    Default HWZ not working anymore?

    Hi,

    Is it just me or can anyone else still access the hwz forums? I keep getting:

    You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    You are not logged in. Fill in the form at the bottom of this page and try again.

    You do not have permission to access the page that you were trying to. Are you trying to edit someone else's post or trying to access administrative features? Check that you are allowed to perform this action in the Forum Rules.

    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    Regards

    LATEST UPDATE
    HWZ Forums is DOWN no matter how much you do above. I guess keep checking the main page at HWZ for new information.

    You cannot post, but can read.

    Clear browser cookie! Wha I hope everyone knows how to do it. There sure would be people who will be super blur.

    How to Delete Cookies

    ------------------------

    1. Go to the forum page. Click LOG OUT.
    2. Close your IE browser.
    3. Presuming you are logged on as adminstrator... open windows explorer and go to...

    - Documents and Settings
    + Adminstrator
    + Cookies

    Just delete all the files in here. Simple as it is.
    4. Open IE again and start up the forum page. Everything should work.

    Why not ask all users over here that post in hwz to put up clubsnap link as signature?

    I think like that also. I really cannot understand what are they doing??!! Well, compare to dpreview forum, I prefer local forum.Those "ang mo " really something, can talk for few paragraphs just for 1 or 2 topics. Everytime when I view any replied thread, feel sweat! Nightmare there. Their "breath" really long!!

    Finally , I love this forum. Just that the design a bit dull, I meant the colours and background. (If don't mind this is what in my mind. Shhh....... can imitate last time the HWZ one (that one blue in colour one arh......very nice)) Since this forum gives the impression similar to HWZ, why don't give it a try? Or the coding very difficult to do?

    Lastly, I think if the following questions can be answered, then, I would probably have more confident here:

    a) Is this a non-profit org? Then who will sponsor for the server? and where all the $$$ come (must have some backing power!)
    b) How is this forum going to run? By who, administrator? Is there any management boards here?If so, will it becomes another HWZ in future, means that this is just a beginning, in future, will develope into the shape of HWZ?
    c) Now, (because it is still new) the speed is fast! How about in future.

    (nothing very serious, just curious)

    I think there has been quite a bit of concern about the apparent "goodness" of this forum, so let me just address your questions here for everyone's benefit.

    This is not an organisation at all (even though the domain name might suggest so, its just like my domain name has a .com but it isn't a commerical entity). The $$$ mostly comes from the Core Team Members who have opted to contribute varying amounts monthly and get amounts of webspace and other server facilities that are agreed on by all of us. The hardware... well, let's just say we have had a (or two?) philanthropist(s) who kindly donated but opted to stay anonymous. And no, there are no links to any commercial entity at all.

    b) How is this forum going to run? By who, administrator? Is there any management boards here?If so, will it becomes another HWZ in future, means that this is just a beginning, in future, will develope into the shape of HWZ?
    This forum and the accompanying website (to be launched soon I hope) will be maintained by volunteers (see definition here) mainly amongst the Core Team Members and probably some of the users here. And I must stress this, we have NO intention of allowing this site to become anything like HWZ. Honestly, to have this, we will need the strong support (for e.g. donations to supplement running costs and future equipment purchases are always welcomed) from both the Core Team Members as well as regular members like yourself.

    c) Now, (because it is still new) the speed is fast! How about in future.
    Yes, it certainly is fast. And we plan to do whatever we can to keep it this way. So in the future, if we ask for donations to supplement equipment purchases, I hope the response will be good.

    (nothing very serious, just curious)
    I hope all these answers your doubts and queries?
