AK Files ?

I became an akfiles member back when Jen first started it,,,#178.
I really spend no time there, just browse incognito once in awhile.
Recently I signed in to post a few questions on an AR70 thread, which worked and was all good.
Now it wont let me sign in to post at all...I get the 'thanks for signing in' screen and then it resets back to the sign in page, without ever actually signing me in...

Have I been banned there for asking some questions about the guys AR70 build ??

Milling!





Didn't mean to be vague.

Your F5 key is a *reload / refresh / renew* button and might get the forum software to get past the hitch in it's giddyup and get you back inside.

Probably, you were already aware of this magical key?

Ok,,yes,, sorry...Mike actually texted me that that's what you were talking about...
Just call me a dumb ass,,,the thought you were referring to those magical keys never even crossed my mind...I thought you were just fu**ing with me,,lol..

But to tell you the truth, I can barely recall when the last time I even used my computer was.
Between the phone and my tablet, I rarely find I have any need too.
I'll have to fire up the old beast and see if I can fare any better with it...thanks..

Cheers, yv

If you have a Samsung droid phone, hit the soft key to the left of the home key and select "close all", then try again.

If you have an IPhone or Ipad, sorry, you are on your own bro.....

No you have not been banned. I sent moderator "Spook76" a PM about helping you get back on (I have been on there for year's - 100 positive feedback etc.). He has been Johnny on the spot lately over there and I am sure he will do the right thing. Just trying to help...

Got a reply from the Mod and there should be nothing wrong. Contact him directly here on the FAL Files under "Spook76" and he should be able to help. Cheers!

Well, it was worth a try.

Ye olde F5 key is handy to refresh any innerweb page that is acting up and might help you sometime, if you are on a PC or laptop.

Good luck over on the Автомат Калашникова files.

Took like 6 attempts because image verification kept showing nothing but 'internal error', but I did the lost password thing and finally got logged on, using my laptop.
I changed my password, logged out and back on again and am good to go,,,on the laptop I never use..

Then I tried logging on with both phone and tablet with the new info,,,and its a big NOGO.
Both are Samsung android devices, both have issues with and wont sign into akfiles...But work just fine here,,and everywhere else I have to sign into...

Both do the same thing, I type my sign in info and check remember me, but as soon as I hit the 'log in' button they delete my password, hang for a few seconds on the 'thanks for signing in' screen and then go back to the forum as not signed in.

I've reset the auto fill out features with the new info, inputted the info manually, dosent matter how the blanks get filled in...it deletes my password and just wont let me get there from here...

I'm at my limit for now on this,,,I'm heading to the shop..

Yovinny, I had to access AKfiles through a different search engine. Duck Duck Go took me right in with no problems. Ymmv.~ss

I just tried to get in just to see if there was a widespread issue going on. I also have a 3 digit member number. #146 here. No problems on my end. Do you have the option to save passwords and be automatically logged into sites you go to a lot ? Or are you afraid your wife will snoop around on them and find out how much that stuff you bought really cost ?

You likely have a bad cookie. Go to your browser cache and remove any akfiles.com cookies that are there. Then go back to the site and hold shift and press the F5 key on your keyboard. That will force a server refresh to your browser.
