RE: Password Probs.
I still haven't encountered any of the problems that have been reported by some members. If anyone can get a screen shot of a password problem, I would be grateful.

RE: Password Probs.
Unfortunately, Martin, if you can't get a password to get on the forum with, you can't get in touch. Since I'd relied on the membership listings to e-mail anyone on the forum, I was stuck for a couple of weeks until I hit on the idea of registering anew, with a different "handle" and e-mail address. Once that worked, I was able to make contact and you solved the problem quickly and got my old identifications renewed. Even my posting history was intact.

I would again suggest that an e-mail to each of the non-contributing members (particularly, even restricted to, those who who were regulars and haven't been heard from since the redesign) would enable them to get back with us.

Worth a try, at least.

Some more info Martin, although I can`t see how it may help you.

a Forum told me my log-information was incorrect (although it wasn`t).

b Received new password from you and gained access immediately.

c I reset this new password to my original and in and out with no problems.

d ??????????????????????

RE: Password Probs.
I have logged in and out dozens of times, set up new memberships, changed passwords and still haven't managed to encounter a problem.

Staying logged in is the best option.

RE: Password Probs.
During the change-over to the new system, staying logged in wasn't an option. EVERYONE was instructed to go through a process to get a new password and, for me, the process failed many times. Once you lose the validity of your password, you're dead in the water because you need to be logged in to change it. Enrolling afresh, with a new username and password was the only way I could get back in.

Once I'd done that (and I posted a few times with that name), I got an e-mail through to Martin and he resurrected my old u/n and p/w, which also restored my posting history.

RE: Password Probs.
There was a technical problem when the forum first went live that prevented some people from resetting their passwords, but that has been fixed now.

RE: Password Probs.
Yes, it has been fixed, but how would those, who gave up altogether, know about it if they've never tried to get back since?
