    Pumpkin Bulbapedia Log-in problem

    Well, I've become fed up. Why the hell does the wiki log me out every few minutes? Then when I try to log in, it says that it is unable to do so to protect the session from some kind of hijacking. It actually says:

    "Login error
    There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Go back to the previous page, reload that page and then try again. "

    What should I do? I've tried everything from clearing the cache and restarting, but nothing seems to work... Anyone got any tips, or is it a server problem again?

    I had that problem yesterday, too. I kept trying to make the Wide Guard page and it kept telling me I didn't have authorization to save the changes because I wasn't logged in and wasn't allowed to edit. A couple of refreshes fixed it temporarily, but it kept coming back =/

    Are you logged onto more than one computer? I get the same message when I am.

    Anyways, whenever I get that message, I simply retype my login info and log in again.

    And if you get automatically logged off, just log back in with the "remember my login info" box checked.

    It always works for me.

    I hate signatures that ask you to copy+paste them. Copy+paste this if you do, too.

    I don't use legal hacks. Who came up with that anyways? Stupidest thing ever. He/she should be shot.

    Also, I'm getting sick and tired of getting licked by every other avatar I see. Copy+paste this if you are t...just kidding.

    This is a different issue -- it isn't quite sure whether or not I'm logged in, and when it decides, it always changes its mind.

    No, what I mean is, when you're editing a page, and you try to save/preview it but you get a permission error?

    You click the login button again and regardless of whether or not you're already logged in, you put in your username and password and click the "remember my login info blah blah blah" box before pressing Enter.

    I sometimes get this problem if I haven't got the box checked.

    The server is, from what I hear, slightly unstable due to the traffic from the JpBW release. Can't wait til the En release....

    Because with the English release comes much more vandalism potential?
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Oh.

    So... stuff like the English names.

    Doesn't work. And today it is just getting out of hand after a lull yesterday. Seems as if the server has a grudge against me!

    Unfortunately, that's a result of the high traffic Bulbapedia is currently experiencing. I recommend that (if possible) you check "remember me on this computer" (or whatever the box says). I find that it helps keep me logged in.
