Sorry for not getting to this any sooner. Bugs on localize.m.o go into the verbatim component, moving this there.

Remko, if this is still an issue, mind giving us a ping again?

Password reset email is working. But my account remains inactive that way and I have no way of activating the account.

So you don't get the warning 'That e-mail address doesn't have an associated user account. Are you sure you've registered?' when you try to reset your password?

Pike, who can look into the user database to remove his email so he can register again?

I don't find anything helpful in the UI, maybe gandalf or stas can help.
I got a report about this, website displays this after registering:

Error de Servidor

Un error ha occurrido. Gracias por su paciencia.

Yes, this regressed in general when the VM moved datacenters, not everything in bug 721591 is back to where it should be.
Depends on: 721591

This might as well be a regression of the bug 702587
