Anybody else having log-in problems?

For the past couple of days I've been unable to log in in Firefox or Chrome but MSIE8 still worked. Trying to fix that, I deleted all the Sailnet cookies "just in case" and that hasn't helped at all. In fact, when I try to log in using MSIE, I get a VBulletin FAILURE message telling me that my username or password is bad:
"You have entered an invalid username or password. Please press the back button, enter the correct details and try again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here! "

Which is bogus, because at the same time that the forum gives me that error message, the status window above/right of it also welcomes me by name, tells me about notifications, and if I move to another page, I'm logged in.

Despite the forum software telling me I can't be.

In Chrome and Firefox I get the same error message--but the forum isn't recognizing me at all.

This has all happened in the last couple of days, and just with Sailnet. Am I the only one?

Re: Anybody else having log-in problems?

YES!!! I have the same issues on chrome/mac.

says I'm logged out. If I click ANY link it logs me in.

If I try to login is says failure but logs me in anyway.

if I enter a bogus password it gives a different failure but then also logs me in anyway.

AND, when I click the icon on the left of the thread to view the new posts it takes me to the first post of the thread. If i then click the 'view first unread' link that works as expected.

I reported it a few weeks ago but so far no action taken

Re: Anybody else having log-in problems?

Using Chrome/PC at work and Mac/Firefox at home, no issues. I did see similar symptoms some time back using a laptop & wifi with Ubutu.. but that too passed..

I'll report the post to admin, maybe they'll have ideas...
