Hi Eric,

When clicking forum topics on the home page I get this (see below) but not with every topic. I can read about 3 or 4 out of 10.

I use a Mac, new Lion installed and my browser is Safari. I hope you can solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

That appears to be a caching issue with the web site...  I can fix it but it may slow things down a bit..

Hello Eric,

I have tried logging back in, but it would seem that I have forgotten my password or it has been disabled, perhaps.  No matter:  May I please ask you to reset it for me?

My user ID is: emsquared

Many thanks,

Michael.

Email on its way with a log in link.

Hi Eric,

OS is Windows XP Professional, version 5.1, Service Pack 3.  Browser is Mozilla Firefox 3.6.18.  Both worked fine previously on F1M before the format change.

Issue description: Logon at the home page gets me into the left side home menu fine, but then the actual Forum topics themselves still show me as not logged in (the blue upper right area has a link for me to "login" as if I've never gotten in to begin with.  So in this half-logged-in state I cannot post or reply to anything as the Forums themselves still do not see my userid as logged on.  I am "ajp01".

At the start date of the new format I attempted a logon to find a message that said "your password was not able to be converted successfully, please request a new one using..."  which I attempted to do but failed.

If I use the process where I logoff, clear cache/cookies, then try to reset password, it says I'm unauthorized to request a new password (probably never sees me fully logged in to begin with). 

If I use one of the previously provided One Time Logon emails that were sent and follow the process using a successful Captcha, it will get me in all the way to both the home page and the forum (where I can reset my forum password on first login) but then at some random point within the next few hours I'll be bounced out of the Forum topics themselves while still showing logged in on the top left Home menu (that half-way logged in state again).  Back to square 1 after that.

Thanks a million for bringing the site back and for helping us share our hobby with each other - very much appreciated!

Cheers,

AJ

Hi Eric,

I can log in but it usually the site logs me off within short while (maybe 5 minutes?). I've looked around for a setting option that allows to leave me to remain logged in for longer and cannot find one. Maybe "Male Blindness" or perhaps there is no option? I do log on from my partners computer in the house (this is from my office computer) so I'm not sure what role that has to play, but these issues occur when the other computer is in sleep mode anyway.

This is posted from Apple OSX10.4 Firefox 3.6.19

btw i've tried clearing history cookies etc and still keep getting elbowed off after a short while.

Cheers,

Terry

This logging in issue is getting a bit frustrating. I tried the suggested method several times.

 

I'm still always shown as logged in on the main page.

If I try to log in on the forum I get :

You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below.
even on the first login attempt.
Using windows 7, and letest version of IE

Hi

I can login with no problem, but I have to login again every five minutes, despite clicking on the "keep me signed in" checkbox.

Running 10.6.8 with Safari 5.1 (6534.50)

Otherwise its working nice.

 

Will the forum have a nice green scheme to fit in with the rest of the site ? :)

I'm running the same setup and have no problems... odd.

Not sure about the Forum theme, I need to do some more important things first.  I may just change the site theme to blue.  Any suggestions on cars to feature in the logo?

Login problem solved now thanks. No need to log back in again. The forum remembers me being logged in each time.

As for cars, well if the site will be blue, it could be Tyrrell, or Sauber ?

Both are quite popular teams, and dont polarize people like, say Ferrari ;)

Can log in but get this error when using the forum link at the top of the page.

404 Not Found Error: No content found at the requested URL

Sorry, no content was found at the requested path - it's possible that you've requested this page in error.

I found my new ID locked out tonight.

Tried a new password retrieval but to no avail.

No matter what I do it seems to drop my password all the time and I end up locked out.

Pretty fed up with it now.

Hi Eric,

Moved to a new dimension for me now. My home PC cannot connect to F1M at all (main site or forum shortcut).

Before this, I had big probs logging in, specifically from my home PC. During that period I got a couple of errors saying your software (I presume FW software) sees me as malicious and is trying to block me. Re-opening a browser session usually fixed it - I presumed it was related to the login issues.

For the last couple of days I simply cannot acces the site from home. I simply get a page not found error. Any ideas? (Have refreshed page, same error. Cleared cache, can do so again if that's what you'd suggest...)

 

Cheers

I had to change the DNS setting for f1m.com and f1m.info and its taking a while to propagate across the internet...

Eric, 

Same situation as jtracing: I have to reset the password but it's not permitted to do so... And I can't get my messages done since 2007... What I need for paying kits I bought from another member.

MacOs 10.6.7

Safari 5.0.5

Please note that it seemed OK until 2 days ago...

Thanks,

Mario

I will have the system send you an email with a login link so you can reset your password...

Thanks Eric,

You're right, I was logged in the home page. But getting in the Forum area, I was asked to log again to post or get to my messages and my password wasn't recognized. I was asked to renew it but wasn't autorised to do it. Confusing...

The link you sent me to edit my profile did work and everything seems alright now.

Thanks again, I really appreciate your concern

Mario

Hold on...  you were logged in...  So I don't see the issue...

Eric, I have the similar problem that I am logged in but can't post in the forums, and "not authorised" to

change my password.  Can you email me a link to reset my password please??  And also let me know if you

still need help with moderating.

 

Thanks

Hi,

Your account appears to be working since you are logged in here and posted.

You may need to log out, remove all F1M.com cookies from your browser and empty its cache.  Then come back and log in on the main page's (green) login box.

Then try to go to the Forums at http://www.f1m.com/forums.

Okay, there's probably nothing you can do about it but I'm going to post this anyway as it's driving me

crazy.  I can't access this site from my computers at home, but can from work.  It must be a setting on

my end but the ONLY site that continuosly fails to open is this one. I'm using Firefox, but have tried it

with IE, Chrome, and tonight I'll try with opera.  Any ideas?  I'd much rather have the site running

from my home PC's obviously :(

 

Hmm.. what happens when you try to access the site?  Does it never open, do you get a warning page from Cloudflare, or what?  

Normally, I'd say its a cookie issue, but if it persists across several browsers that would not make sense.  

Can you tell me the IP Address of your home system(s)?  It may have gotten blocked.

Also, let me know if you can get to www.f1m.info and www.ericaitala.com - those are also on the same server...

Thanks,

Eric

I've stayed silent about this for a few weeks, deleted my browser history and cookies, flushed my DNS, even brought my

PC to my Hardware guy and of course as soon as I mention something, the problem seems to fix itself.

Isn't that always the way??

 

Thank you and sorry for wasting your time...

I actually made a big change a day or so ago - had to disable Cloudflare -which might have blocked you. There was some sort of problem and it killed the whole site. Eric

Everything was working great until yesterday afternoon (i was even logged in in the morning and everthing was fine).

I cleared the Cach, history, and all Cookies from my browser (firefox), I was not able to log into www.f1m.info but I was able to log into  www.ericaitala.com. The PC I'm using is hooked up wirelessy to my home network, my smart phone is also on the same Wi-Fi signal and I was able to access from my phone (on the same network).  Could it be specific to my pc?

 

Thanks,

Vince

Try again when you get home.. Also can you send me an email (to f1m@f1m.com) from your home PC?  If you can find it, include the PC's IP address...  I'm wondering if you're getting blocked b/c of a security system I'm using that blocks access from PCs that may have been infected or compromised...
