    Problem with the Message Board?

    I thought I read something concerning this message board where posters had trouble logging in, etc. I looked for it in order to post this question, but couldn't find it in my listing of past postings. Anyway, is there a problem with this message board with logging in, etc? After having trouble a couple weeks ago with logging in, and then being able to, I tried to login a few days and couldn't. Now, after checking everyday I am still logged in. Any news on this? I was going to call, but luckily for me today it showed I am logged in.

    I couldn't login to the message board on Saturday or Sunday but things seem back to normal today.

      I couldn't log on for several days. E-mailed the TaxBook and received the following:

      "Thanks for the email. Apparently we were having message board issue for the last week or so. I apologize for the trouble. We have taken steps to ensure this won't happen again and have written some more code to prevent it in the future. Hopefully this will be the last of it."

        I thought it was a new requirement to Login first to view messages? But now you can view messages without logging in.

          I just stay logged in except when something weird happens (rarely) and I've been logged out.

          Just curious: If you DON'T log in, aren't you indirectly losing some TTB forum functions such as the blue button that takes you directly to the first unread message in a previously-viewed thread?? (Obviously you would also be losing private message capabilities?)

          As for the past weekend outage, it seems to have been in place for roughly Sat and Sun. Not the first occurrence of such. Most of the other functions on TTB were responding with "cannot access server" or something like that. I figured it would be resolved on Monday without any inquiry on my part. . .and it was.

            Have always been able to view messages w/o logging in. Have to login to post or view user profiles.

              I believe the post in question was titled "Test" posted by Lion. An email notification regarding that thread indicates one of the last posts was made 9/29/19. The link in the email to the discussion (https://forum.thetaxbook.com/node/299298) pulls up a page that says "Invalid Page". The topic "Test" no longer shows up in the list and there are no topics dated 9/28 to 9/30. For some reason the topic was deleted.

                Thanks for any responses to my inquiry. I guess I did not lose my mind. Glad to hear all is ok now. Just want to be able to utilize the message board.

                  I was able to get in and post when a colleague could not; therefore, my Test post. Then I received only 404 error messages. Then the avatar changed from the red X to a white V and when I tried to login, I received another page to login, which brought up another login page and so on and so on. I was out of town for a couple days. Tonight I am back here, signing in, reading, and now posting. Did TTB get hacked and move to a new platform?

                    TTB said they are transitioning to a single sign on platform as opposed to the three different ones they have now and it is taking longer than expected. I assume hiccups are endemic to the transition.

                      So I'm guessing TaxBook, not Lion, deleted his "Test".

                        Your guess sounds accurate to me.
