How come I can't log in to the FAC main page? I typed in my username and password correctly (didn't get any error messages), but the FAC main page still says "you are one of the guests". However, I can log in to the FAC forums just fine. What the heck is going on?

The FAC main site and FAC forums are two separate login sessions -- logging in to the FAC main site does not log you in to the forums, neither does logging in to the forums log you in to the main site. You can easily tell if you are logged in to the FAC main page or not because when you are, you will see "Add Fanwork" and "Edit Profile" options on the tabs at the top; when you aren't, you will see "Login" and "Register" instead.

This is one of FAC's oldest and most persistent problems; it seems to happen at random, and refuses to go away. Sadly we have no guaranteed "cure" for this problem -- but here are a few tips:
  • Make sure that your Internet browser cookies are enabled -- cookies are required to store your login sessions.
  • Make sure you are using the www.fanart-central.net domain (yes, that's with the hyphen). Alternate spellings of FAC's URL (e.g., "fanart-central.net " or "www.fanartcentral.net") may not always work.
  • Make sure you are using an up-to-date browser such as IE5, Firefox, NS6, (or newer).
  • Flush/clear your Internet cache and cookies, then try to log in again.
  • Quit and restart your Internet browser (and/or computer), then try again.

Sometimes the problem will seem to go away on its own after following one or two of the steps listed above. Lastly, do not panic or assume YOU are to blame for this problem -- it has been around for a very long time; you aren't by far the first to have problems logging in, and you might not be the last one to encounter it either.

I can't log in now. <_<

This is a little weird. I can't even get my user name or password into the little box. I click on it, and that little line flashes once, but then it goes away. I continue to do this, but the thing still keeps blinking and going away. Is it just my computer? or is there something wrong with the login page?



EDIT: nvm. I got it. Sorry to bug you. Cool

You mean tamper? Uneasy ... Or something.

I don't think anyone can change your password unless you are logged in. If you haven't changed it then it shouldn't of been altered. Did you change you password on the forum?

I read the FAQ and did everything in my possible knowledge, enabled cookies, upgraded my web browser, everything the FAQ says, but I still can't login, my brother even helped me, and he's a computer expert, but no matter what I can't login, I'm getting annoyed Banghead more like angry. My username is
Link_the_hedgehog_magician

My web browser is Internet Explorer

The page that wouldn't log me on was the FAC homepage: www.fanart-central.net

I didn't get an error message.

If you've tried about all the suggestions then we can't give much more help than that, I'm afraid. :(

But for the record, what Windows do you have?

I have done everything you said to do. Could it just be my computer? I am getting annoyed Banghead by the fact I haven't been able to login in for a very long time. Since February of this year.

Wait! I fixed up my computer and now it lets me log in! All I did was re-format it. Mayber, your computer was doing the same thing as mine.

Um...... How do you re-format and enable cookies, because I can't login to the homepage either. I am kind of lost in those types of areas. Tell me what to do before I lose my mind. Banghead That is not a good thing what so ever.

Confused I can log into the forums but I cannot log into the main website. I've been trying this for about a year now, and recently I just logged into the main website and it said my screenname listed on who is online. However, there are no "Add Fanwork" or anything of the sort after I log in. It always does this to me and I'm wondering why. Is there anyone who can help me out here? Crying or Very sad

The "Add Fanwork" font color is terrible. Hover your mouse around (or just try highlighting the area) to the right of where your username is at the top right of the page. You should find the link eventually. 8D

Umm...When I signed on, the sign-in thing is still there. My i.d. is not shown or anything. It looks just like I've never signed on even though I am signed on. >.> <.< So...Help.

Ok. I try to log in but it sends me to the main page, but then when I go to the "Who's Online" page my name is there. I click on it and when I go to my profile it says I'm online. But the thing is I can't comment and when it sends me to the main page, my name isn't at the top right corner. I don't know what to do! And it's been like this since February of 2006! Banghead I have a Windows XP.
