NOTICE: We had to remove one of our plugins for bad behavior.  The plugin was used to prevent spamming and hacking of the site.  One of its symptoms was posting a message to legitimate users that they needed to turn cookies on before they could post comments on the site.  Amazing Stories does not track its members – that message was erroneous (there is no need to turn cookies on).  It will not be seen again.  However, one of our other problem-prevention plugins is now improperly blocking registered users from logging in because it relied on information from the ‘bad’ plugin.  If you are a registered user of the site and are blocked from logging in, please submit the White List request you will be offered at time of login.  Once you have been added to the white list, we do not anticipate any further issues regarding logins.
