Your form action is incomplete. It needs to be in the format:

"orion asd",
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the servlets forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here
