My Problem, by Algolei ( 10:36:07 SatFeb 15 2003 )

I was Algolei, but then I got logged out and my password wouldn't work. My password was sent to me so I could log back in, but it still didn't work.

So then I became Algolei's Alternate Login Name. But I got logged out again. And my password doesn't work again.

Now I'm Third Algolei.

Help me, somebody! Ivellios Nailo, Arturick, Josh_Kablack, Medesha!! ANYBODY!! I wanna be just plain Algolei again!! :freakedout:

:pout:

What kind of computer and browser are you using?

Hurmh, unexpected question.... :odd: :idea: Some kind of acursed IBM cloney thingy (thus having the much-hated Windows forced upon me) and the dreaded Internet Explorer.

I've had my temporary internet files erased several times in the last nine months due to various antivirus programs, so I figured that was my problem.

But why wouldn't my passwords still be valid? :ohwell:

What happens when you try and log in? Does it say your password is invalid, does it give you some other error message, does it just sit there or does it make a quiet, vaguely sinister chuckling noise?

And I can log in with Third Algolei still, so I don't think it's my ever decreasing IQ doing this to me.

Here, check out this email I received way back on November 4th, when my original problem logging in as Algolei began:

Quote:

Hello Algolei
Your password is: auzBKNp
You can log in at http://bb.bbboy.net


This was, of course, my original Algolei password, as you can see from this earlier message dated July 09 2002:

Quote:

Thank you for registering for Best Boards!

Here is your username and password:

Username: Algolei
Password: auzBKNp


Having it sent to me a second time did not help me to log in, so I made up Algolei's Alternate Login Name.

But then that password stopped working for me, too.

Now I'm Third Algolei (and when I logged out to see the error message I got trying to log in as Algolei, I thought for sure I'd be coming back as 4lgolei :wink: ).

So, can you log in as Algolei? :confused: I know I sure can't! But I want to. :sad:

Hey, hon... There's this cute little tag in the lower right of your post that has an option called "Delete Post." Unlike the WotC boards, no one ever need know you poly-posted!!

This is what the guys at Tech Support told me:

Quote:

I am betting his history is set to a low number of days. That will delete your cookies and temporary net files for pages in history that reach that limit of days and are deleted. I think that if Algolei uses the 'Lost Password' link and logs in using it successfully they won't have this trouble again. There has to be some minor mistake in the password he is using or else that error would not come up. If he is copying and pasting he has to be sure there is no spaces accidentily picked up in the copy. OR if he is typing it in make sure he isn't using a capital 'o' when it calls for a zero '0'. I resent the password on the Algolei name just now, so have them try to log in using that and see if that doesn't help.


Try that, and if it doesn't work, I'll bug them some more.

...I resent the password on the Algolei name just now....


I had to read that four times before I realized he didn't resent my password at all, but rather had re-sent it. :rotfl: Although considering the nasty word it turned out to be, it is possible he did resent it. :embarrassed:

Btw, my password was completely different from the one I've been trying for the last few months. My mind is boggled. :freakedout: :odd: :nonono: I have never seen this password before in my life. If I changed it to that, I must have been having a psychotic episode--and darn, I don't remember it! :happy:

But all's well that ends well.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Aw shucks, it was just the modly thing to do. :happy:

May I suggest changing your password to somthing easy to remember? Might stop it from going whacko on you.
