Unable to connect to new Quark forum
« on: June 02, 2008, 11:00:13 AM »
Hi guys!
I jealously see some of you are connected to the new forums at Quarks but on my side I can't manage to login.
The message I get is: "Invalid User Credentials. The username and/or password cannot be validated, or your account is locked out or has not been approved yet." (Though I kept the info from 2004 and everything is OK.)
So I've asked for recovering my password. I got an email with a link but when I click it I get another message: "Access Denied. You do not have permissions to perform the requested action."

What's up over there? Is this one of the new anti-terrorist US action against brave Belgians? Or is it just normal and I simply have to create a brand new login?

Jean Marie, how have you gone on with this are you in yet? I got the email about resetting my password had no issues getting on. Have had one or two with the new site but these are known to the webmaster and hopefully they will be resolved quickly.

Thank you for the interest you take.
Unfortunately I've got no news so far. I'll let you know.

I see you've made yourself a new temporary account until it gets resolved. I would imagine they will have a lot on at the moment with the switch. Good thing is a few of the issues that I was having have already been fixed which is a positive sign. I would agree with Michel and keep out the Belgains unless bribed with chocolate.

In my dialect we say: "C'est todi les p'tits qu'on spotche" (quite untranslatable, like "the small are always smashed" or so).
Hum! Then what? Shall I create a brand new account named "Leonidas" or "Galler" or so with a nice avatar like this one or this one or this one?
Just let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Damn!!!

Looks like the filter does not work here!  ;D

Yes, I could see where "chocolate bribes" would advance your cause...

Kidding aside, I experienced a small "hickup" w/r to my user-account too but as soon as I got though the "forgotten password" scenario, everything cam back as normal... Too bad for them, I keep coming in with new stuff to think about!  ;)

how do I get the chocolate?
glad to see they let you back in to the forums.

As Belgium failed to qualify, who are you supporting for Euro2008?

I'm going for Switzerland... because of the chocolate.
I'm also going for Number 9 in our office sweepstake, but I'll find out which team is 9 tomorrow.

Well, exclusively here in my avatar. That's a "plus" from this forum. You'll only get my face on the other one.  :P

:) Thank you! Though I did manage earlier using all my cleverness and faking an Unwanted guy (Quark cannot suffer Unwanted forum users  ;) ).

No one.  :P (Though my wife is French. I'll have to see. When we got married late June 1998, we went on Honeymoon to Cuba where people caught at once we are "French". The first time a Cuban asked me if I were French I said "No, I'm a Belgian". He soon made me understand Belgium was not so good in the World Cup at that time... Hum! I then said I'm French  :-\ )
Plus Justine gave up. Roland Garros is no more interesting to me  :'(

(This is more of a Sofa Thread  ::) )
The kind of cans in the avatar are full of chocolates called "Langues de Chat", named after the famous "Le Chat" (a sort of philosophical cat with typical belgian humour - great!), designed by Philippe Geluck.
Though belgian beer is very good too  8)

No comment (I don't know why but I dislike Holland and orange... Maybe sth very deep in my unconscious back to time when Holland took over Namur  >:( - like back in the 17th  :-\ - Wikipedia).
