Login/profile bug

Postby angeldeb82 » Sat Dec 05, 2020 4:28 pm

Something is very odd about the login button. Today, when I signed in using my email address and password, I got a step 2 message telling my that fields are required to migrate my account when I already migrated my account. So I was forced to fill in the fields and confirm it before I could continue. Even though I'm signed in, the account button on the top-right corner won't let me view my profile, because the link still says "Sign in"! When will the login/profile issues be fixed. :(
Still the same as it ever was.

And when you click on the link, it doesn't take you to the sign-in page. It takes you to the front page instead. :evil:

All you can do now is edit your avatar, email, and password. No way to edit your signature, favorites, or collections anymore.

Does the South Park Newsletter still exist? I last got one over 15 years ago.

I had this problem yesterday, so I went through with the migration, but the page just hanged itself and I couldn't do anything. I did notice that every time I come here I have to login. It does not remember us anymore, so I just avoided the site until today, and the login process worked as it should.

There's also the control panel for my profile shown here. So I guess I can manage my stuff on the control panel now. Thanks.

I have been having issues for a long time. Too bad Nall or Beary Bear isn't here anymore :sad:

This is my work-a-round:

Even though I have been here (but not so much lately) since 2008 or 2009 (I don't remember now), I just signed up once more for a new account:

zzyzxzz

I have had my browser remember my username/login/email. I also went old school and wrote it down and taped it on my wall, although I don't think my forgetting or entering the wrong info has ever been the issue. If I have further issues, I will not make a new account after this one. This is it. I will (if I have further issues) email Big-Will to discuss. Let's hope that won't be necessary. I don't know what's going on with this site.

FYI I have writen (under "contact us" for this site) many times, explaining the issues I have been having, including the original issue of not being sucessful in migrating my original account to this new system. To date, I have received absolutely no reply. Not even a "thank you for contacting us, we will get back to you shortly." No response at all.

I had a Facebook account about 10 years ago or so. I closed it, and haven't opened another one. Originally I would go to the IRC of this site, and we would discuss the episodes there in real time. I'm not talking about on this board in the pre-air or post-air threads. The actual IRC. Then in 2010 or 2011 (I don't remember) nall had a sort of a Facebook live (no video in those days), where we could all talk about the current episode in real time, but as I recall it was "real time" in the eastern time zone. When at that time I was living in the west so it was hard to participate as the show didn't air here yet. After that Facebook thing was over, I found I never used my Facebook account, so I closed it. So if I have future login troubles, angeldeb82, I'll email Big-Will. Of course, if I am logged in here and have issues, I can pm him here. But to answer your question, I don't have a Facebook account. Not for 10 years. But thanks for the suggestion :D

That won't work. After nall left I have not heard from any admins, so I have no idea whom to contact.
