The board is still not working right.

The view options are not working and the site shows other users logged in.

I've had this issue recently as well, on both my laptop and iPhone. I was beginning to think it was my IP address, but it must be more widespread.

I've seen myself showing as logged in as other people, and it can rotate across people if I look at different pages. If I go to post something it will make me login before posting, so it doesn't appear that someone can post as being someone else.

At times I can't see recent posts and it may take a long time for me to see something I've posted. I don't have any solution ideas at the moment.

I wanted to reply to my "Seeking an article" post and let Erik know that I think his article idea is an awesome idea and sounds perfect, but I'll mention it here since I can't see that particular post right now.

I've also been experiencing this issue, and I wonder if some members are coming to the site, seeing no new posts, and failing to notice (I was for a few days). Since I use one google account in Chrome across my home and work computers and personal phone, I tried clearing cookies for this domain but to no avail. Using safari on my work phone right now everything seems to be working properly. I'll try Firefox later. Are you two using Chrome?

Still doing weird things on Firefox at work, though at least I was able to log in and navigate to this page after first getting a version where I was L.Danton and no posts were newer than May 2.

Yes and Firefox and  Android Browser. I am seeing the same thing on multiple different public\private computers on different networks.

So far it seems that if I visit on a private browser window (no cookies) I can at least log out of the imaginary session, log back in under my real user name, see new posts, and make posts. Which is good since I have a bunch of stuff I'd like to post, but who knows if anyone will be able to see it!

On a standard browser window it won't actually let me log out of the imaginary session where it is indicated that I am logged in as someone else and see no posts newer than May 2.

It's been malfunctioning for at least a week for me. Not keeping me automatically logged in, and sometimes I have to login like a half dozen times in a row.

I was having the same problems as everyone else, but it's all good now.  Whatever the issue was, it seems to have been resolved.

What do you think, is it possible that the strange behavior of the BBS recently was due to a hacker attack? Are the username-password combinations possibly in the hands of criminals now?
