Same here. I've been logged in as RayA and Bart B. Keeps logging me out and I cant see new posts sometimes.

The way I look at web sites that have logins is that there are two kinds, one is for financial, medical or similar types that I absolutely don't want hacked. The other (the most common) are web forums or non-critical sites where if it is hacked I merely suffer inconvenience. Looking at the problem that way I never use simple or common passwords for the critical type logins. For web forums like ENTS I'm much less concerned about "criminal hackers".

Non-commercial forums like the ENTS-BBS are constantly under attack, it is possible that ENTS BBS was hacked but it's equally possible that a glitch in the BBS configuration is causing the recent issues.

I agree with Andrew. It is more of a hassle than anything. It does reinforce why you shouldn't use the same passwords for your BBS or YouTube login as you would for your bank or eBay or anything else financial or super personal.

And so the ENT board malfunctions continue.

Today, having to login when I should already be, and being logged out automatically.

I suspected that problem would show it's face when another one appeared. The new posts listed a new post for May 17th in the topic a magnificent menziezii ... when I viewed the topic, there were no new posts. Just an old one from May 2nd or 3rd which I already read, which had already been shown as a "new" post way back when.

The board was OK for a few days- now it's messed up again- too many ways to mention. The files on the server must be messed up.

If i click "new posts" it shows me the same two from day ago, and nothing new since then even though others have been posting.
