    Im wondering Why cant i use an "@hotmail" email to create an account here. It said the one i tried (even after making a brand new one) was banned by an admin so i had to make a gmail account...is there any reason for this?

    It may have been alerted by the "bot cops".

    Bump. I have the same issue. I am new to the forums but can't signup with my Hotmail address that I use for my Xbox account etc. I had to create a new Gmail account to sign up and all this question. Can my Hotmail account get unbanned?

    99% of Hotmail signups is spam, unfortunately, so we had to ban the whole domain.

    As a workaround, you can sign up with Gmail and then PM me and request to have your email changed to Hotmail.
