Sorry for shouting but some users are STILL using their emails to login. You WILL be PERMANENTLY BLOCKED if you continue to do this. Nowhere does it say to use your email to login!!!!

Again, most users are logging in correctly but some are still in danger of being PERMANENTLY BLOCKED

IMPORTANT !!!!  READ THIS OR YOU MAY BE PERMANENETLY BLOCKED!!

Users must please STOP trying to use their email to log in with. It will NOT work. Also CHECK before you try to log in that you have actually entered a USER NAME. And write your PASSWORD down somewhere if you can't remember it. You can change it to something memorable in "Profile" -> "Account Settings." Password and username are CASE SENSITIVE!! Make a note of these settings and ONLY use the correct settings when trying to log in.

This is particularly important at the moment as an in-depth security review of the system is under way and the system is being clogged up by failed log in attempts which swamp the system and are completely unnecessary. New security measures are now in place and ANY USERS who repeatedly make unrecognised login attempts may AUTOMATICALLY be PERMANENTLY BLOCKED from accessing the site in any capacity. Unfortunately this is necessary to safeguard the security of the system in an increasingly hostile cyber environment. Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of cyber attacks are being dealt with on a daily basis and the system is being bogged down with hundreds of invalid logins from genuine users. There is absolutely no need for it. Repetitive password requests and invalid user names mimic the behaviour of cyber attackers and the system will PERMANENTLY BLOCK all further access from that device/ IP. There are several members who are "serial offenders." Your browser will offer to  remember your username and password for you. Use that facility. All you have to do is CHECK that it is correct in the log-in boxesBEFORE clicking log in. Apologies if this seems drastic but the current security regime requires decisive action and there really is no need for the innumerable number of invalid login attempts being made. Again, make a note of your settings to ensure access.

PLEASE be careful logging in.

If you have a problem, PM me.

All the best and stay safe,

Stewart
