[resolved] Usernames not working again (12 posts)

    Can someone check my two usernames? I can't seem to log in and I've reset passwords several times.

    GabeYoung
    Gabe y

    This happened to me before and I believe somehow they were deactivated or something of that sort.

    Both of those user accounts are currently active.

    Still won't work.

    GabeYoung says incorrect password
    Gabe Y says user does not exist

    Please refer to this:

    Of note - Gabe, you are the ONLY person I've ever met who keeps having this problem :) I'm thinking it's something on your PC/email server that messes it up.

    I did a password reset for gabe-y and gabeyoung (note ALL lower case). Let me know if you get those emails.

    I know it's strange. The thing is, I'm using a different PC than I was a few months ago so it's no the PC.

    The other thing is, it doesn't happen to any other site, just this one. Somehow I've created this crazy perfect storm that causes this to occur.

    Anyway, I'll give the new one a try and see how it goes. Thanks.

    Gabe: Are you using Firefox? If so, what version?

    Usernames are case sensitive. Make sure you're putting the right case in. If you're using Firefox, sometimes it gets stupid and will think it knows better, autocorrecting the case incorrectly.

    Your usernames are "Gabe Y" and "GabeYoung" (and now "gabe young"). Exactly those.

    And please stop making new accounts on our system. Pick one and stick with it.

    @esmi Yes, I'm using Firefox 4.

    @Otto I only create new accounts to continue to communicate on here. I'll try again paying more attention to the case. Thanks.

    Thanks, the problem is the username case. Firefox changes the case in the field. Now I know!

  10. Gabe, you were told that about the capital letters and case sensitivity three months ago.

    Just went back and read it. Must've missed that the first time around.

  12. FYI - ALL passwords for ALL users have just been reset.
