I am Locked out of the Main Board

Postby Adino » Wed Nov 02, 2016 5:55 pm

I think someone may be trying to login is me as I can't get in and seem to be the only one having trouble.

I browse with Firefox, it is set to erase cookies and history at close. I have my username and password saved (before privacy mode setup) and used the same configuration to login and post today that I have for years. I get the following prompt when I try to log in


vBulletin Message
Wrong username or password. You have used up your failed login quota! Please wait 15 minutes before trying again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!


I can log in at other sites.

I have requested a username/password refresh/reset an hour ago from the main site but haven't gotten an email back.

Weird shit.

Still no email from main site.

One way or another I've been muzzled y'all.

I'm out at the main board too. I can read the public threads, but can't post. But it seems that plenty of people are over there posting and doing fine. I've tried every fix and trick that's been suggested, but no luck.

Dennis posted that it has to do with the IP being sent to the load balencer via the hyperterminal warp core extension, rather than the normal way.

Chief Engineer Scott is working on the problem. ;)

From what Dennis is saying, they are swapping out the load balancer for an alternative. Apparently it is causing a lot of the issue. I feel for the poor techs troubleshooting this right now! LOL

Just tried doing the ipconfig/flushdns again, cleared cookies and cache have done multiple reboots and am still getting the locked out message. At this stage, there is nothing that I know left to do.

Do any of the techies have any other suggestions that I can try here? I have done the cookie and cache dump multiple times, IPconfig/flushdns several times. rebooted many times. All have failed with the end result the same locked out message.
