I like it. It makes me feel special, and 1984 is one of my favourite books. Furthermore one could imagine the need for logon being preparation for some future superforum with unimaginable features all part of the ultimate flying experience. At least that's what I hope for. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There's been a lot of website hacking lately, so this is one method of preventing anonymous hacking. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It was stated a while back they would start checking arbitrarily.
I was unlogged yesterday while online, just logged back in, remember to check the "Remember me on this computer" box and everything OK.

Noticed this too lately. About 25% of the time I need to login to get into the forums. It might cut down on hacking but its got to be annoying to newcomers looking here for help. I had that happen with BobII: WoV. It was giving me lockup problems so I went to their forums looking for help. Had to make a username to have access to the forums, but it took days to get activated.

Maybe unrelated but a few months back I was having problems where I'd try to enter the forums here and I'd get a screen saying my IP address had been banned from the server. I'd never posted anything at that point so I don't see how I could have earned a ban.

Sometimes I get in without logging on, but most of the time I get an error message saying I am already logged in and that I must log in again.

+1.

If for example someone were banned from the forums but still used the forums as an aid to find out when patches would be avalable for some of Ubi's more craptastic bug fests then they would have to create a second account in oreder to research solutions to the in game problems they face in many of their Ubisoft games. Of course the creation of this second account is against the rules and they would be closer to having their IP banned which would permenantly cut them off from any form of customer support availavble to them.
So please Ubisoft forum rule making person please change this.

I have to log in about 1/3rd of the time to post, but viewing the forums is fine.

Isnt this the second time this year the forums gone on the p*$$?

Hmmm...I recall a solution someone suggested the last time the board went wacky. It was around the time of the release of the Pe-2 expansion.

I think (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) you need to go to the main UBI website and log in from there (being sure to check the "keep me logged in..." box) and then logout. This resets your cookie if I'm not mistaken.

If I am mistaken then...well...that's what you get for taking advice from a stranger...

Yeah, but do the mods have some "red phone" to the UBI gods?

Well...tried it myself...went to UBI's homepage and logged out and then back in and then closed the browser.

Haven't had a problem since. Anyone still suffering from this?

No way I would join a forum unless I had been able to read through it some. I think this will just turn a lot of would be new members off, then what are you left with, a dying community.

i'm sure the Atari forums will run better. most around here are not fans of UBI.

here's the Atari - 1c Games relationship

we'll be over at Atari's forums come December (i'm guessing)
