    Log In trouble

    Greetings,
    This is the first time when I have been able to log in since 9/5/2016. I tried on three different computers and using different browsers. The text boxes in the upper part of the screen have not worked, and the password space does not obscure my password. I managed to log in using the form that appears after an unsuccessful log in attempt. I also am on aother forum that uses vBulletin, and that has been not problem. Has Lit-Net done anything to the software that migh cause this? And can you suggest any way that might make it easier for me to get on the site. And this site has been opening slower than other sites.

    I've had the same problems exactly. And I no longer get the option to use italics, bold script, etc. What gives?

    Yes, all systems are go. I wonder if this could have something to do with the fact that Peter and I are in the same part of the USA right now. Another thought I had (before hearing about Peter's problem) is that it had to do with my tablet. But Peter says he's been using various computers, so it seems to be something on LitNet's end.

    Are you still there, LitNet?

    Various security configurations and they all act the same. I am starting to suspect a new version of Java or another language (javascript, Flash, or similar) that would have been downloaded within the last couple of weeks.

    I am becoming more confidnet that it is some add-on that the browser is using one the site. Just which and how it is interfering I don't know, but using the form to sign in works, while the thing in the upper right does not work. I just signed on using twl browsers, so I don't think that browser is the problem, but it may have been a poor update to all browsers

    I had problems with the site some time ago. If one uses more than one device, one has to check the remember me field or one gets logged out again. I also was directed to a cloud in some ocasions, which for some unfathomable reason is in Argentina. Maybe this form is directing you to the cloud.The weather has some influence too. When it storms the connection is bad.

    I'm not able to use LitNet with Firefox (my usual browser) anymore - clicking any link on the main page leads to an error screen telling me the 'server has started a process that will never complete', or something like that. For now, I use IE and that seems to work fine. I suspect that's a problem with my computer, but I thought I'd mention it in case it throws any light on other peoples' issues.

    In addition to my other woes (sign in weirdness, incredibly long page changes, no bold, italics, underline, etc.) I no longer get the big emoticon screen. I click on the more link (just to the right of this dialogue box) but nothing happens.

    Does anyone from LitNet know why these things are happening?

    "The 'server has started a process that will never complete'" strongly suggests that it is a site specific problem, which may explain why there has been no official response on this thread; they are too busy rying to straighten things out to reply.

    The question is if the site works differently, depending where you are, through different clouds, for example.
    I had the problems I stated before, but now its ok logging in from Brazil with Firefox. But I remember a member from the state New York complaining about the difficulty in using the site. That might be one of the reasons he hasn,t frequented the site lately.
    I would try to contact the moderators or the Admin if the problems persist.

    That's normal, Danik.

    Isn't that what we're doing now? I wrote to them through the contact us link the day the problems started, but there has been no response at all. Hopefully Peter is right and this only means they are busy fixing the problem, but it would be nice to hear that from someone in charge. Are you out there, LitNet?

    I suppose that the way to get a response of the staff is trying to contact someone you know and who is still there.
