CPW Registration Browser Issues

Posted in: Miscellaneous

Hi folks,

I just learned from the folks who support that certain browsers (i.e. Firefox) may not play nicely with CPW registration, which is likely why some of you have been having problems. We'll get to the bottom of that asap, but in the meantime, if you've already registered please check your MyMIT account to make sure your registration information still appears on the CPW registration page. If the registration page is blank, you'll need to re-register using Safari or Internet Explorer. (And if you haven't registered yet, please do so using one of those browsers!)

I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.

Hmmm, I used Firefox to register and it looks like it turned out fine. Maybe version or OS play a part as well? and XP Home, if anyone cares.

Making people use IE? You should be ashamed of yourself, Ben.

I'm with Evan. Internet Explorer is t3h evil.

Is much better...

Actually, I wouldn't suggest using Opera for registering for CPW either. MyMIT has mainly been tested on IE and Safari, so results aren't guaranteed on other browsers. But for web surfing it could be fine!

I just talked to my friend who got in, for linux users, things will be fine on Konqueror, he used that...

Ack, I used Firefox and I filled out the form twice through that then finally gave up and used IE (with my tail between my legs, of course).

Hey Snively my parents use Netscape! IE breaks too much for them but they don't understand my Firefox voodoo. It could be worse. Man these blogs are turning into an extension of the Facebook group.
