Message Board Issues/technical Problems

Recommended Posts

I went to the NHL site, made a new password, and it still doesn't work when I try to sign in here or at NHL. But I can sign in at the NHL site via Facebook and then come here. 

 

Yet another example of why hockey is the red-headed step child of team sports.

 

Hmmm that should work, I had to reset a password for this site, but once I changed it everything was ok.

To be clear; the new password was accepted and I was signed in with it. But when i signed out and came back it wouldn't work again.

I still can not sign on to the message boards directly, I have to go through NHL.com first with the new password I had to create.  This board will not accept either my new or old password.

I just reset my password and all was good.....though my password already complied to the rules...

I tried that on the boards directly but it is not recognizing my new or old password to be able to make that happen.

What browser are you using?

I tried it on both Chrome and Safari...to no avail. 

 

 

I did it in Edge but that should not matter...however, I did basically just clear all stored browser data before I made the reset request.

 

Just odd that there would be differences in how effective the change has been for people.

The only way I am able to sign in is to go to nhl.com and sign in there. Directly signing in at these forums fails.

 

I use firefox and I don't have any stored browser data, I don't have any history retained or anything like that.

Hi. Not a technical issue as such but I was unable to log in with my previous password (or what I thought was my previous password), so I asked for a new one. The thing is the email adress I used to create my former account (the_jhawker) was not the main one I use on daily basis, so I also forgot the password for that secondary email adress. And the security questions were not of any help since I was not smart enough to provide obvious answers 8 years ago.

Therefore, I am back as a rookie now... No big deal but it is going to take some time to get back to my previous amount of posts. I just wanted to share my experience.

 

How could I knew in 2009 that I would still be on this message board after so many years (and cups :) )?!

Try logging on at NHL.com with your old id and password, then coming here.

It works, thanks a lot !

 

I have to say I had to log via Chrome. When I was using firefox, clicking "sign in to nhl.com" was not doing anything. But it may be linked to my ad blockers.

 

But it is quite a journey just to log to these boards. :)

 

Edit : I tried again log in in NHL.com via firefox, and it it works just fine...

 

Edit2 : I manage to change my email address for "the_jhawker" account to a working one, but I had to log in/log out a few times to do so (first it was saying my password was incorrect -> log in/log out -> tried again and it seemed to work -> log in/log out -> still the old email address so tried again -> log in/log out -> finally the new address (gmail) is taken into account).

 

With the few log in/log out, it seems I can now use directly the blackhawks website and not go to NHL.com first.

 

I don't know how to delete an account, but "jhawker" should be erased now that everything seems back to normal.

 

Thanks for the help :)

Hi. Just to say that I just logged with my nickname (not email address) and (new) password and it works perferctly. And the email address is also the new one, so everything seems fix for me. :)

 

I would like to be able to say the same for the Hawks though :P

something is wrong with message boards.It looks horrible, stretched to wide screen and aligned to center.

I don't have an issue that it's stretched wide, but is it possible at least to allign to left? On the first glance, the previous form appeared to me more "user friendly".

I noticed the new home page design yesterday but the MB was the same,today the format is wider.........much like myself!

I liked the old design of both much better but to be totaly honest,I'm happy the MB isn't gone all together like has happened with other NHL teams.

 

 

 

GO HAWKS!!!!!
