This weekend (October 10th, 2009), I introduced accounts on DelphiFAQ.com
The main reason was to give people the ability to edit a comment that they have posted several hours or days ago. Without a login, it was not possible to reliably identify the 'owner' of the comment.
Second, it did happen that someone impersonated someone else by using that person's name. It is still possible to post anonymously, but if you post while logged in, a green check mark will appear next to your name above the comment.
Finally, it has happened several times that one poster tried to reach another poster but neither one of the 2 posters had left their email address. The 2 posters would independently email me and I would try to make the connection. Successfully, in a few cases, I may add. Now, if you are logged in, you can send a message to another registered user on this site.
You can see your own messages in your profile.
In the upper right corner you have links to log in or to register a new account:
Once you are logged in, you can access your profile by clicking on your name in the upper right corner:
I switched to firefox since I had this same sort of problems.
I have been logged out of delphi for 2 days now.
Before I could not logout of delphi, the pages buttons did not work and other problems.
I have not tried to log in delphi yet with firefox. (Enjoying freedom finally after days of not being able to log out.) I will try logging in soon.
I wonder if IE is the problem or delphi or both?

Well it seems that my problem is fixed now by making the change to firefox.

Does anyone know who this girl is and whether she is known to try and scam on the internet? I have received several photos of her along with several letters. Although she has not once asked for money or gifts she is talking about coming to the states and is supposedly in Moscow now finishing her preperations for the trip. The only thing she has asked for is the name af an airport in the vacinity to fly into. I have a ttached a photo of her to this and would appreciate any and all info you may know about her.

She (or he) is a scammer. Asking for your local airport code is a sure sign.

1)see her mail header
2)see the X-mailer
If you find X-mailer '' The Bat xxxxxx '', she can be a Russian scammer.
3)Look up her sender IP address
4)when she asks you about your local airport name,it is a Russian scam sign.
I know your girl will ask for your money for passport,visa,,,,,,.
Be careful !

Well it seems as though 'Olga Fedotowa' has come full circle. She is definately a scammer and has finally hit mw with the money end of the scam. She needs $800.00 to get her tickets to the states to get her job and meet me in person with the promise to repay me within a couple of months of getting here. She has sent her travel itinery as well as a photo of her passport. I have attached the photo to this post. If anyone else out there has heard from Olga Fedotowa, or from 'firstname.lastname@example.org' watch yourself she is good....

well...this was Saturday and starting Tuesday she said she wanted to marry me and jesus is all that matters and she will love me and take care of me. Long story short she was completely lying. Thanks to your site I was able to identify that she was sending me pictures of Melissa Midwest the porn star. Thank you for saving me a visa, plane ticket, and a fake marriage license to who knows who would have shown up if anyone.
Welcome aboard. I'm relatively new myself and have found that delphi is a very welcoming place as long as you respect the rules.
Try to post scammer info on other threads and use this one for account, login, and other technical issues.
Well I had contact to a scammer from Ghana. She introduced herself as Joyce Appiah,
14th High Street, Accra - Ghana 00233. After contacting me in parship.at where she first pretended to live in Austria, she wrote me using the following email account:
Maybe somebody had contact with her too, hopefully nobody sent her money, she uses to ask for. i.e. to pay her internet fees, for booking a flight ticket to Austria to marry me (!)
I would be interested to find out her IP-adress, maybe we can locate her (perhaps she isn´t real at all, it´s a gang)
Tired of IE6 acting wonky and sites telling me I was no longer supported, so abused dog loyal to my master that I am, 'upgraded' to IE7. Like trading up from a Pinto to a Lada. Won't kill you, but doesn't get you there any faster.
Like all MS products, much time spent on tech forums finding tweaks and fixes. Like putting mags on a Lada.
Think I'm ready to bite this master and follow you all to Firefox. Anybody have problems there yet? Everybody happy there?
I have recently switched to firefox I always used IE before so it took some getting used to for me but, I really like it now. It has some nice features IE does not have and safer also. I have not had any of the previous problems with delphi log in since switching to firefox.
Thanls DOC. I think I'm just about ready.
IE7 really sucks - almost no customization, much slower than IE6, takes up a huge amount of memory (my pagefile has increased 3 times since I've been using it - this computer NEVER did that before), and it's even wonkier than IE6, which I actually miss (what can I say, my father had a Pinto.)
