I had real problems logging in on DW today. Tried several PC's and clearing the cache etc. I finally had to reset my password to be able to login.

Was I banned without me knowing, or is this a bug?

Update: I just remembered I updatet my profile yesterday. Apparently, when you click the "update member profile" button and you log-out, you won't be able to login again.

Not quite sure what you mean. Did you update your password from that page?

I'm sure there are lots of members here who have updated their member profiles and subsequently logged out and logged back in successfully.

Can you reproduce the bug?? What are the steps to reproduce??

No, it wouldn't be related. I've changed my username in the past too, from cscgal to Dani.

Do you have access to another web browser to try?

The only thing that can remotely have to do with it (I doubt it is thing) is that if you click edit profile, you can edit your password. If you dont do anything and click update member profile, technically (I imagine there are checks against this but...) your password is set to "". Daniweb's DB might not allow that and cause problems.

Its the only thing I can up with...

That would explain why it's only happening to you.

The password field is meant to be blank and not pre-filled.

Glad you solved it Nick Evan.
