View Full Version : Grrr...Sign in to WHAT?

03-16-2006, 01:28 PM
Is anyone else getting a prompt to sign into cp.timeinc.net "staging area"? I've been having that pop up anytime I click on anything for the last little while and the page won't load until I hit cancel. :mad:

I'm wondering if this is my computer being a jerk, or some sort of glitch in the boards themselves.


03-16-2006, 01:29 PM
The latter - I just started getting it, too.

03-16-2006, 01:30 PM
Same thing is happening to me and no matter how many times I put in my user name and password the same thing keeps happening.

03-16-2006, 01:30 PM
Just continue to hit cancel - it looks like a bug somewhere!

03-16-2006, 01:30 PM
Glad to see it isn't just me, but MAN is this annoying!

03-16-2006, 01:34 PM
Same here!

Yep! I'm getting it too!

03-16-2006, 01:40 PM
So it isn't just me. I just keep one hand on the mouse and one hand on the "enter" botton of my keboard. Everytime I click my mouse to go somewhere I press enter 3 times to get rid of the darn thing!

03-16-2006, 01:45 PM
Eek! What a fascinating thing. :P

03-16-2006, 01:47 PM
Only seems to be in the message board area.
Rest of site it doesn't come up.

03-16-2006, 01:50 PM
I'm getting it too.

*poof* until it gets fixed.

I'm getting it too! Hope Jennifer sees our comments and can help!
(Drives ya crazy, doesn't it?!)

I sent Jennifer a PM.

A staging area is a server where test versions of web pages can be posted & tested before being added to the "real" server. This is some sort of crossed-wires glitch regarding the staging & production servers for this site. The username/password prompt has NOTHING to do with your BBS account. Just keep clicking Cancel and you should be able to use the site just fine until it's resolved.

Yeah, this could make many people unhappy having to deal with this pop-up.

03-16-2006, 02:02 PM
I'm getting it too! Totally annoying...

03-16-2006, 02:04 PM
want to strangle the thing!

03-16-2006, 02:11 PM
Well, this is certainly a huge PITA! Hope help is on the way.

03-16-2006, 04:20 PM
Egads! Glad it's not just me....

Didn't have it this morning when I logged on, but I sure have it now.

Just started cruising around the afternoon CLBB when I saw this thread. This will get old v. .e. .r. .y fast. :mad:

I started to have the same problem this a.m. I'll check back daily to see if fixed; it's too annoying to deal with.


03-16-2006, 05:19 PM
I'm getting this stupid pop-up, too. Bugs the heck outta me!

03-16-2006, 05:59 PM
I got it also - my initial thought was I clicked something I wasn't supposed to. Glad I checked out this thread. Thanks for the info.

03-16-2006, 06:00 PM
Glad to know that it's not just me!

03-16-2006, 06:57 PM
Likewise, very irritating! Linda ~

03-16-2006, 08:46 PM
Me too. Good grief. :(

03-16-2006, 08:50 PM
happening to me too & driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!

03-17-2006, 06:24 AM
What an annoying way to start the day!!!


03-17-2006, 06:29 AM
Wow is that sign on thing getting freaking annoying

03-17-2006, 06:46 AM
I'm getting it too, just started yesterday. Did we all get a bug from CL? This is the only place it happens!

03-17-2006, 08:32 AM
I Googled: cp.timeinc.net staging area and found -

"Enter username and password for Staging Area at cp.timeinc.netEnter username and password for Staging Area at cp.timeinc.net:. username:. password:. This requires cookie support turned on in your browser. ...
www.efewe.com/cgi-bin/nph-giggle.cgi/ 010110A/http/cp.timeinc.net:8080/time/documents/privacy/ - 2k - Supplemental Result -"

When you click on it you get the error message "object not found".

Hmmm, does the "giggle" in there suggest anything? I'm not sure.

03-17-2006, 09:07 AM
I tried typing my CL password and it doesn't work, so this must be some kind of error. I hope they can fix it.

03-17-2006, 10:22 AM
It is very annoying and will be fixed shortly. Thanks all for letting me know.

03-17-2006, 10:24 AM
Thank you!! I'm not getting that screen anymore.

03-17-2006, 10:25 AM
Hooray!! Thanks Jennifer!! :D

03-17-2006, 11:21 AM
It's all gone now. Big Thanks for being so responsive.
