Bug Logins broken? Don't log out

  1. May 19, 2011 #1
    logins broken? Don't log out!!!!!

    Maybe I'm just stupid, but logins currently seem to be broken. I can log in by making a new account and visiting the URL given in the email. However, if I log out of that account and then try to log back in, I get an error message saying I'm over my quota of failed logins, and I should try again in 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, it still doesn't work.

    Yep, I had that too. I only tried to log in once (the first time) and it came up.

    Just restarted and it worked though.

    Yes, there is a problem. I suggest that no one log out if you plan to come back to PF before the problem is fixed.

    We can post here when the problem is fixed. Disregard any e-mails telling you to reset your password to avoid more problems.

    Yeah (was actually for another issue, but solved both).

    It came up saying I'd tried to many times (all of once) and so I just closed the browser and then restarted and I had to log in again, but it went straight through.

    Please send me an e-mail when this gets fixed. I can't login with my real name and had to make up this absurd replacement name. Once it is fixed you can disolve this bogus membership as I only created it for the purpose of submitting this single post.

    How can we send you an e-mail if we have no way of guessing who you are?

    I just installed another browser (FF update crashes on 7x64) and I couldn't log in either! I had to open FF which is "remembered".

    This didn't bother me, as I'm always logged in. PF will never escape my vile clutches.

    Yay, you're back!!! Thank Greg, he's working on a permanent fix. Until he says it's all fixed, you might not want to log out.

    Yeah I can login now. BTW was this problem in any way related to the mathjax testing that was going on ?
