ok you guys, I will cut off the forums after VIP from showing up in the gadget for a while, and you can test and let me know if the problem persists.

Hi Aaron,

Sounds very much like it, as you and I are both Moderators whereas Mr GRiM and Limneos are not.

Have you tried Disk Cleanup with the gadget and sidebar closed? and it didn't work?

It looks like we are removing the links to SF Team and the staff lounge, I wounder who could be doing that.

Hi Limneos I thought it was you, looks like we might have found the culprit, I hope.

Have tried cleaning IE files, temp. cookies and such, but to no avail. Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no help. Any ideas.

Edit: have tried autologin, nothing. tried manual login and get the wait 15 mins warning.
Hi Gary,

Did you get an email entitled Failed Login Notification on Windows 7 Forums, and if so, did it mention the IP address 72.55.179.102?

This IP is my server's IP...Sevenforums server blocks my server from trying to authenticate after 5 unsuccessful logins

Thanks, Elias, that clears that up. However, the perplexing question is why this is happening, as I've had this happen to me a few times now, and I'm entering my login details manually (which I know ARE correct). I have even created a text file, and tried copying and pasting from that to ensure that I don't inadvertantly make an error, but this makes no difference.

This time, the icons showed until the first refresh, after which they disappeared again. I also tried closing and re-opening the gadget, but the icons didn't appear again.

Can you temporarily cut out the VIP forum as well, as this is also a privileged area, to see if that makes any difference.

Incidentally, have you noticed that you now have access to the SF Team?

I believe it happens right now because I'm doing updates to the main script, and when it fails to open it, it causes unsuccessful logins? maybe.

The gadget is coming up with a new feature that I hope you will like...

Dwarf, it is your ip that has caused the 15 minutes blockage, and I see that you have attempted to login as frawd instead of Dwarf. Those unsuccesful logins may cause this blockage. I can't tell if you have the credentials correct, cause I can't see the encrypted passwords and of course I don't know your correct login info, but in any case I trust you when you say you got them right.

However, something is causing bad login attempts from you,it might be switching from guest to registered user. Try not opening the gadget for a while until the 15 minutes time has passed, then try to login again using your correct data.

Meanwhile, I'll check what causes the misauthentications

Never mind, don't do anything. I made a mistake on the script and it was adding garbled data to the username and passwords when sending them

Fixed it. Just wait 5-10 minutes and try again
