Post Can't login. Help, Tom!
Got an e-mail from Acid.
Quote:
Hey man,

Could you help me out? I can't get anyone's mail address (you have to be logged in to view them) and [email protected] does not exist so I'm basically screwed.
I tried logging into the board, only ONCE, and maybe I got my password wrong (though I doubt it) but now I'm always getting the message "you have exeeded the allowed number of attempts to log in and you must enter a confirmation code as you log in" and I have to type my log in info all over again, and I get an image with a code I'm supposed to type to complete the log in, but the image is a blurry ink stain that doesn't have anything written in any language whatsoever on so I'm basically fucked caus I don't know how to retranscribe a shit looking ink stain into letters.

I tried waiting and it didn't work.
That sucks

Thanks for helping me out man, let Ken or Tom know about my little problem!
Rock on.

Add Rich to the list of people affected by this glitch. What could be wrong?

For people who are logged in and checked the "log-in automatically" thing, DON'T UNCHECK IT OR LOG-OUT. I was in school and I was so bored, I decided to check on the board (lol get it). Anyway, I tried logging in and I got the exact same thing Rich and Acid described. Seems it's a log-in issue for EVERYONE.

Help us, Big Tom. You're our only tech

I just had the exact same problem as you guys.

I'm not quite sure what caused it, but running through the "I forgot my password" thing ( ucp.php?mode=sendpassword ) fixed it for me.

I'm still going to try and figure out what caused the problem, but hopefully that should be a quick fix for you.

My email address is tom -at- racerxband.com if you need me :-)

Right, I've updated the board software too now.

If you've reset your password etc and are still having problems: drop me a line on tom -at- racerxband.com

Thanks everybody, hope I haven't missed too much action! My account had old email info so I couldn't use the send password trick to fix stuff up! I should've kept my stuff updated.

I was so impatient to get back on the board that I'm typing this from my phone. I'm totally addicted to that board dammit!

I'll go and surf offtopic right away.
