It appears that the database driving the forum software is having a few problems with its tracking of sessions.

If you are currently browsing as a guest, be that as a new user, or a registered one, it is quite likely that you cannot login at present.

Before you login, please read the following so you can restore your ability to browse the forum if your login fails.

If you do try and login you will most likely be presented by a blank page, and any subsequent visits to pages on this forum will cause the same thing to happen.
If this happens to you, you need to delete the session_id cookie for forum.folding-community.org, the name of the cookie is phpbb2fah_sid, then restart your browser to make sure.

As long as you remain as a guest user, you will still be able to browse the forums, and you can track the progress of this problem in this thread: http://forum.folding-community.org/viewtopic.php?t=20820

Users who have set their profile to "Remember me" should not be affected by this problem and can post as normal.

Edit: It appears that the above statement is not entirely accurate. Many people have not been able to login even if they were set to have a permanent cookie, and others can login even if they don't have this setting enabled. So far there doesn't seem to be any discernible pattern to determine who can still login. However, if you can login once, you will probably still be able to do so with susequent attempts.

For those who find they cannot login, there is a discussion going on here: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r18799237-forumfoldingcommunityorg in which several FCF mods are also taking part.

It might be useful if members who can see this post, repost it in their home forums, just to let people know whats going on.
