Problem with to many failed login attempts

Postby thissucks » Wed Jan 09, 2013 9:43 am

I had issues logging into my account 'colokeith' from my iphone.

I now get a message that says "to many failed login attempts you must solve Captcha" ...

I cannot get past this screen no matter what the heck I do. I reset my password to ensure I was entering the correct password.
I think something is broken here. I had to create a second account to post this.

answer I am using for Capthca "Mt. Elbert"

If you email me the most recent password for that account, I'll give a try to see if there's a problem with the account. Then I can reset it. a-d-m-i-n-@-1-4-e-r-s-.-c-o-m (remove dashes)

I've had that issue too. Make sure you type out "Mount" Elbert instead of "Mt." That worked for me.

I think you're right. On that "you've screwed up your password too many times" page, the security plug-in appears to sometimes be ignoring the other "elbert" options I've provided. It might be a bug in their software and I'll look into it.

Yes it is
To climb is to push yourself in a way you might not normally imagine is possible. If your stamina, skill, and luck are sound you will get to stand on top. ... I realized that with climbing, I'd found something that nourished my soul and could forge me into a better version myself - Jim Davidson
