so far I'm not seeing issues in regards of replying to posts or links to posts, etc.
I was able to access forums.autodesk.com this morning without receiving any error msg and was still signed in. However the 2nd attempt to come here less than an hour later resulted in the invalid or expired ssl cert msg.
The 3rd attempt to access the forums worked as expected and I'm still signed in and did not receive the cert msg.
Just to put this out there, but if the forums were still accessible through a newsgroup reader, this wouldn't be a problem.
yeah, but how will they complete the "2 steps back" routine then?
1 step forward (new web-only access to forums)... 2 steps back...
I've gotten a variety of error messages today. I've been away from these forums for quite some time due to the dreadful interface and sluggishness when they went to web-based only. I come back to post a topic, hoping to find things in better shape, only to be greeted by a different set of issues. [Roll eyes]

After deploying a fix overnight, we continue to see additional errors that are intermittently preventing login to the forums (certificate errors, service unavailable messages, etc.). We’re continuing to troubleshoot this separate, but likely related issue and will continue to keep you informed through this thread.
FYI, I did not receive this error when logging in today. Thanks.
I'm happy to say that we believe the login issues have been resolved. What we discovered today is that there were multiple, unrelated issues with forums sign in (the original 404 issue and a separate issue with all the server and certificate errors that also affected sign in to other systems, including subscription. Both should now be resolved. Please let me know if you see otherwise as the new issue appeared to be intermittent (adding to the confusion and frustration).
The issue definitely is NOT fixed. I've found every time I want to post something, I can't login. The only way to login it to get my password reset each time. Doesn't matter if I restart my computer, browser or clear out my cache, seems the login is only valid for that session. Kinda amazing that an issue as basic as loginning in to a forum is taking so long to resolve.
Try deleting all your temp files and cookies from IE. That did the trick for me.
