So i decided to drop by during lunchtime at work today. Nothing wrong, up until the moment i tried to log in.
Apparently, my username has symbols that aren't allowed anymore (the apostrophe, i assume), as i tried about four or five times, getting the same error message every time.
Now, my home comp has cookies i never clean up, so i'm still good for posting, but i figured i'd let you know in case there's more people threatening to encounter the same problems.

Hmm, odd. That must be something about your local settings at work because I've got no problems logging in with my apostrophe.
Can you tell me the exact error message you get?

"This username contains invalid characters!"
For some reason, it's working again today. It even autologged me on. Odd... o.O

Hmmm, weird. Let me know if you experience this problem again.

[quote:214rsapi]An Error Has Occured!
There is an invalid character in the Username field! [/quote:214rsapi]
I also found out what was causing the problem.
Since i'm at work, i'm a bit more careful about saving links, especially to RP forums and such. While typing the site's url, i accidentally went to /forums.php in stead of /forums/, meaning i ended up at the old site. Which didn't support the 'invalid character' XD
So yeah, my bad ^^;

Ah, alright. That makes sense. The old forums had a login id separate from the username and the id didn't support those characters.
Anyway, I've renamed the php-file to [url=http://www.eilistraee.com/old_forums.php:eefmpwba
]old_forums.php[/url:eefmpwba] to avoid any confusion in the future.
And with the issue resolved I'm locking the topic. Any further issues with this or any new issues, start a new topic.
