This is my third attempt at registering with JavaRanch.
My first registration seemed to have completed successfully because I was shown the profile panel at the end. However, when I tried to post a message using the "stored" user name and password, I received the password incorrect message.
When I asked to have my password sent to my email address, I actually received the user name and password of another user. This is absolutely terrible. This happened not just once but twice.
Giving up on any hopes of recovering my password, I then proceeded to register again with a different user name. This time, I successfully posted my first message. However, when I attempted to post a second message in the same session, I got the password incorrect message.
This time, when I tried to recover my password, I could not even submit my request because there were two user names registered using the same email address.

I deleted 2 users with your email address that had one post each. I left a user with your email address that had 23 posts. Is that you? I can delete that one and you can start fresh, but I'd hate to delete the wrong person.

No, that's definitely not me.
Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.

Unfortunately, it happened again!
I posted a message successfully. However, it won't let me post another message in the same session. I got the incorrect password message although I used the same stored/saved password.
In order to post this message, I registered again using a different user name.

So perhaps your browser is messing up. Try retyping your password instead of using the stored one.
PS, What are you running on?

Cindy,
I tried it both ways, using my stored password and a re-typed password, still the same result. I am running IE 5.5 on a "Windows 2000 Professional" machine.
Thanks!

Since we have never had this kind of a problem before, I have to assume that it is related to the other sign in problems that Jim posted about here.

Something is definitely screwed up. Click on the profile for Kuang and you get "Profile for hina mehr".
