Exceeded the number of log in attemps?

Postby Chyendra on Mon Feb 14, 2011 6:50 pm

When I tried to log in today (with the proper username and password) it sent me to a page that said you have exceeded the number of log in attempts (this was after 1 attempt?) It worked after I reentered my username, password and a group of security letters. What's the scoop? is there a bug?

I had the same thing a few days ago.

It is likely a security feature triggered by other people attempting to log in on your username. This could be automated bots just trying to hack accounts or it could be specific people for whatever reason, unfortunately I'm not really sure (although would lean towards automated bots).
