Password Does Not Work or Authentication Error when Posting

There are 2 different levels that require a password. The first password is required to read the messages and look at the pictures in the archives. This password is obtained when you become a paying member. The other "second-level" password is used for posting messages and for using the advanced features of the board. The second-level password is obtained by clicking on "Edit Account Profile" in the left side of the screen and then choosing "Instant Registration" on the screen that follows. If you do not make a second level password, you can still post a message by leaving the field blank. The choice is yours.

If you have a paid account and the password to read the messages is not working, follow these instructions:

  1. Close your browser. Re-open it. Try password again. You would be amazed at how often this works.
  2. Check password by clicking here.
  3. Remember that passwords are CaSE SenSITive. Make sure YOUR CAPS LOCKS is not turned on when typing the password.
  4. Determine if your account expired by clicking here. If your account expired, simply renew it for instant access.

If your second-level password is not working and you receive an "Authentication Error" when posting messages, follow these instructions.

  1. Make a new account by clicking on "Edit Account Profile" and then "Instant Registration". Because payment is not needed to make a second-level password, you can make as many as you want.
  2. Post with no password. Most people do this anyway so it is really not necessary to bother with the second level account.

Finally, if all else fails, send an Email to admin (remove space)

When Sending Email make sure to include
in your Email a description of the problem, which password is not working, your account number, your user-ID and what you think the password should be. If you do not include this information I cannot help you.
