Is there a glitch in the board login?
« on: September 16, 2020, 09:32:57 PM »
It seems like all of a sudden I am having login issues here. As soon as I log in, I get booted off the site. I can browse it fine without being logged in. Then at the bottom, it shows me being logged in but I have to log in again to post ... when I do bling, I'm booted off.

Hmmm - this is news to me because I haven't experienced anything like it today (or ever) - and I've made many posts today. I honestly don't know what to say other than obviously that shouldn't be happening. But you already know that, and it's of little help to you.

Let's see if others respond with the same problem. Or if it disappears for you on its own. Who can forget the very bizarre flashing back of time that many members, including myself, experienced several months back? That just up and disappeared as strangely as it began, though not without causing quite a bit of annoyance, not to mention without any explanation. But then, I've often said that the forum is haunted...  [ghost_wink]

I have not experienced any problems but I generally remain logged in.

It's still acting weird. Normally I go to the site from my bookmark thru Google. I keep getting kicked out after logging in and back to a Google search page. Then I  can go back to the site ok ...at the bottom it says I am logged in - at the top it says I am not .Decided to try going thru yahoo and this time it worked like normal. It logged me in and the page stayed put. Beats me.

It seems like the only way I can get in after I log in and get booted is to go back to the main page and click a random recent post. When I do that it does show me as logged in at the top and I can then reply without being booted. Yahoo and Google don't seem to make a difference after all. Double weird. Guess I may have to lurk for awhile and see if this sorts out.

Still haven't figured out what is going on. It still boots me off the page as I log in. I work thru a tablet and never had this problem before. If it is a virus, I would have problems with multiple other sign ins - but this is the only site that it is doing that. Trying to figure out a workaround. It seems the best way is when I go back to the page, if I click a recent post, sometimes it considers me logged in like normal. I can then click and post wherever and not get kicked out til I log out as usual. But sometimes it takes multiple times of logging in to be able to do that. So I hope it does eventually go away. Like you say MB, maybe the site does have spooks. Otherwise, can pull the site up and view everything - it's just the glitch in logging in and is frustrating.

Me either no problems, maybe just internet being slow.

Well MB, maybe you are right about the site being haunted. Have tried logging in a few different times today and all is well. So far haven't been booted off once. Hopefully the spooks have left. Lol.
