I am trying to register a friend on BBO and it seems there is no combination of letters and numbers that is available. Any suggestions?

Try Vaccinate. I think that will work. But when BBO asks for your email address, be sure to put it your friend's email address. Bear in mind that you will also have to enter a password; therefore you will have to notify your friend what his/her password is. S/he will receive an email that s/he will have to acknowledge before s/he can log in.

Yes, I know all that. Thanks. I have done it before for the more hapless of my relatives!

This worked, but why? How did you find it?

Nothing has changed regarding registration. I guess you just weren't creative enough with the names you tried, and they were all taken.

I tried quite a few random collections of letters and numbers. You try it.

I just did, and it didn't seem too bad. Just pick any old word and a random number, altering the number until it works. For example, vampyr1 works, as does banana7; for more common words try random numbers, eg bridge8423 works - though less common words would be easier.

(And don't use your pin number ;))

"Vaccinate" just came to mind; I don't know why. So I did a search for "Vaccinate" and there were no matches; therefore I assumed it would work.
