At the opening registration page http://www.wbaduk.com/members/signup_step1.asp, you're supposed to enter your email address and hit the "Continue" button.

The "Continue" button is a Javascript button that does nothing. It does nothing in Opera10, Opera11, and Firefox.

Is wbaduk trying to force IE on people? :evil:

Use IE and it should work fine. 99% of Korean websites only work properly with IE.

I've noticed that Korean websites seem to have an IE fetish. Why they want to force it on people, though, is beyond me.

The first email address I tried didn't work, either, as it didn't get the email. :o

Although it's a bit off-topic: I can connect fine to Wbaduk on my PC, but via iPod touch, with the free ORO Baduk App, it says: invalid password. Any ideas?

The Wbaduk app is still more buggy than the current client. The login should be fixed sometime soon I guess~~~

Also I do not think they intentionally force IE on people but it is more like that Korea like many other parts in asia is Windows only territory and IE to 99% so that the developers do not care about compatibility with other browsers so much. To them it is no market to cater to.

I'm not asking them to cater to any particular browser; I'm suggesting they cater to standards. That way it doesn't matter what browser people use. The client, for example, could call a user's default browser instead of calling IE.

Its very possible that they have not added compatibility for Wbaduk users yet. Cyberoro uses separate registration systems for each version of the client. This is very annoying, and unfortunately I think it has to do with CJK Go politics, keeping people from one country from viewing content provided by the other, even if they are paying customers.

Then it sounds like the problem is probably your email provider. What are you using?

Try using something like Gmail. For me it was instant.
