Hoookay, so I logged out of the forums, attempted to log in to MacTech, and got the expected error message. I then clicked on the "Forgot your password?" link, received the email, and clicked on the enclosed link. This took me to a page stating that my username had been validated, and provided me with a one-time login button to access my account. Pressed the login button and...........
If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention...

I'm having the same issues with my MacBozo credentials. Also, it does not recognize my email, so I can't even reset my password. Works fine for the test "sock."
Edit: OK. Changed my email address and password. Confirmed address and attempted to login through www.mactech.com - still no go. Are there characters that are not allowed in the password? Why does it work for logging in to the forum and not at the main site?
Edit #2: It apparently does not like "MacBozo" as the user name. Does it also want 8 characters for that?
The following also happens with either reboot or a test user I made recently, from both home and a remote machine.
To add another twist. After I Quit and relaunch and it has logged me out of the forums, sometimes it won't let me log into the forums even if I go to Log In at the forums. I enter my info and it just takes me back to the forums but not logged in. If that happens I have to log out of MacTech, then log back into MacTech which also will then log me into the forums.
And a twist on that. Sometimes it doesn't automatically log me into the forums by logging out then logging back into MacTech when the above happens, I have to quit the browser first.
I've tried this dozens of times, am I trying too much too quick, some kind of flood control?
