About this board

AnthonyPvanDuyn (talkcontribs)

I read and followed the section on help with logging in but still couldn't make any edits at Conservapedia. I would sucessfully log in and then it would seem like I was logged out again.


Regardless, this section really needs the simple suggestion of ticking the 'Stay Logged In' option because many of us interpret this as a security risk to ourselves and don't tick it! It also primarily seems as a non-required thing when it seems that it actually is in at least some cases.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Conservapedia is an external, third-party wiki. It runs the same software (MediaWiki), albeit a somewhat outdated version.

If you get logged out of Conservapedia automatically if you don't tick "Stay Logged In", their server possibly has faulty configuration. You can report the problem on their site. But Wikimedia wikis don't appear to have this technical issue.

In a Wikipedia article, it is shown to me that I am not logged in. And when I try to login, I receive this message:


"There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Please resubmit the form. You may receive this message if you are blocking cookies."


I am not blocking cookies. I just do not use javascript enabled in this browser settings profile, but I have tried to enable it, and the problem persists. What is wrong??

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

Where is the edit button? I cannot see it.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

This is a structured discussion, which works differently than classic wiki pages and talk pages Wikipedia uses.

There is no "Edit" button for the whole page, just for individual posts.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

{ { strike | So, there is no edition for each message we send here? } }

How should I code for a strike? This: 👆🏾, without extra spaces, worked just as a link to the "Strike" article in Wikipedia. 🤷🏾‍♀️


I just found it. It was invisible. I can hover a menu, but there is no indication there is something there.

I tried to add it for you, but had trouble with the editor.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

test from your source

let's see...

Should something be done about it?

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

You might find a place to ask about this in Help:Contents. I personally don't mind using the HTML strike tags.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Yes, you can edit your messages.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

Why my time signature with "Rapidim (talk) 18:24, 19 June 2021 (UTC)" did not work above?

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

One does not have to sign messages on structured discussions, as user name and date are added automatically, as with comments on social media sites.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Maybe cross-domain cookies are deactivated in your browser, which are necessary for automatic login.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

They are activated. But I use Wikipedia just in private windows.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Possibly you have to activate it separately for private browsing.

If there is a feature named "tracking protection", "prevent tracking", or similar, that would need to be deactivated for this to work.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

Wikipedia should not even need to use things that easy privacy attacks. I will not change it, and I will change this profile to not accept third part cookies (it was enabled just because I missed it). I will just stop editing wikipedia, then, if it does not change to what it used to be - or change to something that is compatible to this past.

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Third-party cookies have both legitimate uses and undesirable side effects, which depends on site.

You can still log in without third-party cookies, but you would need to log in individually rather than just once. It just is a little less convenient.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

I do not mind logging in for each wiki project. But I am still unable to log in Wikipedia: "There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Please resubmit the form. You may receive this message if you are blocking cookies." (I just retried, since I changed several wiki settings yesterday).

Bricomsci (talkcontribs)

Consider enabling third-party cookies temporarily until a successful login.

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

I only want to use wikipedia in private windows. Having to change settings 2 times everytime is very bad.

If you first log into Wikipedia before this site after clearing cookies, does it work then?

Rapidim (talkcontribs)

No. I just tried. Same error. After the error, I visited the link received by email, about your question. It asked my login (it could not guess, of course), and password.

Precisely, Jesmion couldn't login, and couldn't register Jesmion ever since blocked in 2013!

HI i have the same problem i couldn't log in


89.92.136.173 (talkcontribs)

I got an error message saying I couldn't create an account, then I tried again, and it changed my saved password, but it turned out that it had created an account on the first try, so I lost the password. Now it won't email me a reset.

Why cannot i log in?

Maybe your administrator blocked it? I seem to be having the same problem and it only says that its blocked by administrator so maybe ask the administrator to unblock

Can't create Star Trek Timelines Account

Summary last edited by Pacingpal 22:23, 12 July 2020 1 year ago

Issue resolved.

Pacingpal (talkcontribs)

Every time I try to create an account for Star Trek Timelines, I get this error message:

[4194ff84ffaedca3d0931df8] 2019-08-24 15:24:44: Fatal exception of type "Error"


What is going on?

Majavah (talkcontribs)

We have no idea what "Star Trek Timelines" is. This site contains technical documentation for the MediaWiki wiki software. You have to ask administrators of that website.

Pacingpal (talkcontribs)

I asked another wiki because I was unable to contact the admins, but never mind. The issue was resolved.

My apologies.

Hi everyone,

At Help:Logging in#Log in problems (T:19), I see 'Regardless of the reason for the logout, the simplest solution to the problem is to check the "Keep me logged in (for up to $1 days)" box.' Yes, instead of 365 it's $1.

The source says "Regardless of the reason for the logout, the simplest solution to the problem is to check the "<tvar|rememberme>Keep me logged in (for up to $1 days)</>" box." I'm not familiar with this kind of mark-up, any ideas?

Kind regards,

Whatever I do, I cannot login, with error message "There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Please resubmit the form." By now:
The wiki is https://meta.wikimedia.org/

  1. Used cookie clean page;
  2. Used restored temporary password & old with same result
  3. With either new or temporary password there's mentioned error.

Any ideas?

Me Too. Thus, I'm not logged in and it's only the IP.

2A00:23C7:301:1401:7577:D846:2873:A56B (talkcontribs)

I'm having the same problem. Cleared all cookies, changed IP address, rebooted, different browser, everything.

What does one do to get this sorted? the original issue was raised a month ago and no solution! I have to post this anonymously 'cos I can't log-in and I'm part way into loads and loads of image uploads to Commons ...

2A02:810D:2440:23CC:2DA1:ACDA:E8C8:B0DB (talkcontribs)

I'm going to suppose it is a temporary issue, as I can't login either with the same issue.

SADIQUI (talkcontribs)

I was experiencing the same problem but now I managed to log in;

  • you need to clean up all the data stored on your browser for that website (meta.wikimedia.org)
  • avoid to copy & past your password
  • you need to write all the password one time without leaving the window

I hope this can help

since i might have gotten hacked, i need a new account.

Ragityman (talkcontribs)

Go to your userpage. You should still be able to edit it, even if you can't log in. Type out a description of your problem, and then append {help me}. This should attract attention from an administrator who can help.

The problem with leaving a message here is that it might be awhile before anyone sees it. I only saw it by chance, and I am not an admin. Sorry. Good luck. ~~~~

Ragityman (talkcontribs)

I told you wrong. Only slightly wrong, but it wouldn't work. Type "helpme" as one word, no quotation marks, and enclose in '''double''' braces, {{ }}. You need to do this on YOUR userpage. Also, I would have left this message on your userpage, but you didn't sign your message. I don't know who you are. If you have an account, always sign your posts, and people can more easily help you. I won't leave messages on an IP userpage: they are less than useless, a waste of time. No one except me ever sees them.
