Default What`s going on with log in`s?

I just had to ask for a new password to be able to log in? After nearly four attempts, I managed to log in with the new details I was sent from HQ. When I came to the HC homepage this morning, there was a banner above the usual page that said welcome guest. And gave instruction to join the forum? I tried a few times to log in using my racinghamster username and my password, but it just kept saying it was invalid?

Has anyone else had this happen and had to request a new password? I thought something had changed on the forum and we were all having to re join? Strange....

Since posting the above, I have had to request a SECOND password? I tried logging in using this numerous times and have just managed to get onto the forum as I typed in, `racinghamster` and then my new password and ticked the box `remember me` and it logged me in. However, now that I AM logged in, should I STAY logged in, or if I log out, will I have the same log IN issues again?

I don`t understand why this new banner that has appeared is stating, `our records show that you have never posted before`? Now why would it state that? I don`t understand? Could a moderator or admin check this for me as I don`t understand why I have these problems when other members seem to log in fine? Thanks. I will stay logged in for now and just hope this doesn`t become a problem for me. If I don`t post again, you will know why.

Thanks soufflé, appreciate it. I will stay logged in for now and use the new password if I need to log out and log in again. It seems I have to type the whole of my username and password now and then click on the small `remember me` box each time I want to log in, whereas before, all I had to do was type `r` for racinghamster and the rest would automatically fill the appropriate boxes and then I would click on `log in` and that was that. It remembered my details, but now when I type `r` it doesn`t automatically fill in my details, so I have to type them all fully. x

Hopefully Fluffy can help, but it sounds more like an issue with your web browser rather than your account. Have you changed it recently? or cleared your browser history etc?

I was thinking that too leedsgurl but I havn`t deleted passwords just history, cookies etc.... I havn`t changed the way I delete or update anything but that doesn`t mean it can`t happen! I havn`t been able to log in as normal and had to keep changing my password and on a second attempt, I managed to log in, but now I have to type in my full details rather than it `remembering me`. But I tick the little box now anyway or I find it won`t allow me in! Fingers crossed if I log out tonight, I can get back in again. x

ETA: Just logged out and in again and it went fine. x

Depending on the browser and website, clearing cookies will mean it can 'forget' your username and password.
