Again! Problem not solved!
I was just about to cancel the process when finally after some minutes the login was successful.
It looked to me as if support.ptc.com was the problem and not lithium, but I may be wrong about that.
In case anybody cares - just now it took me 3 minutes and 20 seconds for being back to the community page after entering my login data at support.ptc
Problem not solved :-(
To echo others comments, it took over 2 minutes this morning from submitting my credentials to seeing the page I was headed to (private messages).
There was some sort of maintenance done over the weekend. Did that get done correctly?
Yes, we were included in the "shutdown" while the eSupport team had some backend changes. As far as I know, that maintenance activity went as expected. I have an open ticket with Lithium regarding my announcement area on the community. This is why I haven't removed the message yet. Thank you for checking in!
Funny thing is I never saw the message (other than the posting through PTC Community Announcements) until I just went to flag a MathCAD question posted in the wrong area. I seldom if ever go to the PTC Community home page so I never saw the "flag" / announcement.
Subcribe to the announcements board https://community.ptc.com/t5/PTC-Community-Announcements/bd-p/community_announcements
Its the only way I know since I pretty much only interact via email.
