Couldn't get on the site with the office computer (Win10/Chrome) at all last week even after taking all of Ms. Nash's advice. Saturday got on with no issues with my laptop (Win7/Pale Moon). Then Monday tried to get on with the office computer and had no issues at all. 

So darned if I know...

Doing a complete cashe and cookie clear did it for me on Safari, I.E., and Chrome. Took a little longer to login the first time but everything works.

I had a conversation with John Eaton, he suggested it was a fix needed at FSM end. That seems to be what cleared it up.

Just a thought... I am a subscriber to FSM magazine hard copy. A least one member who could not log on was not a subscriber.  Any comments or thoughts?

Hello!

Finally I'm back! First I have cleared some of the cookies and cache - that didn't do it for me, still couldn't log in. Then I went for a business trip and today I got back and logged in with no problems! So I guess FSM finally patched the bug...

Other than that - their site really wasn't safe, some time ago I got an e-mail trying to blackmail me, they insisted they knew my email and the password to that, just that it was my email and password for the fsm forum here... I say it's entirely possible some hackers targeted FSM because of their poor security, that could also cause problems with logging in.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day

Paweł

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

I'm a hard copy subscriber and I can't get in on Chrome. I'm currently using IE and Edge. I can also use incognito on Chrome to get in but as has been pointed out it's a PIA.

That’s irrelevant. Anybody can join the FSM forums whether you’re a subscriber to the magazine or not.

I've stayed logged in on my home computer, but I thought I'd try logging in at work, just to see if the problem still exists.  I wasn't able to log in either, so something is still a problem.

Well looks like this forum is not the only one that has tec trouble. Just went over to Scalemates and their software has crashed. Technology for ya.

Couldn't get on for a while but the other day I tried by going to the forum page before logging on and it worked on the third try. Using the same method I logged on today on the first try. Haven't done anything about any "cookies". Can't use all the sugar anyway.Wink

Yeah, today is the first time in several weeks that I've been able to log in.  I tried the workarounds and none of them worked, for any browser, but today it works again.
Go figure.
