    Yeah, we're tracking, @monroe-somebody! I can't imagine that more than one of you would want to hang here anyway. It just isn't big enough for multiple Monroes. B)

    Could you try to log in again - the same way you previously logged in, and got the password message? To my knowledge, that is not a message anywhere in our system.

    I tried to log on the same way I used to but I get a blank page.
    Snake, I mean the new way - Log out, then click the "Log In or Register" button found on forums.edmunds.com. Then, click "sign in" on the pop up, way down at the bottom of the pop-up. Enter your email address associated with your original account, and the password you chose when registering for Insider with that email. THEN, let me know the exact wording of any error message you get.

    OK I kept getting that same no account associated with the email message. I tried everything, going to the full site, clearing out my browser history, cookies and everything but nothing worked. Then several hours later Edmund's sent me an email with a link to continue my registration (A big thanks to PF Flyer who got my email changed). So now I am back, but why did it take so long to get that email?

    Handsome as ever, snake.

    Well I'm not. Still sunburned but that started before the switch over. If I used my old email, that was also wrong eventhough I tried to change it many times over the years, I would not have recevied the confirmation email with the link to complete my Insider Account. This new monster has not been close to what it was supposed to be, at least not for me, but I'm not the least bit surprised. The reverse would have surprised me.

    Perhaps PF_Flyer or Kirstie can help you out jmonroe.  I need to have you happy and spunky again - mods please help jmonroe with this! 

    FWIW, I don't need help...I need looked after. :'(

    Thanks for the suggestion anyhow.

    I just went back into my profile page and that field with the email address is no longer there. Maybe it got removed as part of this switchover?

    I guess I'll be eligible for pull forward from mid November onward, unless they change the 6 payment scheme. Still not sure what I want to do - if I can buy out this car at a reasonable price, I probably will, if not, I have a world of options.

    The only way I can even get in is by going incognito, which was suggested by Edmunds, and ironically going incognito shows my name to everyone, which raises all sorts of issues. Now I am getting an email from Edmunds alerting me each time someone makes a post ! I can't delete them fast enough. I have to sign in thru my google acct and use the gmail acct and password, which is different from my old hotmail acct. and password. I am afraid I am doomed !! Heck, what if I had been in a witness protection program.

    It seems like you are the poster boy for things having gone wrong during the change out.

    Hope you can get back to your houdini nom de plume.

    To turn off those emails, go to the gear symbol, from the flydown menu pick edit profile. Then pick notifications, the second down the list. Turn off the emails for posts.

    I recall long ago we had another Monroe here and his accounts got mixed up. He ended up signing back in with a new user name, Sterlingdog. I don't recall his original user name--too many goldfish have swum around the bowl in my head to recall.

    If you are at the main forums screen with the box on the right containing your (new) user name, click on the user name to take you to the Profile screen. Click the little box with the head and down arrow in the top right to edit your profile. Then click on the "Notification Preferences" item on the left side to go in there and turn them off.

    Houdini,
    If you're saying you're not sure how to do what I suggested to turn off notifications... If you're
    in the right user name for which they're being sent, this may help.

    Are you able to see this in the right hand top of the screen you're logged into?

    That's the spot... all those check boxes. As a mod, I've always bookmarked a lot of discussions. ONCE, I tried email notifications. That might work for someone following a single thread they don't want to miss anything in, but if you use it for multiple discussions, or a busy one like this one (or worse yet, multiple threads with busy ones mixed in), it can be an inbox nightmare :)

    I worded that poorly. The forums are there, but I can't find any discussions on them from the past several days. They all show closed threads or threads that have been idle for some time. Did a setting change?

    Now that I look, it seems the default sorting changed. I find newer discussions in the middle of the list. Gotta find a way to fix that.

    Aha, I went and browsed by Classic Cars and I see what you mean. Nice catch! Likely unrelated to the login switch, there is always work going on at Vanilla, so it's possible some setting got flipped. Many thanks for bringing it to our attention!

    Really appreciate the extra sets of eyes looking into the corners that we may not look into every day.

    Looking into it. Definitely something about the sorting. It's odd that things like Recent Discussions, Bookmarks, etc. are sorting they way they always have, but inside topics, or make/models, it got wacky.

    Again, thanks for catching this. The login stuff had NOTHING to do with our forums software, so this is just an unrelated glitch. Wonderful timing though ;)

    Not a complete workaround, but when you look at the list of discussions tagged "Classic Cars", the list is generally reversed. Oldest discussions on page 1, newest on page 11. Within each page they sort to newest on top

    When I try to do that, it says there is already an acct. under my old name. I did find the confirmation letter that I was supposed to click on and send back in my junk mail file today. I clicked and sent it back, but nothing changed. It was probably me who screwed this up and I am not blaming Edmunds, just trying to fix it. Thx for helping !

    I can log into insider normally, but when I go to forums it says "Howdy Stranger" and asks me to log into the forum. That is where it just runs me in a circle.

    I filled the tank of the S450 yesterday at Costco.  I paid $305.9 a gallon for PUG.  That price is about 20 cents a gallon cheaper than any gas station within 5 miles of where I live.  I thought gasoline prices were dropping but I guess I was wrong.  

    Between higher gas prices, higher food prices, etc.  I suspect inflation is increasing even with the rise in interest rates.  I wonder if we’ll see higher prices on imported new cars and SUV’s.  Much is dependent on the price of steel and aluminum as well as pending tariffs on imported cars.  Time will tell.

    I think you can count on all of that happening. None of it is good!

    Thanks again to everyone for letting us know when things seem amiss. It's always very helpful to have folks who are using the site on a daily basis on the lookout. I may work here, but I don't get everywhere as often as the combined group does.

    The sorting issue is being caused by an issue with the tagging which is what the sorts are based on. Nothing at all to do with the login. It's been reported to the people who take care of those issues.

    For now, if you're looking for discussions on any particular topic or make/model, just remember the newer discussions will be found on the LAST page of discussions until the tagging issue is resolved.

    Make use of those Bookmarks by clicking that star at the top on the discussion page to make it gold and then you can click My Discussions to follow your list of Bookmarks. (which will be sorted by latest post, as usual)



    Vanilla has been really good about these things for us, so the fix shouldn't take too long. Thanks for bearing with us!

    Ok, so I screwed up. I tried to sign up as an insider under a new email. I got an email confirmation. Then I backtracked and tried to use the old AOL email to sign in that I haven’t looked at in YEARS. It won’t let me. I get the same message as @houdini1. Should I just sign up as a new user with a new email or is there a chance at redemption?

    Hey, that's what I was thinking about doing. Edmunds doesn't care about a member having a valid email, they just want one. How are they going to get redemption if you keep creating new accounts with bogus emails, passwords and user names? Like an old boss used to say when you try to get someone to fix a system that isn't working and they don't..."keep using it until it breaks". Sounds good to me.

    EDIT: I don't expect this post to last very long, so hurry up and read it.
