Hi! Some first impressions from registering and setting up my profile. These options have inconsistent capitalization and could use an "other" option if you're going to make it mandatory. "Source" should also be called something like "How did you hear about us?"

It seems strange that the display name wouldn't accept spaces - perhaps it should say that up front. 

I found a strange option in the list of countries while setting up my profile. 

 I noticed that the default sex was "male" - would be better if it were neutral to start.

Hi Sarah,

We aren't able to allow spaces in the display name, but we think we fixed everything else. Please let us know what you think.

Nice - I just registered as another name to test it out. Everything looks good to me except the "Type/Choose how you found us" - it's phrased a little unconventionally and suggests to the user that they can type in their own option. I still propose "How did you find us?" as the prompt for that field and for "other" to be added as an option. Also I think we need one more "r" in "referral." I suggest not using all caps because it made me question what "search" meant. I liked the original option of "Search Engine."


Also, this was not in my original suggestion but I tend to prefer "Last Name" to "Surname" on forms like this.

"Type/Choose how you found us" is fine, because you can either type or choose. If you type and it isn't recognized, you will be given the option of choosing "other", then you can type in the field that appears. Many people have already done this, so evidently it's clear. "Other" also exists on the list of options, you may just need to scroll down to see it depending on your browser. Imo all caps are fine, but we will fix the "referral" typo.
