Website Login and Access

During the migration from the old website to the new website less than 40 members were cross matched with valid email addresses from the old website to the membership list Gary Emsweller has. 

If you have updated information, including email address, please submit a message on the Contact page (http://www.masseycollectors.com/Contact) or go to the Commmittees page (http://www.masseycollectors.com/Board/Committee-Chairs) and contact Gary Emsweller with your updated information.

You are welcome to try your old username or email address to retrieve a new password by going to the Login page (http://www.masseycollectors.com/Special/Login) and clicking on the Forgot Password link.  Enter your username or email address and if either is on file, your information will be sent to you. 

Thank you for your patience!

RE:Website Login and Access

Brenden, Joe and Gary,

At long last I am signed in, it has taken me almost two days to get into this new site!!!

I understand from the emails received you had my name incorrectly printed on your list, with that corrected this morning I have gone through two "forgotten password" attempts to get onto here, finally made it and hope other members find it easier than I did.

Was begining to wonder if we had keyboard differences across the pond as I tried all combinations of the first password and it would just not work.

Good luck everyone and hope we now see members coming back to the long awaited MCA website.

RE:Website Login and Access

Just an FYI on the "Remember Me" feature. If you enter your username and password information and check the Remember Me box and log in, it will only "Remember You" if you DON'T click the Sign Out button. Clicking the Sign Out button will remove the "cookie" on your computer that stores the remembered information.

There is another feature that different browsers use as well and this will automatically populate the username and password with your credentials, this feature is separate from the checkbox on the login page.

Thanks Frogeye!!

I think folks might think that if you tell it to "Remember me" that it will remember you even after you log out and come back the next day.  That is not correct. Right?  It will on remember you as long as you stay connected to your browser AND you didn't sign off.  Correct??

That is right, it WILL NOT remember you if you click Sign Out.

It will remember you as long as you don't click the Sign Out button.  The way to do this is to log in (checking the Remember Me box as well) and just closing your browser window to exit the site or navigate to another site.  Then if you come back later that day, week, month you will see you are already logged in.  The key is to not click the log out button.

RE:Website Login and Access

Brenden,  I tnink if it could remember us from day to day it would be much easier, or at least remember our name so we don't have to enter so often.  I might check my computer in the morning, noon and nite, but I don't leave it connected to the web all day.  Is this something that can be changed?  Kurt

RE:Website Login and Access

Kurt-

The website will remember you from day to day as long as you don't click the Sign out button.  For security reasons (that have been a huge problem with the website in the last 7-8 years) there will not be a change made as we don't want to compromise the security of the website and files needed to run the website. 

This website's login and security meets or exceeds common standard and functionality of other websites.  In my personal opinion as someone who writes code nearly all day every day for websites, its best to not have a "remember me" feature or have a browser remember your password as of someone were to enter your home and steal your computer, all they would have to do is turn on the computer and start browsing to your favorite sites and automatically log in.  Although this website doesn't have a lot of secure data on it, it is still good to keep your password and username in a safe place.

RE:Website Login and Access

Wrong.....it will not remember you from day to day. I have never logged out and it still requires me to sign in each day.

RE:Website Login and Access

This is what I was trying to say.  I was signed in reading the above post and when I clicked on to reply, I had to completely sign in again.  I look at lots of sites that remember me completely and even eBay at least remembers my name.  If we want this site to be user friendly and get used, I think this feature needs to be updated.
