[aur-general] Not able to register with the AUR site

Able to register now. This is the message, I get after the register page

The account, *<username>*, has been successfully created.
A password reset key has been sent to your e-mail address.

Following the link in the mail takes me to a password reset page, where I
can set a new password and am able to login with these credentials now.

This whole workflow seems wrong. Why should a person be directed to a
password reset page when he is registering a new account? I already have an
account at Arch Wiki with the same credentials. Do both AUR and the wiki
use the same accounts? Is this why my new account registration request at
AUR was actually considered as a password change request?
