    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 ;)

    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.

    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

    Dan, I don't know how else to explain it. You're logging in with the wrong email address, which created the new account. You need to log in with your OLD email address to be "Houdini" again.

    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?

    Houdini, I am impressed!  To allow the variables in life to expose you to the world as “Dan Hood” is magnanimous!  This feels like a “James Bond” Novel where code names are revealed.   :D
    Wait, does that mean when I log out and log back in my actual name will appear instead of oldfarmer50? That would be a real invasion of privacy for those who wish to remain anonymous. Hope I'm misunderstanding.

    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.

    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.

    You're really confusing us now. Is this post from the real jmonroe as in the signature or the imposter jmonroe1 as in the header?

    It must be from the imposter as it is short and sweet. :D

    We do care. We now have more sophisticated ways of checking whether an email is valid. Also, as opposed to the previous system, this one won't let you register with a temporary or shared email address (e.g., mailinator), which are preferred by spammers everywhere.

    Not sure what your point is. If a person thinks Edmunds is full of incompetent fools, I'd probably not bother being here. FYI, I can fix the problem stated. I just can't do it here because it requires some communication that probably should remain private.

    I know I can leave a comment here because it (Edmunds software) gives me a comment box. Just checking. I am having trouble logging in on my desktop, which is a real drag, because that's the preferred method of plopping pics of 4-cyl econocars I love so much. 

    I know you guys love 'em too. Right?  :)

    @Kirstie_H / @PF_Flyer - Don't take any of the flack personally. Change can be painful, but you're doing a great job managing it. I deal with varying types of SSO implementations in my professional life and they never go perfectly, but this is definitely one of the better I've seen.

    As to logging in on my desktop, a few posts back Dan Hood was describing what's happening when he tries to log on. Same thing here. 

    There's no way to 'reset' things, at least right now, which just sets us back in the circular rat-stepper spinning our wheels some more. I'm just gonna take a step back for a while and do some grocery shopping with Mrs. iluvmysephia1.   ;)

    The trick for an old email address that you don't really use anymore is that you need to update your email address first, then do the rest of that stuff. Not that this helps now, but I would think the admins could simply delete the new account and set you back to the old account only.

    I can delete accounts in here, but cannot delete accounts in Insider once they're made. It's not my product so I don't have access to do that. I can try updating individual email accounts in old accounts, but I can't guarantee what name they'll be associated with, at all.

    Firefighter - I really don't take things personally. I'd just prefer not to be personally insulted, nor have our extended team members insulted. If there's a problem, I've said multiple times that I am happy to assist via [email protected], and I'm working with the members who have come there. Sometimes these transitions don't go smoothly, and I recognize that, and we'll do everything we can to make it right.
