When I recently tried to log on using my username SBman it said it doesn't exist, odd?
So I tried to reregister using SBman and it said the name had to be at least 8 chars. long, Curious?
So I reregistered successfully using EssBeeman, sigh!
Trouble is of course all my previous history of my posts and replies are now not accessible, grrrrrrr!

I am just curious as to why the new limit of 8 chars. for the username was implemented.
If you display the list of members they seem to be all (or most) there. So what happened to MY username?

Can anyone explain?
Thanks.

That's a good question - I saw you had sent me a PM when there was a massive SPAM posting, but when I went to check my inbox, it had nothing, and I couldn't find your username on the board anywhere.

I'd say you should contact Stephen and find out; I know the board was shut down for a bit while they cleaned up several thousand SPAM posts, which appear to have been automated (hence the new math question when you try to access the board.)

Has anyone tried to access the forums while using a non-IE browser? In SeaMonkey the math questions are stuck in a loop.
The first time I came across the math page I answered over a dozen times but still no forum.
Haven't checked with any of the other browsers yet (Firefox, K-Meleon, Opera, Lunascape).
Luna, btw, is a triple-renderer browser so if it doesn't work with Gecko I'm sure it'll work with Trident.

Google Chrome works OK.
I'll try Firefox tomorrow.

Edit: Firefox doesn't work; it just repeats the math question (with a different sum).

Opera works fine.
K-Meleon does not.

Just because I was in a testing mood I checked with text-based
browsers I have on Windows. Lynx, Links, and ELinks didn't work.
Not that I expected them to. :lol:

Edit:
Lunascape is a browser with switchable rendering engines. Results were
as expected.
Gecko - not working
Trident/IE - working
WebKit (Safari) - not working

SlimBrowser has been crashing a lot on me lately (creates a dump but never
asks to send a report). I reckon its due to some IE7 addon or maybe
the latest (huge) Patch Tuesday from MS.
I'll upgrade to the latest build (015 from my current 007) and see what
happens. Otherwise I'll have to use alternatives to access the forum.
