Password input?

Recommended Posts

I don't know maybe it's just me but I seem to be having to input my password all the time. Just now I was logged on and I clicked on a post and it asked for my password. Doesn't it mean when you check the box remember my password to remember my password? Or is this just so people can't get access to the site by repeatedly asking for your password?............

Phenom, As I recall from other boards if you have blocked or deleted the cookie(s) for this board it doesn't matter fwhat you have checked. :D

I reported the same problem here and am still having the problem. I don't really buy into the cookie theory as my cookies work everywhere else.

 

I have noticed that it does not seem to occur unless I have multiple Explorer sessions open.

I am getting it both at work and at home ... and I know I am not behind a firewall or proxy server at home ...

I actually know I am not putting any restraint on my cookies. It was just a thought. I have twice tonight had the dialog box jump in when I was moving from topic to topic and "want" my password. I am pretty sure that will turn out to be a coding problem at this board. It seems who ever monitors this lashup doesn't get around to business real regular. They ask for inputs here and when they get them they seem to be a little less than responsive. :confused:

Not to pile on, but recently I've been getting the request to input my password when visiting different posts or boards. My cookies are enabled and there's no firewall.

I was getting the password request box multiple times navigating between posts yesterday at work. Yes behind a firewall but this only started happening yesterday. I have had no occurances at home.

Same here, randomly sometimes I can go a day or so and then it'll happen 2 or 3 times...............

On the other side, this is the first time in a week that I can actually get in here.

One thing that is really odd is that intermittently throughout the day I will be prompted for the password and then immediately prompted for it again.

I've recently started to have this problem as well. It's somewhat random for me. I'll reply to 4-5 posts without a problem, then on the 6th one, I'll get prompted. Annoying, but I haven't experienced any lockout problems - it takes my pw and lets me in...

Well, I posted this problem in the other post at the forum support board. Not sure what is causing it...but it is quite annoying...

We are aware of this problem and our password management company should have a fix installed on Monday. I won't bore you with the gory details but it has to do with how the program handles adds to the file.

Wow I hope this is fixed soon...

 

I have found though that if I hit cancel, then page back to the previous screen once the failed authorization message comes up, it goes through.

Blitz this happens to me all the time. What I have to do is reenter my username too and the password then it will let me in. Put I am also having problems with getting this password thing to come up alot. Came in here to ask about it. Nice to know I am not the only one having the problem
