    George surprised us yesterday with a DNS change, which reset everyone's automatic login. When I log out, this is the login option that I see:

    If anyone sees anything different (e.g., if you cannot see the "Your name/email" field"), please post a screenshot below and I'll try to troubleshoot.

    Speaking of busted stuff: The forum's icon has been spontaneously replaced with a purple television with a play button in it.

    It could very well have been a glitch. Who knows. Anyway, I'm glad it's working now.

    The big problem with the login on Stratics is that it isn't over an HTTPS connection...

    Umm? Nor do most forum communities, nor has Stratics ever, nor does any other UO fansite, nor do most people who access other social networking sites......

    Best thing I can tell you is (a) don't use the same e-mail and password for Stratics that you use for your UO or bank account (read: who the hell would do this?), and/or (b) don't login using unsecure connections.
