Why does it say that I'm not registered? How do I register if I'm not? Why is it that everything Square does is light years beyond any definition of the word "convoluted", and far more complicated and counter intuitive than it ever needs to be?

and of course I'm registered. How could I NOT be registered if I can log in?

Ok, here's the long and short of it.

You have a SE account. For that you are registered. But, if you try to go to the ffxi website or lodestone website, they may not be SYNCED. When this happens you only need to put your SE info to go to the websites.

However, since you didn't mention exactly what it was you were trying to do, like log into a certain website etc., its hard to give you a step by step.

So, what are you trying to Register for?

Cheers!

I just want to post in their forums. Why is this such an overly complicated process?

Are you refering to the Lodestone? If so, which address are you trying to go to?

Need a little more information. What exactly is it that you're trying to do, just access The Lodestone?

Just taking a stab, but based on the error message you're getting; it sounds like you're trying to access something that requires a registered service account. Simply making a Square Enix ID won't allow you access to everything like The Lodestone website. In order to access some features, you need to have a registered service account. A service account is what you have if you have registered a copy of FFXI or FFXIV and linked that to your Square Enix ID.

Essentially, you need to have registered one of those games to be able to access the official forums.

edit: so I need to have a game registered. Gotcha. Thank you. I don't have the slightest clue why it wouldn't just say that, on the page, but ok.

That's a Legacy Lodestone. If you are not a Legacy player then you will be unable to post here.
I can only post on the new Lodestone Forum:
http://forum.square-enix.com/ARR-Test/forum.php

And this is because I was in the Beta and entered my code in SE.

In order to post there right now, you need to be one of the carried over people who were still paying when the service went down.

I have a 1.0 account, but since I didn't subscribe before it went down, I get this when logging in there:

So unfortunately, you won't have a chance to post something there under your own power.

It does say that but unless you have done the dance before, you wouldn't be able to pick that up from the way it's worded. Dealing with SE registration and billing has always been an issue. Not sure why they couldn't just say "You must have a registered copy of FFXI or FFXIV to post messages to their respective official forums" and call it a day.
