Problems logging in...

Postby Admin » Tue Oct 07, 2008 5:09 pm

Be advised. I cleared out almost 1000 accounts last night that "technically" had no use or action. If you had never bothered to "click the link" on your original "welcome to the board" email, that means your account is gone. Reregister, and be sure to click the link this time!

Also, some FireFox users seem to be having issues logging in. I advise first to try the "lost password" feature of the board. If that does not help, email me (do not send me an IM here) with your login, password and email address, and I will look into the situation.

Close to 40,000 people on a board, and a huge upgrade. Can't have everything go smoothly. ;)

A tip for FireFox users:

When logging in, BE SURE to check the "Remember Me" box in the login area of the page (not the "Do you want me to remember this password" prompt that FireFox will display).

It's a web cookie issue. I just tried it, and checking the box worked for me in FireFox.

I was about to send you an email.... I'm on IE (public school computer) and was having trouble logging in. I think I've got it straightened out now, though...

Clearing cookies might help fix the issue for those having trouble also.

We have IE7 on our pc and not firefox, IE 7 seems to have the same problem as firefox on our pc. We have to tick the remember button to logon to the forum.

Thanks for the "remember me" tip. That made it work for me now.
