System Issues?
Have I missed an announcement?

 10:25 am on May 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

For the past couple of days or so I have had to use a roundabout route to get to the AdSense page to view the topics and even have to log-in to read the postings.

My direct bookmark does not work.

I've been waiting for someone else to ask this question however they have not so I am.

Or is there something completely wrong with all my browsers?

Has there been an update and no one has told WebmasterWorld that there's a page viewing problem?

Sorry you're having trouble. Works fine for me.

Afraid its at your end.

Check that you have not, for example, left your browser as anonymous, or are using Googlebot as a spoof, or whatever.

Same for me Optirex. I had to login again on both my pc and laptop. Weird...


 12:21 pm on May 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

I've cleared every browser of everything, so much so that I'm now having to re-install all passwords etc.

I cannot come direct to this forum, I have to go via the index page and actually log-in before I can view any messages.

Have the protocols changed for site access?

It did not work for me either. I had to use direct link for one of the forum's pages.

Was logging in from a UK ip with no problem last week. Now I'm in Frankfurt on a German ip and having the same issues as Optirex.

This is has been that way for me as far as I can remember.
Also the posts shown in most forums, when you are not registred, are not up to date, that means at least one week old.

Some time ago, a week or so, I really had troubles browsing through WW posts. The site was slow, and the icons, especially sticky mail- and user profile icon never got downloaded. I'm always logged in, so I don't know about that, but I'm having the feeling that there has been some maintainance on WW.com lately.


 9:48 pm on May 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

Never had a problem, all is working fine here, looks like your cookie was reset and was not updated when you logged in again, are you sure WW is not trying to send you away?

The only trouble I see once in a while is error 500 internal server error.


 10:09 pm on May 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

I am having no issues at all.

You getting the same thing no matter what the browser?


 12:29 pm on May 16, 2006 (gmt 0)

Not everyone works and plays well with others. We are sorry that a few of you have been ruining into issues as we rearrange items to put up new hoops and traps for the bad guys. There will be some other issues that crop up for people today as well.

Thank you for your patience.

Figured it was tweaked htaccess rules or some other advanced perl programming.
Thanks Brett


 5:28 pm on May 16, 2006 (gmt 0)


Eeek, I got locked out and thought that Brett and his merry band had canned/caned me for something I'd said! B^>

But in any case I had to re-log-in using the (*ahem* *blush* right password) and my *issue* is over for now.




 7:22 pm on May 16, 2006 (gmt 0)

Heh, it wasn't until I'd opened about 10 different WebmasterWorld threads in tabs this morning that I realized they were all the same page, saying "Please login ..."

Thanks for the note, Brett. Glad to see I'm not the only one, and as you're fighting the good fight against the bots, I'm willing to accept some disturbance.


 4:03 am on May 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I am having these login-issues as well.

Seems that since yesterday the following happens: when logging in to WW for the first time on that day from that computer, I have to re-renter username/password before being able to access the forums. Not a big deal, but a bit annoying.

Accessing from German IP with the same systems (I swear!) where it has been working flawlessly before. Did you change the lifetime of the cookie perhaps?

[edit]See, it pays off to read the other messages in a thread... I understand that this is intentional. Well, then, Brett, go ahead with it![/edit]


 9:45 am on May 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Brett, it's continuing into today as well. I can't get into SF.


 10:48 am on May 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Just a quick note to let BT knows that if you are logged-off and click on "recent posts" link what you get is a "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" message.



 12:45 pm on May 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

If you are still having issues.
a) clear your browser cache.
b) visit this link [webmasterworld.com] to delete all WebmasterWorld cookies.
c) exit all browser windows.
d) now login to WebmasterWorld


 4:25 pm on May 22, 2006 (gmt 0)

Maybe you guys aren't as guilty as I am, but if you are using a user agent switcher (eg spoofing Googlebot) WebmasterWorld will bounce you in the way you are experiencing.
