First, Choose A Username

Your username:

  • Can be up to 16 characters long.
  • Can contain numbers, hyphens, and lower case letters.
  • Can not begin or end with a hyphen.

The username you choose will identify you to other dm.net members, and will be used as your e-mail address (username@dm.net) if you select e-mail options below. Your username will also be used as the address for your personal web site and DM member's newsgroup, if you choose either of these options below.

Please note that the username you select may be modified when we set up the account to make sure it meets DM's system requirements. Most often, this means that we'll convert the username you select to all lower case letters.

Enter the username you'd like to use, then press "Check Name" to see if that name is available:


When you've found a username you like that isn't already in use, enter it in the space below. Then enter a password. Then enter the password a second time to confirm.
