Can’t log on
Posted by plasticjunkie on Wednesday, December 05, 2018 6:26 PM

I can’t log on this site on my pc using GoogleChrome that I have been using. I went on Internet Explorer and logged on ok. I also logged on my tablet using Safari. What the heck is wrong?

Same here! Something happened after lunch time today when I opened FSM forums, I was logged out. This happens every so often, but this time it would not let me log back in. I'm good on Internet Explorer 11 and Safari, but, no go on Chrome. And yes, I cleared my cache on Chrome.

Yea that’s weird. The wife says it happens to her at work too on certain sites then it works again a day or two later.

I guess they forgot to feed the hamster.

Everytime I reboot my computer I have to log in again.

Feed the blasted hamster!

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

I got on with Bing but had to logon again. My phone won't logon no matter what I use.

This site has more problems than any other forum I visit. In fact, other forums I visit don't have any problems at all that I'm aware of. Oh well, this is still my home forum.

Ok, just tried Chrome again at work (7:50AM EST), can't login. Nor at home. Just tried Mozilla at work, and was able to login.

I can login with IE11, Safari, and Mozilla both at work and at home. Only login issue is with Chrome. Very odd.

Yea, tried again on Chrome a bit ago and nothing.Confused Other browsers work. 

The wife says it’s something at their end having to do with some kind of program update and or setting changes.

I experienced the same problem and when I tried to reset my password, I was instructed I had to re-register as a new user.

Of coarse I had a slight panic attack.

This was all in Chrome.  I opened the website in Edge and was able to log right on with no problem.  Whew!

Hey everyone! I have a work around for you. The problem has to do with old cookies, so try clearing those along with your cache. If that does not work then going into "incognito mode" should do it. Our tech team is currently working on a permanent solution. 

I'll get back to you when I hear more!

"Incognito mode" is working in Chrome.

Going incognito also works on the phone.

Very interesting Elizabeth! I did clean up the cookies but that didnt work however the incognito thing worked. So is this like the Romulan Cloaking Device? Propeller

 

Edit: Did a little more digging and discovered I was deleting a few hours worth of cookies only, I didn't notice the advance settings before and selected "all" which cleaned up the issue so it's back to normal.

Clearing cookies didn't work, but the incognito did seem to help as a band aid fix.

Edge and Bing are working normally.

Scott you may be doing the same thing I did. You need to go into the advance settings to delete all cookies and not just a few hours worth.

Couldn't get in with IE, but chrome blew right in.  At least back in for the time being to get my daily "fix".
