Here is a list of things you should do before attempting to assemble a
nym creation message, whether by hand or using creation client
software:

+ Verify that each remailer you intend to use is working. Check the
stats pages to see how they are doing.

+ Look at the broken chains reports. Don't use remailer chains that
are known to be broken.

+ Make sure you have the current remailer keys.

+ Send yourself at least one message through each remailer you intend
to use. If you don't get them back find out why and fix the problem.

+ Once you are sure each remailer you intend to use is working
individually, decide on which ones you will use in your chain to send
your nym creation message into the nym server. Construct a chained
remailer message using these remailers with your own address as the
recipient and send it off. If it comes back, that chain is verified to
be working for you. If not, find out why or select another chain and
test again.

+ Repeat the above for the remailers you will be using for your reply
block chain. If they are the same as the ones you use above, you are
done testing.

NOW you can create your nym using automatic client software and at
least you'll know that if the nym doesn't work the problem lies
between the nym server and the first remailer in your reply block
chain, or some enhanced nym feature you selected to use is tripping
the process up somehow. Avoid using these at first until you get a
working nym, even if it is only a throwaway test nym. Then move on to
the more complex configurations.
