Martin - not sure exactly what is happening but downloading and using Spider (free from http://www.fsm.nl/ward/ ) which will not only remove cookies, temp internet files, and such, but will also remove the little database file that stores that information even after you think you've deleted it. The database files are recreated after you reboot and when you first start your browser so no harm can be done.
The only other possibility I can think of is your user name might be screwed up on the site. MySQL (which I think runs this bbs) is known to do that occasionally. Fix would be either make a new user name for yourself (bummer since you lose your high Status) or get the current one fixed by whoever does programming for this site.
If you can log on whilst you post but cannot log on from the top of the forum the problem is to do with the cookie that the forum uses not being accepted by your PC.
When this happens it is generally because the PC is telling your browser that it already exists and therefore doesn't need it.
Are you on Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5, if so downloading IE6.0 will solve the problem and give you the option of selecting which cookies you accept.
Sorted, it was a problem at this end. For some reason your latest password was not entered into the database.
I have reset your account to use your previous password.
If you have forgotten what this is use the link to be reminded of it or send me an email and I will let you know
