So, I decided to go ahead and create me a LAVA account... and it seems to be busted. The "Create my Account" button on the "Sign Up" popup appears to do nothing. Looking at it, there appears to be a reCaptcha site error.
I've tried it with Crome, Edge, and Internet Explorer to make sure it wasn't a browser issue.
Has anyone success making a LAVA account recently?
Well, I posted a thread here, so that might help, although a tweet to Mike might be more effective - https://lavag.org/topic/20841-problems-creating-account/
