Log in issues

Post by Bill Elliott » Fri Jul 19, 2019 4:28 pm

Has anyone else had to re-register in order to use the forum??? I have been posting to this site for a long time now, using the same user name and password. However, yesterday I was unable to log in using my former user name. I know the site has been hacked in the past and everyone else was having issues using the forum yesterday, so I followed the instructions to clear my browsing cache as instructed. But I was still not able to log in with my username. So I had to re-register today using another user name and a different email - very frustrating. Anyone else with similar woes???

Ok, I'm about to show my stupidity to all; I finally figured out why I was unable to log in yesterday; my laptop saved a VERY old and outdated username for this forum instead of the one I registered with when the new forum opened. So every time I tried logging in, it was correctly telling me that I was using an incorrect username. But my hazy brain saw the old login name and password and was convinced it was correct! It wasn't until I opened my old post and saw the correct username that I was using that I realized my mistake. My apologies to Jeff for all the confusion. And I can't even blame it on old age, as I'm not even in my sixth decade yet! The eighties were a hoot.

I blame the eighties on all kinds of things... always a good scapegoat. And if I didn’t have to deal with the after effects of having a stroke, I might still be doing things I was doing in the eighties. As it is now, I’m likely to live a good long time 😳

I can not open the classified parts or 2019 Forum sections on my lap top. Followed instructions re-logging in with new assigned password. Still no luck. But I can access everything on my mobile phone? I am totally confused and understand why my kids call me "technologically deficient"!!! Help. I can be reached via forum or email: astein.pls@gmail.com
