RFD Kicked me out for 10mins. Miraculously it accepted my pwd and let me log back in - after three tries. Boy.,I really need to distance myself from RFD again. I get so reliant on updates throughout the hour.

I got kicked out again within the past 30 mins. Funny enough this time my password actually worked.

The only way I can log in is with an insecure connection (ie: the lock has a red line through it). If I do https:// it never connects. Also appears My Subscripts also doesn't work (just hangs).

Finally back on RFD. I was --//LOCKED OUT//-- of my account since April 9/2017 till now April 13/2017 @ 22:21 EDT.

I wasn't sure WTF happened. At first the RFD site kept saying something about my password not being accepted and I needed to change my password then something about a 'Yellowpage ID' not right which had me all "??!? A what?" as I've never had that or signed up for that before.

So I check the site forums for RFD site discussions then read something about a 'cloudbleed' thing which had me worried as my account was compromised. I did hit the 'forget password' link but NEVER got an email to my email account which had me worried. I was almost at htew point of making another account just to message the MODS and others as I had messages to pick up stuff and no way to communicate with the other person.

A few days go by as life got in the way with family and such and a few minutes ago I decided to check RFD again and use my account and suddenly it worked. No need to enter the password again so I was like 'Hmmm it magically worked and remembered my password?". Well I did have the website and login/password saved.

I hope the RFD site and thier accounts are fixed/stabilized now. I'd hate to be locked out of my account again.


PS: Thank you to all the MODS for thier hard work on trying to resolve the issue. :D

Is Canadian Tire's site on the same Telus database system? Seems like when I can't log in here I can't log into Canadian Tire's site either.

The latest from Telus is that the problem should be resolved. I haven't seen the log in system go down since the weekend so that's a good sign at least. If it happens again we will immediately post an announcement. The changes to the log in page and the error message updates are still forthcoming and hopefully will be in before too long.
Well, it happened again during the night and early this morning. Was just able to get back in at 6:30am EST.

How about using Twitter to make quick announcements when it happens?

I was just logged out from RFD on all devices (mobile and desktop). I was able to log back in without issues using same credentials.

Edit: Cannot connect to login service again. Smh

Here we go again, RFD did not improve its response from last time, same unnecessary password resetting message, no acknowledgement that forums were down, no ETA, no communication at all :facepalm:

For all we know this uptime will last 2 minutes like one of my previous replies

Year ago before they changed the site I warned "don't fix what isn't broken"....and its been broken ever since.

Can't wait for the inevitable "RFD database hacked again" message. Just like last time, we'll probably find out 2 years after the fact.

RFD Admins/Devs - Seriously, what's happening? Are you folks promoting changes during the day/weekends in an attempt to correct the issue? If yes, please stop. Schedule a window and then do whats necessary. Also - a little communication would help.

Thank you.

Up and down like a yo-yo today. This is getting to be a pretty common problem.

RFD still hasn't implemented a notification banner to tell people when the site is having problems.

For that matter RFD still hasn't changed the misleading login failure message that tells people they should reset their password when in fact that has nothing to do with the problem.
