View Full Version : Can't create cgsociety membership

02 February 2010, 07:19 AM
I'm entering my cgtalk username and password here:

But it says it's not valid. I have double checked by logging out of cgtalk and then typing in my username/password and I can get in no problem. But, this page does not work. Please help! I'm in dire need of membership, cause I'm in dire need of buying FumeFX, cause I'm in dire need of SMOKE.

Aha! Figured it out. My password (not to divulge personal info) has an ampersand in it. Having enjoyed many years of backend programming, I figured your systems must not agree about the legitimacy of using special characters.

So, I changed my CGTalk password to not include an ampersand, and boom! now I can use my username and password to create a cgsociety membership.

Anybody know where I can file this bug?
