FYI, When I arrived at the site this morning, I got to be majorvices for a moment. :-*

It said Welcome majorvices at the top, I could see all the sub forums that are not normally exposed for me...like the moderator section and the Industry section.

I clicked out and returned and it was back to normal.

Weird quirks; an aptly named thread.

Happened to me again today.  A few days ago I was someone else.  Today I was Denny.

I'm wondering if someone else might have gotten logged in under my account.

We need to know whether there's a risk of account compromise, someone getting in, changing my password, viewing my account profile info, viewing my PMs, etc.

Hey, I was Denny when I checked in this time!  He gets to see a whole different page than the rest of us.

 ;D, Me too.  Pretty interesting being Keith in the morning and Denny in the afternoon. :P

FWIW, Poor Denny only gets the flat blue screen, with none of the new colors or fonts the rest of us are getting with the new AHA scheme.  :o

I suddenly found myself wanting to tell someone to make a starter and pick up their trash. ;)


FWIW, for Monday morning IT,

it seems that if you try and access the site immediately after a moderator signs on, you get to see the site as the moderator would.  I just got the welcome major vices screen again and he was the first user listed in the online member list.

However, any actions to try and access different areas that a mod might have access (try to click on the Moderator section) kicks you to a Login screen that says umm yea, you really don't have access to this, please sign on.

Hope this helps.

That's my choice.  I hate the yellow/orange/brown scheme.

Uh, huh.
I am a moderator on another forum.  I know how those mod only threads go.  8)   ;)

I heard from Nate that they've been working on the login problems and changed some settings that may help.  Let us know.

Negative.  I was on earlier this evening normally. An hour later, I come back and I'm signed in as another user (not an admin).

This really does have to stop.

I got on site a couple of minutes ago and discovered I was logged on as someone else!  I don't remember the logon name though.  I hit logout and discovered that it said I was currently logged in as myself and that the logout didn't work. (It said an error occurred)

The picture of me below my screen name is also now gone.  And I went to post a reply and it came up with a timeout message (I hadn't been typing a long time), but I just hit 'post' again and it went through.

Everything else seems to be working.

Yesterday I logged in and it showed me as your username. I logged out and back in and i was still logged in as you. I tried it again and it worked but it was really weird.

I wasn't automatically logged in last night on the ipad, but was this am on the pc.
Another quirk: I always click the "unread" button and read all those posts by clicking the "back" button after each one.  Last night on the ipad this step would eliminate the post I just read from the list.  That's not normal (not in a Three Floyds way).

Hi Steve-

Can you let me know exactly what time you experienced the login bugs? We made a change around 4pm on Dec 23rd that couldhave/shouldhave fixed the issue.

Dec. 22 4:50PM Pacific time.  I have not been logged in as anyone else since then.  But there continue to be login issues of a less entertaining variety.  I always set my login to stay logged in forever, but I regularly (even this morning was logged out.  But as I was went to the login screen I saw that I was logged in as myself without doing anything - in other words by merely going to the login page I became logged in.

Another weird thing is that when I am posting a response to a thread, it frequently tells me it has timed out even though the time from clicking 'Respond' to when I click 'Post' is not unusually long.

Minor issues.  Hope this helps.

The only login issue I have had is being logged out when I have checked the stay logged in option. The fix is hitting the reload button on the browser. Works for me at least.

That's one I personally haven't seen.  I stay logged in.
