Every attempt i've made to log in to the Partner Portal has met with an error, and i've had to manually delete the modal window just to get to it. After that, everything seems to work.
I don't have a web design company. I'm a freelancer. And since the option exists (apparently) to change whatever fictitious name I come up with later, I don't know why 1) it even has to be there and 2) it never seems to work.
