Hello, I'm not sure that I am registered at rubygems, so I started by filling out the Sign up form, but when I submit it I get an "email already been taken" validation error. After I got that error I went to the "Forgotten Password" form and enter the same email that I used at sign up, but I get a "Uknown email" error, so now I can't Sign in neither Sign up. Can someone help me out please!?

Thanks in advance

    What browser? I'm not seeing an existing user with your email or username. Could you try again on a different browser?

    I've tried on:

    - IE 8 - Chrome

    - Chrome - Safari - Firefox

    I used the email [email blocked] and the handle chinog9

    Thanks but I still need help with this problem

    The reason you're getting email has already been taken is because the user Chinog9 exists with [email blocked] . Try resetting your password with the capitalized email.
