How much does gaming cost at Dragon Con?

I received an error message when I tried to sign up for a Dragon Con Online Gaming Registration (OGR) account. Additional attempts to sign up again result in an error message indicating that my email address already has an account associated with it. However, when I try to login, I am told the password is incorrect, and when I use the Forgot Password feature, I am told that a notification cannot be sent. Can you help?
In most cases, the core problem is that the OGR account was never created but some piece of logic does not properly recognize that. However, there appear to be other causes of this problem, so we recommend several possible fixes, listed below. If these do not fix your problem, please contact Gaming Registration (gamingregistration@dragoncon.org).
