I'm not sure how or why the registration system has turned into such a mess, but I almost feel like the entire thing needs to get nuked and just have everyone re-register with new accounts - AFTER the new forums come online and the databases are combined, etc...
I still can't log-in, register, or request a password update to my existing "MacGizmo" username. Yet it states that it exists, as does the email address I use for it. Obviously any "automated" method to fixing this isn't working.

I don't seem to have any problems with Safari . When log into the forums , I seem to be log into MacTech news page as well (home page) <-- am I on the same page ? I can't duplicate the problems that are mentioned ?
Could setting have something to do with it ? Like threaded -vs- flat view ?
First the failures: I was logged into the forums, went over to the MacTech home page and tried to log in with my forum username and password. I couldn't. Instead, the username field turned red.
Still logged into the forums, I then tried to create a login account at the MacTech new account page, using my forum username and password. I couldn't create an account. Again, the username field, this time in the New Account part of the page, turned red.
I then tried both of those things after clearing the cache. Still no luck.
I then tried both of those things after logging out of the forum and clearing the cache. No luck--and again, the red input field.
Then Reboot suggested that I log out of the forum and created a new account with a different email and username and password from my forum log in. That worked, and the log in at the MacTech home page logged me into the forum as well. But then to revert to my old username account, I had to log out of both forum and homepage and then log in with the old username and password.
Trying to log into the MacTech home page with the old username and password still does not work, however--I get the username field in red.
