I just registered, so far so good. I then logged out, tried to log back in again, but couldn’t. Odd. Kept trying, no dice. Very odd.
I reset my password, just in case, and received the password reset email (which means I got my email address correct, so must have been my password that was incorrect, right?) So I go to reset the password and am met with the error message:
"Your password reset code is invalid or expired"
Any idea what’s going on?
Thing is, I’m not sure my password is incorrect at all - my credentials get stored in “pass” gpg database and are automatically typed in the same way if I am registering or logging in, no difference at all.
I think my credentials have been correct all along and I am wondering are things badly broken (status page says no) or have the front end developers somehow not respected web standards and inadvertently broken “+” addressing in emails? I do this with every site I register on, i.e. email@example.com
The password reset email comes out OK, so the correct email did get stored somewhere, just that I can’t log in with it, nor can I reset the password with it.
I thought about abandoning this, and re-registering with a different email, but I am told that the UUID is already in use. Brilliant.
I believe the + is an issue. This has been posted about in the past. I am not sure if a request to fix has been put in place or not. I use the plus from time to time, it stinks when it does not function.
I’ve just checked the stats: The last short downtime was on May 20, since then it is 100% available, i.e. more than 2 months by now. Huge kudos to @digitaldan and @MARZIMA who have set up that very stable piece of infrastructure!
However, this + email handling is a bug that should be fixed - one that didn’t always exist and at some point got introduced (from reading linked threads above). What’s the best person/way/etc. to report this so it actually gets looked at. It’s going to be some really simple one line encoding issue … somewhere…
If someone knowledgeable can point me in the vague direction (having never looked at the code) I’ll even try and track it down myself.
