Access Denied upon signing in

Hello! For the past long time, whenever I log in, I always have to do so twice. The first attempt always, without fail, tells me that Access is Denied. Is this just me? Does Greater Than Games want to deny me access? I can understand that, I guess.

 

Anywho, if that can be corrected, that'd be swell. And if it's a common problem that is a well kept secret and I've ruined a surprise, I apologise and will continue to lurk with a zipped mug.

It happens to me... but instead of signing in again I just hit refresh and it works fine then.

I don't know if it's the same issue, but I've found that Safari on my Mac caches the page that says "Access Denied" so that after I login correctly and try to go back to that same page, it shows me the cached "Access Denied" page again.  But like jagarciao says, if I refresh, it figures out that the situation has changed and shows me the proper page.

I get it, too.  All my info is auto-filled, and I just hit login again.

Huh. I've not seen this.

Chrome/PC, not seeing that I'm afraid.

Can't replicate the issue on Chrome or Firefox on PC.

Here's an idea: clear the cache/cookies for this site, and try logging on again.

Thanks, everyone! Glad to not be isolated in the Denial group, at least.

 

It's a minor annoyance at best, not enough to cease forum use. (As mentioned, a simple refresh does go through successfully, so just a single added step, I suppose.)

I tend to use the New Topics page as my homepage.  Every once in a while when I refresh, I'll get the Access Denied page instead, whereupon I will go to the login page and login.  After that, I shall backup to the New Topics page, which will still say "Access Denied", but upon refreshing it will turn back into the New Topics page.
