Round 41 was the first round we started using a permanent user system. This means that anyone that signed up for round 41 already has a user for any future round and should not use the signup page as previously has been the case.
So for round 42 all that is needed is to log in with the email and password from last round. When you do that you'll get the option to pick a ruler/planet name and race. If you don't remember the password, you can use the "forgotten your password" link on the login page to have a new one sent.
Anyone that didn't play round 41 needs to use the signup page as normal and for any future round they get to use the "simplified" signup method mentioned above.
