Nation can't log into forums

08-09-2003, 23:04
A recently created puppet of mine, "The GTD Bastion", is unable to log into the forums. When I log into the regular nation screen everything is fine, but when I click on the "The Forum" it says that I am not logged in. When I click on "Log in" in the forum and enter the info (name and password) it says "You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password."

I have tried to copy and paste the name and password from when I enter it and am successfully logged in to the regular nation screen, yet it still says that they are incorrect. Help please.

I've talked with the other Mods, and we need more information.

When did you create your puppet? Was it during the crash?

I created my puppet yesterday 9/7/03. I don't remember if it was during the crash. I do remember that there was some problems setting it up. I didn't try to do anything with it until this afternoon, which is where I discovered the login problem.

If it did happen during the crash (which I think it did, I'll try to verify the problem) it will take some serious fire power to fix, I'll see what I can do, but it might be easier just to let it die.

The thing is, I had very specific plans for this nation. I had an excellent RP all planned out. I wasn't just trying to make myself more powerful by having another nation (It's actually the first puppet that I've ever made)

If you can't fix it, is there any way that I can still use the name?

Ok, I'll see what I can get done, you'll need to be patient though, this may take a bit of time (as in measured in days).

Take your time. I really appreciate you doing this, so do it when you can

I'll run a script to run through all the nations in the world and make sure they've got forum logins registered.

As a note to Game Mods, you can try clearing this nation's forum_id and forum_password fields and see if that helps.

It works! I can log in! Yay! I don't know what you did, but thank you! Thank you so much!
