Because I frequent the forums, the problems that keep popping up aren't exactly surprising - technology's a mischevious little scamp. However, for those who DON'T frequent the forums, or those who are new, or just those who are confused and annoyed and lazy, would it be possible to slap an informative alert on the main page, or link an alert to the "Log in" button on the main page? That way people would know thay weren't the only ones having issues and that the problem IS being looked at. A helpful link could lead them right here to the help forums. That way nobody feels lost and the admins can stop answering the same questions over and over.
I'm guessing pretty much everyone is getting the same problem (Or is anyone able to get in smoothly at this point?) and that it will take more time to fix (and re-fix) than it would take to post a message.
Geez guys. This is as bad as a classroom where I ask if everyone for their homework and nobody turns in their work. That's fine, but what I really want is people to tell me the steps they are taking, see below.
When you goto http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com
what do you get?
a ) I get a page that looks like "Authentication Required
Enter username and password for "ComicGenesis Forums" at siteadmin.comicgenesis.com" with a login or ok button and a cancel button
b) I get 'login'
c) I get 'login again
d) I get "Your browser is broken, please use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera or something that supports HTTP Digest Authentication compliant with RFC2617!(Opera does not appear to do this right ATM...)"
e) I get the same login screen over and over with no cancel button
Problem 2: What login do you use to access the siteadmin?
a) the same login I use for forums.comicgenesis.com
b) the same login I use for my username.comicgenesis.com ftp
c) I'm just hitting ok or cancel
Problem 3: Is the siteadmin case sensitive
c) WHAT IS CASE SENSITIVE?
Problem 4: What browsers did Kisai say work? Check all that apply
a) MSIE 6
b) MSIE 7
c) FireFox 2 (and varients like Camino, Mozilla and Netscape)
e) Opera 9.x
Problem 5: Which browser did you use on the siteadmin? Please copy the version string from the browsers about page.
Example:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/220.127.116.11
Problem 6: Do you have any software that modifies the browser settings to enhance your privacy? (Norton/Mcafee products, usually anything with the word "firewall" in it)
Problem 7: After you login, what are you doing? (example, adding my account, trying to delete my account, clicking on my comic name)
See for all intents and purposes, the siteadmin works for me in MSIE, Firefox and Safari (on both windows and mac) so if it does not work for you, I need to know what everyone else is doing differently. It's important to note that if you are using something other than the above stated browsers that you tell me where I can get it so I can test it. I do not seriously expect browsers inside mobile phones or PDA's to be able access it as they tend to be stripped down.
