Yeah, the site is a bit short of around an inch on both sites.

Not used to it like that.

No problems logging it on the new forum. Hit the login at top of forum, logged in with my Avast Account information and Bingo! I'm logged in on the Forum. :)

I can't get signed back in under my Evangelist account (schmidthouse)

Very confusing when asked for user name and password (which is normal) BUT, when entered says "doesn't look like an email address"!! Didn't ask for an email address it asked for USERNAME.
In any case didn't recognize email address and ended up with some new account.
Any assistance would be appreciated. ;)

Well I'm not feelin the Love. :-\
Have tried everything suggested and cannot access anything having to do with my "schmidthouse" account.
Yes, used the email address associated with this account.... and got a new account with the first four letters of the email address I entered....What??.
Used old password, used reset password but cannot access my Evangelist account.

Well, it has given me a new forum name plus I am a newbie now. Strange....must be the e-mail log in that confused it.

Sip2, however frustrating yes. It is not (entirely) Avast's fault they got hacked. Could've been a newly released exploit someone found, and avast! didn't know about it yet or something. The captcha you are filling out is too prevent spam bots from coming and spamming the forums. You will most likely need to fill it out until (I think) 25 posts.

After being hacked you turn to Simple Machines For a Forum? This is amazing. If Avast cannot maintain a secure forum, why should I trust Avast with my PC? I guess you had to get a free forum my god. I cannot believe this.

The other being? Using something like Geekstogo does? Which would cost thousands a year. Assuming between Guests, Admins/Mods, Registered users. Let's say you have what 450 online at once?
