This is one for the mods, I guess. I have just finished responding to a message on the Retro Aviation Maintenance Hangar, but before I could do so, I received a message (during login) that I had reached the maximum number of failed logins and had to type in a code in order to rectify this situation. To my knowledge, I have never had a failed login. What is this all about?

It started for me ever since WIX Gen 3 started. My password and username is easy to remember. But I kept getting the "max failed log in attempts" every time I tried logging in! :? And had to type in a code that often turned out incorrect too! :?

I had the same issue several times a few weeks ago, but it only lasted a week or so.

I have never seen this problem...I have had a max log-in message but that was on initial entry to the forum and I just ignored it and clicked on the board index link with no trouble...

I will let Ryan and Scott know...

Thanks

Same problem here. Also, the board will not automatically sign me in any more either.

I don't know if it really matters, but I've never had this issues.

I hope it gets resolved for you guys.

Peace,

I thought perhaps that was the roundabout way for WIX to shut out the liberal Demoncrats writing in the forum.
I am surprised to know that it happened to some of you Kool Aid drinkers also.
Maybe computers don't like anyone.

Tried to get on using the smart (?) phone and had the same issue. No problem with the desk top or lap top though.

I've had the problem of the log-in attempts myself. I'm making some adjustments to my browser security so I'm not sure which end of the not staying logged in the problem is at.

I'll link this thread into the Mod Section to make sure it get some notice and the powers that be can take a look into it.

you're all whiners. Just hit your computer with a hammer and that fixes the problem. :rolleyes:
