    Default Weird Access Issue? (Not 5 post limit)

    So I was on the Home page, and there's a stream of "random" member's maps, and usually I can click on the image and view it.

    However, I clicked on one this time, it said I did not have access to view the page, and asked if I was trying to edit someone's post!


    So I don't know if it's a bug/issue with a link, or if it's showing images publicly that are private, or if it was just a glitch, or if it's perfectly normal and I'm just an idiot. (It's likely). But I thought someone should know in case it was an issue? D:

    I decided to try this out. From viewing this thread (while most definitely logged in) I clicked on the "Home" link at the top. I scrolled down and can see the random gallery map thumbnails. I clicked on one, and it showed me the page without yelling at me. I could see the image just fine. However, the vBulletin message "Welcome! The Cartographer's Guild is a forum..." was there, and checking the top of the screen showed me that I was now logged out (???). I clicked through "Forum"->"Site Tech Support"->this thread. Still logged out, and I can't post this report. I logged in again and am now able to post this.

    This does happen to me quite a lot on this forum. I click on something that will bring me to some other part of the site, and it logs me out. If I hit the Back button I am logged in again with full permissions, but going forward never restores that status until I manually log in.

    Is this perhaps a cookie issue? (I normally block all cookies, so next time I'll try whitelisting this site.)

    Thanks for the replies, but no, I was logged in. It even said my username:

    Yes. Thanks for the screenshot. That's exactly what happens to me too.

    I just gave it a try, and I got the same message on one image, but not on the others. I suspect that it is, indeed, throwing up some thumbnails from galleries that are set to private.

    You need the 5 posts to see this stuff, but it might also be that you need to wait for the hour change to update your profile. Try again in an hour and see if that helps.

    Cartographers live in worlds that no one has ever seen or ever will. Worlds of winding rivers and of foaming oceans mapped only by a faint compass rose. Worlds of little villages near the ruins of great castles, connected by faint grey roads. Worlds of fantastic creatures lairing in dungeons and caverns waiting only to be slaughtered for their treasure. Others may marvel at our maps, but these are worlds that only we can ever truly visit, because we create them.
