Difficulty logging in

Post by EaglesOwntheSky » Fri Mar 22, 2019 4:42 pm

Lately, the Red Zone has been rejecting my logins across many devices. When I click "reply to topic" it will ask me to login. When I put in my user information, I get a long load time and it is almost as if the page has refreshed instead of logging me in. I get no error message.

I have had failure logging in from the main page, from replying to a thread, and from entering through the registration link.

My workaround was clicking on a user profile, being asked to log in to view the profile, and then hitting the information. I am not sure why this workaround got me in while the other do not, but there you have it.


The failures have occurred on my two personal computers, my mobile device, and both of my work computers.

Update:

The workaround isn't when I click a profile. I just got booted and tried logging in that way and it didn't work.

The actual workaround is clicking "Remember Me" seems to keep me logged in. Otherwise, I will be booted immediately upon login.

Happened to me couple of weeks ago...same thing.
Ranger sent me $10 and said deal with it and then it worked. Also ask Ranger for stock pics.
Actually tried getting ahold of someone and was unsuccessful then it just worked

I'll look into this further. I've had other reports

Is this issue any better for anyone. I've made some adjustments to see if it helps

I just tried logging in and had the same result.

When I logged in without clicking "Remember me", I got the "You must log in in order to reply to this topic" response. Almost as if I had refreshed the page.

When I logged in while clicking "Remember me", I had no issues.

Just a theory, but this forum has never really supported me being logged into multiple devices. Usually if I log into a new device, it will kick off the old device. This has essentially made the "Remember Me" button ineffective for me, as I am logging in from several devices and the Remember Me won't keep me logged in multiple devices. This is why I was locked out for a week with this new error, as I did not think to click "Remember Me".

Perhaps the system is having trouble kicking me off of previous devices?
