    Hi guys,
    I'm having a lot of trouble logging into tt over the past couple of weeks, the forum sends me to the browser redirecting page and after that it keeps going back to the login screen for some reason?I thought you guys should know
    thanks,
    philosoraptor

    Same here. It happens when I click on the "Post Reply" button when I haven't logged in yet. That takes me to the login page. I enter my username and password, then go to the temporary "redirecting" page, then it punts me back to the logon page. If I click the browser's "Back" button, get back to the thread, and reload the page, I find that I'm logged in. This also happened a few months ago for a period of about two weeks, then it corrected itself. FWIW, it happens on both my home and office computers.

    Try clearing your cookies (it's a different process depending what browser you're using).

    If you can't figure out how, just google "<your browser name here> clear cookies"

    Let me know if that helps.

    Well, unless there's been something changed around on the backend, the next step to try is this: (Assuming you're on a windows machine)
    Start -> run -> cmd
    (or if you're on vista/win7, just type command in the search bar)

    Type: ipconfig /flushdns
    clear out your cookies one more time (on any and all browsers installed).

    It's unlikely to be a fix, but just maybe...
