Login Problem

Postby Mizora » Sun Dec 25, 2011 9:29 am

This isn't exactly a problem, it's more of an inconvenience. When I login, I type my username in and then quickly type in my password. Sometimes I'm typing so fast I mess up the password and I have to retype it. The only problem is, my username has been removed as well as the password so I have to type them both in again.
It's not a major problem, but it's annoying and wastes time (it's also the only website I've seen that does it). So, if anything can be done...well, thanks! :)

Actually, that one's a security measure. Theoretically, it protects accounts from a script designed to crack passwords by not making it clear if it was the username or password that was incorrect.

Oh ok. If it's a security measure, why don't other sites have it?

Well, it's not necessarily something every website has by default, it adds a very minimal layer of security so many places don't bother. It's entirely possible it was never supposed to be here intentionally either, but I've seen the same strategy used in a lot of financial websites (banks, PayPal, etc), and it's one we covered when we went over basic computer security measures in one of my classes.

Unfortunately, I'm just a moderator and can't make code changes, so I can't fix it even if I wanted to. We'd need to PM Matt about it.
