Hey you all.

I am having trouble too, but if you delete all your cookies and temporary Internet files, you can log in, etc.

I hope that the GA.com team gets this problem fixed soon.  If they don't maybe they should get another BB!

I think I've figured out the log in session problem.  The Bulletin Board sets 2 cookies, one for expiration time and one for user info (log in name and password).  If you log in to the board for the first time without checking the box "Always stay logged in" then the cookie expiration is set to expire immedieately.  So it can not set the second cookie which remembers your login information when you change pages.  What you need to do is delete ALL the cookies to this site.  

There are two places you need to delete the cookies in Windows 2000 and XP,  under "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Cookies" and
under "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files"  

After deleting both cookies, come back to the bulletin board. You will actually have to log in twice, but make sure you have checked the option to "Always stay logged in" the first time you log in.

I think that will solve your login problems.

Yep, it works. You gotta delete all the cookies.  Every last one of them.

I didn't even start a new session and it is working on my end.

Of course, you can always continue to post as a guest...but you will never overcome that way...

I have to admit it, that "man on fire" logo on your posts has had me chuckling for the last 15 minutes. It is almost positively Mauldinish in its humor!  Grin

Hello Everyone

Our webmaster seems to have fixed the problem with logging in and out.  

Delete all your cookies once, and you should be good to go, with no trouble.

Of course, you may continue to post as guests if you like, whatever suits you best.  However, loggin in allows you to use some of the other features like Private Messaging, etc.
