Getting a pretty awesome error message when I try to sign up, "group.show.other.join.secure".

Weird--I used Chrome browser, maybe try a different browser?

posted by billsaysthis at 12:11 PM on June 09

I'm using Chrome.

Tried in FF & Chrome and tried with Ad Block & Ghostery shut off. Even tried IE, God help me. Who knows.

Even tried IE, God help me.

Dude, I know it's Sportsfilter, but it's not worth it.

I set up a league for people at my office and one person has got the same error from trying to join that league :(

I did submit a support ticket but I'm not feeling positive that anything will get done in time.

So great that they only allowed signups four days before the opening kick!

I was able to join another (open) league without a problem.

I go by "IAmGrum", so I'll compare my results with this league at the end (if I remember to swap players out each round).

And now, when I enter the password (spofi2015), I get "This league is private. You must enter the password to join."

That's what I'm trying to do, you stupid....

Look on the bright side, they've fixed the glitch! I get the same message.

posted by yerfatma at 10:09 AM on June 11

OMG I am so dense, I think the password is spofi2014.

posted by billsaysthis at 12:12 PM on June 11

Same result.

posted by grum@work at 01:00 PM on June 11

Same here in terms of a message stating "This league is private. You must enter the password to join." -- using both spofi2015 and spofi2014.

No, not really.

I think you've been trying to get me to join your office league this whole time...
