Trouble Logging In?

YES, we are aware that the website is having major issues. Be assured that our Webmaster is working on it, but it may take a few more days to root out and repair the underlying problem. Please be patient.

In the meantime, other login fields work. While logged out, if you try to view any protected articles it’ll display a login form – that one works.

Alternatively, you can also login / logout directly here: http://filmtvsound.com/index.php/login

Don't be shocked if the screen welcomes a different log-in name than your own! It seems to be doing that, as well.

Students: You will not be expected to leave replies to the Forum postings, due to the temporary site problems.
