Trouble Signing New Members


We have a number of folks who want to sign up . . . but they've not been able to.

I have added their emails to Blogger (just as with all of you); and their 'Invitations' get to them (just like you got yours). But when they use their invitations to 'join us' they get the following message from Blogger:

We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.

When reporting this error to Blogger Support or on the Blogger Help Group, please:
  • Describe what you were doing when you got this error.
  • Provide the following error code and additional information.

Find help

See if anyone else is having the same problem: Search the Blogger Help Group for bX-b0uqh3
If you don't get any results for that search, you can start a new topic. Please make sure to mention bX-b0uqh3 in your message.

This is a problem . . . has anyone else encountered this? If so, how did you overcome it? I'm certainly NOT a very 'technical-type'. I'm not a nerd . . . so I haven't been able to help these new fellows join.

Can you help?

Poking through the Blogger help group, a lot of people seem to be having success by logging into Blogger first, *then* clicking the invitation link. If they don't have a blogger account, they apparently need to complete at least step 1 of the blogger sign up before clicking the link as above.

Aha! We have had a success. John's wife Amy writes:

"Guess what?? I kept playing around and I finally managed to sign John onto your blog (by changing the password on our blogger account)."

So perhaps this points the way to a solution. I will forward this to the others.

Blog set-up apparently limits authors to 100. perhaps this is not germane given the previous comment.

A good idea, thanks. But we are just over 50 members . . . nowhere near 100 . . . and it is something that I'd already checked . . . but I've overlooked things before so I'm glad that you mentioned it.
