as the title says,

i can not log into the collections area when im looking at a games profile. (the area where you are able to rate the game/add if you own or not ect.ect.)

everytime i scroll down to look at the area it says i have to log in to use the collection features. i click the log in link it gives me and log in, when i return it says the exact same thing!


is there a quick fix to this?


thanks!



(oh no!) when i try to log into mygeek this is the message i am getting:
Error: User does not exist.

did i make someone mad and get banned from mygeek or something?

im so confused!

Are you perhaps logging into www.boardgamegeek.com and then going to pages as boardgamegeek.com (i.e. without the www. in front) - this is known to cause this since you can be logged into one & not the other.

im logging in as normal, but instead of it moving me to the normal front page, it still has me on the non-registered front page.
i have to click the "jump right in" link to get the normal registerd user front page.

i have only had to start doing this in the past 2 days.

help!

I am getting the same error, "Error: User does not exist" when I go to MyGeek->Profile. Also can't add to collections.

Username: brad_c_1966

Doesn't matter if I go in through IE or Firefox.

I am running CA Security Center if that makes any difference.

I'm sure "security center" has an issue wth it - these things usually restrict "personal" info from being transmitted over cookies. If your username is like your real name for instance...

Also, try clearing your cookies.

Added "boardgamegeek.com" to the "Manage Sites" list on my "Personal Firewall" (in case anyone else on Comcast or Roadrunner is using CA Securit y Center".
