Things are closer to normal now.  A strange quirk, though: I can login in normally, and I get the page pictured below -- but there is no link to access the forum  ??? :-X.  As I said earlier, the forum can then be reached by retyping "forum.bearchive.com" and the login is still in effect: but...wtf? ???

^ Yeah, I've got a similar quirk now. Before the latest, when I signed into the forum I would be directed immediately to the forum. Now I go to a similar page and I have to click on the forum link and then I go to the forum. Not a big deal but it is an extra step. :P

Hmm: but as you can see from the screencap I uploaded, I don't get a forum link. Maybe they discriminate against moderators  :-\  Could you please upload a screencap of that page you get with the forum link, so I can see what I'm missing?

Much like you, I have never had a link from the sign in page, but then clicked on my browser link bar to the general discussion page.

I haven't checked every thread, but has anyone been able to post a gif?  I tried and failed, then tried one I'd successfully posted a few months ago and that, too, was rejected.  And still can't log out, although I'm intermittently being logged out without trying.

I haven't even tried posting gifs, jimmarg, because the ones I made up are only below the old 3 mB limit, not the new 2 mB limit.  Is your gif less than 2 mB?

No, it was larger. Was not aware of the new limit.  Hmmm...? Smaller is better?  Seems to go against the general BEA principle.  :)

I've just worked out the limit to 2 mB because I've seen files up to 1.83 mB posted so far, but 2.2 failed.

Has anyone been able to contact the admins or the owner to inquire if the change in the limit is purposeful or accidental?
If it's purposeful, I sure would like it if they changed the wording of the posting limit notice.

This is the largest I can post, it's 2.1 MB (2095 KB).

I'll probably sticky this soon.

Just thought I'd chime in, now that I can, that I had to create a new registration with a slightly different name. No mater the attempted workaround, I could not log in.

Yes, needing to do this. Normal login returns an authentication error. Started within the last 3 days

They may have it fixed, I dunno.  I'm able to login for the first time in 4 days.

Sorry to hear that, man. Take a day to breathe, then get your profile up on Dice or Fiverr or PeoplePerHour. Good luck!
