Unable to log in as exceeded the maximum amount of logins??

Post by MrsEss » Mon Feb 14, 2011 9:57 am

When I went to log in this morning, twice that message came up & I had to type a sequence of letters & numbers just to get on to the board. My UN & PW are saved on my laptop, so it's not like I'd put them in incorrectly.

I know it happened to Monique yesterday too.

Haha I suppose it's a possibility (for some of us, at least) but I think its very unlikely. It would probably be the least effectual hack in history, I mean what could they do? Post a few things that may cause an issue, or use bad grammar in somebody else's name. And snoop through a few PMs which would mean, in my case, they would realise just how much of my sad little existence is devoted to discussion of crochet hooks. Its hardly going to bring about the collapse of the internet haha.

I'm guessing that any concerted attempt to hack an individual account would be visible to the Admins, if not the mods.

It might help if you clear out your cookies. Sometimes a corrupted file or whatever can cause weird errors like that.

Mine were cleared on Saturday. Before that though I hadn't done if for a super long time & never had an issue logging in.

I don't get it. If it is a cookie issue, why did it let me log yesterday without a hiccough? PLUS doesn't it seem weird that we'd exceed the amount of logins when we'd all cleared our cookies a day or so before the issue?

Surely, given that a few of us have experienced the same problem over a similar timescale, it suggests there was something going on with the login function?

I'm always logged in automatically , but after clearing my cookies I had to re-enter my info - thats when it happened .
I think its fine now though . I've logged in & out a few times just to see if it happened again .


Seems we were the only 3 people with issues , and we all cleared our cookies over the weekend :lol:

I wonder if that's because you're signing on from a "non-regular" IP address. I remember having a similar issue when logging on at school.
