    Angry Linkshare password reset problems????
    Is anybody having any issues with Linkshare password reset?

    I was forced to reset my password y'day and now, I cannot have access to the account.

    Got my Director to reset my account but LS prompted him to change the password. He did that and now, he cannot log back in too.

    I hope that somebody at Linkshare will call me to get this resolved. Called like 4 times and I got transfered around. AM told me that his hands are tied.

    To all my affiliates, sorry if you emailed me anything via the interface. please do call me if there is a problem.

    We all had problems with Linkshare password reset at one time or an other. Just be patient, it takes several hours. That's one of the most stupid thing I've seen on the web.
    But, what else can we expect from LinkShare? Support, good luck.

    Also watchout, one step of the password reset lets you make bigger passwords than it will allow, so it just cuts off the end and gives you no warning. The whole password reset stuff is beyond stupid.

    No access to LS for 24+hrs. Well, this is crazy. I reset my passwd on Monday. I cannot login till today.
    "What support" Zeus, I will drink to that..

    I noticed that too. But for my director's passwd reset, he did not increase the # of characters for the password and it locked him out too after resetting it.
    Not getting reports is one thing. Not approving affiliates since Thanksgiving holiday is messed up. New affiliates must be thinking that we are sleeping on the job...

    I am sure that somebody up at linkshare will hear my grief.

    Back in y'day.
    Got a call from a director in Chicago apologizing for the problem. I am impressed that somebody up took note of my issue. Linkshare still needs to address the issue of the password issue and I think everybody will agree with me...
