Below are screen shots of the issues I mentioned.
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

There is no God, and life is just a myth.

"He who drinks, sleeps. He who sleeps, does not sin. He who does not sin, is holy. Therefore he who drinks, is holy."

Try: https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=unread
It says I have nothing unread, which is obviously wrong since there's a whole stack of threads I don't follow.

Anyway, it's fine;  I'm used to scrolling through the limited number of topics I care about.   :)
I even read works I disagree with;  life outside  an ideological echo chamber.

Just reporting that everything seems to be working very well for me ... I'm 12 hours out of synch with many (most?) users, so maybe that's why I have not seen many "overload" messages. I certainly have not had serious problems for the past several weeks although, clearly, many have.

Thanks, again, Mike ... we cannot say that often enough.  :salute:

In a way, I guess, except that I have not had the https problem, and while I have seen a few "server too busy" messages ~ maybe a half dozen, even ten over the past month, and a tiny handful ~ two, three four ~ of "white screens," it appears that I have been spared 90% of the angst; I'm guessing it's because I log on at non-peak hours ...  :dunno:  ... or maybe it's because I'm such a good boy!  ;D

Can you expand on that? I don't have enough detail to go on... E.G. What links are you clicking? What are you expecting to see that you don't? A screenshot and copy/paste of the URL always helps too.

Sorry about that Mike...might have solved my problem by re-saving the site in my favorites.

I could get my subscribed content but it would not show any new content. It would show the page as if you have just erased all the notices....

It just refuses to log me in, gives me the incorrect password message.

It almost never logs me in first attempt....."password incorrect".....always logs me in the second time.
IF YOU REALLY ENJOY THIS SITE AND WISH TO CONTINUE,THEN PLEASE WIGGLE UP TO THE BAR AND BUY A SUBSCRIPTION OR SOME SWAG FROM THE MILNET.CA STORE OR IF YOU WISH TO ADVERTISE PLEASE SEND MIKE SOME DETAILS.

That's very fishy sounding (or maybe even phishy sounding). Some browsers pre-fill in passwords, and if you have changed passwords, they still pre-fill the old one causing a first-time failure. Are you manually typing the password each time? Could be good old-fashioned typos, though most folks find that inconceivable. :)

My recommendation is to never enter your password unless you see the "secure" notice in the address bar, as indicated below. Yep, that means always HTTPS/SSL and that implies always Army.ca (or accept the security warning when you use HTTPS with the other sites).

When you don't use HTTPS, the username/password you enter goes in the clear and you risk it being picked up by The Bad Guys.

If there's a problem with HTTPS then, I'd like to address it... but I can log in and out repeatedly with no rejections so I'm not sure what you're experiencing.

That's still happening with me as well. I'm always on the Army version. The autofill dots are there, showing the number of character strokes, but I always clear and re-type (in case it's an old password).  98% of the time, it works on the second attempt.

And again, it's very minor heartache; I'm just glad the site's up and running.   :nod:
