    Error while logging in. Failed login quota. Why does it happen?

    I've had many problems with logging in the forum in the recent months. Although I type in my user and password correctly, very often the following error is displayed:

    "vBulletin Message

    Wrong username or password. You have used up your failed login quota! Please wait 15 minutes before trying again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!"


    I try again after 15 minutes with the same result. Then I have to wait another 15 minutes and, if I'm lucky, after a few attempts I can finally log in in the forum. It is extremely annoying. Does anybody else have the same problem? What is the reason? Can it be repaired?

    I have had the same experience during the last few months as well. Don't know why - and as you I have not discovered any other 'solution' than just trying again and hoping to be lucky. However, I don't have the patience to wait for 15 minutes - I have been able to log in succesfully imediately after being rejected by a 'failed login quota'.

    Thanks for your reply mate! At least I know now, that I don't have to wait 15 minutes for another login!

    You're welcome. But it is still very annoying, because sometimes I have to try many times before success. However - today the login worked at first attempt, so perhaps the problem is fixed now. Fingers crossed :-)

    Today it worked at first attempt for me as well, but I'm not sure that it is fixed. Maybe I was lucky?
    Using private messages I found more people that have / had the same problem, but they don't know any solution. Well, at least we know that we are not alone

    I get this constantly and it seems only password reset helps, and not even that always. It's very frustrating.

    This has just started happening to me too.

    It's PITA and my PC is playing up generally since a Windows Update...
