to work?

  5. Ken McGuire April 11, 2007 at 7:43 am

    Patience…. just kept going back to fill out the form over a 3 hours period, eventually it went through! Switched browsers but it made no difference at all…

  6. Tony April 11, 2007 at 7:51 am

    thx i’ll try tat. F**k i really want to get myspace! i posted my last comment 2 hours ago and it’s still saying the same thing!


  7. Ken McGuire April 11, 2007 at 7:58 am

    It is a bad site for that, all these technical errors where you’re assured that your problem has been forwarded to the MySpace technical team yet you don’t know whats going on at all! Keep trying though…. or just walk away, make a coffee, and come back again 🙂

  8. Tony April 11, 2007 at 8:33 am

    OMG, it is still f**ked!. how do i fix it

  9. Ken McGuire April 11, 2007 at 8:57 am

    You got me there… I just played the waiting game after filling out the stupid form and captcha way too many times for my liking, eventually it got through.

  10. Tony April 11, 2007 at 8:59 am

    hey, um… wat country did u say u were? at the bottom where it say Canada(english, USA

  11. Ken McGuire April 11, 2007 at 9:07 am

    He he… I tried them all. Did a Canadian registration, UK registration, Irish registration….

  12. Tony April 11, 2007 at 9:23 am

    hey! thx for all ur help it worked! mind u it was after 4 hours of labouring over the computer and then finally switching to another computer.
    but thx

  13. Ken McGuire April 11, 2007 at 9:31 am

    No problem at all, glad you got it sorted, its a sure pain in the arse!

  14. Angela G. July 18, 2007 at 4:35 am

    mmm… iv been trying for the last freaken bloody 5 hours and 2 min and i still dont got my space i dont know what to do?

  15. Ken McGuire July 18, 2007 at 9:33 am

    I guess the only thing you can do is be patient. I’d wonder if those ‘technical errors’ actually ever do get reported.

  16. Millie August 9, 2007 at 7:54 pm

    I’m guessing no, since it’s August and the same error message keeps coming up when I try to register a site for my store. Arrgh!

  17. Kathleen August 15, 2007 at 9:37 am

    man oh man i’m having the EXACT same problem… at first I thought I was doing something stupidly wrong… THANK GOODNESS I found others are having the same frustrating problem.

    This is a joke. I’m heading to facebook. haha.

  18. April August 26, 2007 at 11:33 pm

    I’ve been trying for 24 hours, and I still can’t create a myspace account for my daughter. I even tried to create one for me, and it give me the same F*?kin error.

    I wish they would just fix the damn thing.

  19. jose October 31, 2007 at 11:01 pm

    i have trying to make a myspace accaunt and it does not let me why.

  20. Ken McGuire November 1, 2007 at 12:34 am

    I tried again at the weekend and ran into the same problem. I wound up registering with Canada as my country, entered a Toronto zip code I found online, registration was accepted and once logged in I changed my location no problem.

    Roundabout way of creating an account but it worked no problem.

  21. Tommy Lee November 24, 2007 at 3:41 am

    Well it didn’t work for me…

  22. Dirk January 24, 2008 at 11:47 pm

    HELP ME. i am having the same problem. o have tried everything everyone said but still NOTHING!!

  23. Ken McGuire January 25, 2008 at 8:51 am

    Wait until you get in – there’s no getting out.

  24. Kelsey January 26, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    I tried many times to make myself a new account while using firefox as my browser. I switched over to internet explorer and it worked no problem.
    myspace is always screwed up

  25. Thomas Morlion March 15, 2008 at 11:28 am

    Firefox didn’t let me sign up, IE did. Stupid Myspace.

  26. ARigney May 4, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    I seem to be having the same problem, tried several email addresses but none of them work! Having to use Firefox as the IE on my mac is f*?!*d up – damn MySpace!

  27. ashley May 6, 2008 at 5:34 am

    I’m having the same problem… I don’t understand why its saying that! I’ve used a different email address and everything

  28. Price Vixen May 8, 2008 at 8:29 pm

    I had the same problem with Youtube, finely afetr half a year i got in. Dont know how, but i think it was because i needed to make a account with google, because youtube and myspace are powered by google. I made an account there and all of a sudden they let me in. But yesterday i wanted to get in myspace again so i login to google,and go back to myspave but it said,We’re sorry. Based on the information you have submitted to us, you are ineligible to register on Ahhhhh! i give up! well not really i’m not i giver upper, but it is getting to be the point where i might give up! i will still keep trying, like i did with Youtube. So dont give up, People!

    I hate this i’ve tried for days but nothing works can somebody help me i really want a myspace

  30. LaTisha June 10, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    Myspace sometimes flags users who they think might be lying about their age or registered sex offenders. Myspace gives you 24 hours usually, sometimes more. If you put in the same info, it will just keep blocking you. If you change it, it will usually let you in. If you continue to attempt signing up, it will just keep blocking you. Myspace says you’re IP address for 24 hours, so don’t try signing up for a while, unless you decide to sign up with another computer. Hope I helped!

  35. Bryan July 24, 2008 at 4:26 am

    Well, I’ve been trying to get a Myspace account using my gmail account and it keeps rejecting it with that dumb message. I wonder if certain email providers are a red flag with them?

    WOOOT! it actually WORKED!!!

  43. O January 6, 2009 at 1:03 am

    I had the same problem. I think it’s b/c MySpace identifies your IP address (or some other significant information of yours) as already being linked to a myspace. To prevent you from creating several pages they block your Ip from being able to create an account.

  44. Chase March 12, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    how did you get it to work

  45. Booker May 31, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    Try switching browsers. Firefox didn’t work for me. Safari did. Good luck.

    p.s. myspace sucks anyway

  46. tracy June 17, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    it wont let me in i tried it for days

  47. Jack July 31, 2009 at 1:40 am

    Chances are you’re under the required age for Myspace. If you go back and try changing your age and trying again, it still won’t work because it’s saved the cookies and such. Delete your cookies (go to Internet Options, or something of that sort depending on your computer and browser) then try again, being sure to use an age over the requirement the first time.

  48. will August 5, 2009 at 3:34 pm

    I used Safari and got in straight away after hours of trying on Mozilla.

    Hope it helps.

  49. JoeyJ September 26, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    tried for ages with firefox, kept denying. Opened up opera, tried it, 1st time!!

  50. arieyel November 13, 2009 at 11:16 pm
