A request for long serving members
« on: 20/05/2006 17:36:16 »
Hi
  I have made a try at converting the forum onto some new software. I would like to test whether it will understand the passwords properly. My problem is that I wasn't registered when the database dump was made so I can't test it.
If anyone was registered in December 2004 and would like to try logging in I would appreciate knowing whether it works.
http://www.kellaton.org.uk/forum/

Any feedback on the new software would be interesting too.
  cheers
    Dave

Cheers neil, I thought that may be the case... I will keep playing. If yours doesn't work chris' probably won't either, it is probably my fault.

The reason that the newer posts aren't there is that it is based on an old database backup - which has the advantage that it has a third of as many posts so only takes 4 hours to convert... when I convert it properly rest assured the more recent ones will be there.

Out of interest, how sure are you of your old password neil? there is definitely a neilep user back then.

When you say logged out does it say 'incorrect password' or something else?

...No..it says I've had too many attempts to log in and that I should try again later..but it doesn't say how long to wait before trying again..

New site looking good, just  a touch too much yellow for my liking.  :)

I also really love the fact that Neil has only 2249 posts :D



Keep up the good work dave, i can only imagine how much hair you have pulled out.

Probably not nearly as much hair as I will have pulled out by the time I get the passwords to work.

I'll keep trying sporadically Dave...hang on !! (20 seconds later)...sorry !!..still no joy !...

JUST IN CASE I am having a major case of brain fatigue perhaps Chris should have a go...I presume his password has never changed whereas mine has..though..I am sure Dave I am using all the passwords I have ever known !!...and it's only the two on this site !

don't worry neil, if it doesn't work now it probably won't in the near future, I will tell you if I change anything I will tell you. Chris is away for a week so I may have to be patient.

Is there anyone else who has been around that long?

   cheers

cheers, I have now worked out why it wasn't working... the password hashing function was not installed, I am trying to get the server admins to install it, or find a workaround. I will tell you when and if I manage
  cheers

dave, can you see if my username was any diferent in those days ?..I think a few changes were made not just to my password but also my username...it may be why I am having no succes.
