How do I sign up for a MetaFilter account?

Go to the New User page to read about accounts and follow the link to sign up and pay for the account. The current sign-up fee is $5 and is the only cost associated with using the site. Once the PayPal payment is completed, your account will be active and you will be allowed to post comments on various MetaFilter threads. Please note that there is a waiting period to post to MetaFilter and Ask MetaFilter.

I want an account but I don't want to use PayPal. What do I do?

There is no official way to get an account without using PayPal. You can contact the mods if you want to try to work out alternate account payment arrangements.
