I keep having to reset my password just to log in Answered

Every 5 minutes, I get kicked off instructables and have to log in, only my password doesn't get accepted, so I have to reset it. The robot has sent me a reset code three times already-in the last ten minutes. I wonder how many times he'll keep sending it to me before he stops... I thought it might be a problem with my cookies, but I cleared the cache, and set it to accept ALL cookies unconditionally-no joy. Before you ask, yes, I'm using chrome, but the problem is also in IE and FF, so it's not that.


I sent a request for a reset code twice but did not receive them either time. Then I was able to login with the password which I must have mistyped before. Is there any reason, though, that I wouldn't have been able be sent a reset code?

Hmmm. I'm not sure - it's possible they got filtered as spam, so check your junk or spam mail folder. But I do know there have been some issues with email lately. The staff is looking into it, I think. :-)

. It appears that there have been at least two site updates/resets recently. See rachel's Sep 12, 2008. 3:19 PM post. . Fumble fingers may not have been the problem. You have have been trying to login as the site was coming back up and not yet fully functional. Just a guess.

Hrm, has this persisted? We had some servers reset yesterday and that could have caused behavior like you describe...

Happily, it seems to be fixed now! I had to reset it again today, but I may have just changed the password last time to something I forgot-it's kept me logged in for at least an hour now.
