I'm so glad you figured out a workaround @rubyrose5757 ! Sometimes that even happens to me. I find I can usually then login by going down to the menu list (starts with Home) and then log in and that works. Different browsers act differently as well. Happy you figured it out!  :-*

*tap* *tap* *tap* .....is this thing on? Itís been years since Iíve picked up my pen and I did it yesterday! Muscle memory still good but how on earth did my writing get so shaky? I feel like I canít remember a thing....do I rinse off my nib in water when Iím done for the day? Does ink have a shelf life? Are dinky dots still a thing? Halp, Erica!!!  ;D

@ewigginton
Wow, Hi Ellen. What's it been--five years? A few of us still here from that time. Good to see you back.
If your ink hasn't molded or dried up completely, you might be able to use it by adding enough water to get it back to the proper viscosity, but why not treat yourself to a new bottle? And yes, rinse off the nib and wipe the ink off so it doesn't dry on the nib (I use a paper towel with a little Windex on it). Dinky dots? The parent/toddler groups or the dotted paper/fabrics?
I am curious what prompted you to pick up the pen after so much time. Still need more practice writing Chris Yoke's name?
I'm sure Erica will chime in when she sees your post. Again, welcome back.
Mike

Welcome back Ellen! @ewigginton So great to see you here! It just takes a while to get your steady hand back. But it will come. Mike gave you some great answers. I still use dinky dips. But there are these cute little glass bottles I get from Hobby Lobby which work perfectly and are a little bit bigger but not too big.

Happy to see you post again!  :-*

Iíve retired and have all the time now to play! Aw, thanks so much for remembering me! I canít believe how much stuff is out there compared to back in the day. Glad to you see you all still here. Some among have really gone on to wonderful things! I follow some on IG and theyíre amazing! Iíve been dabbling in watercolors and lettering and that dip pen was just staring me in the face! Happy to be back!

Welcome back Ellen! @ewigginton  But there are these cute little glass bottles I get from Hobby Lobby which work perfectly and are a little bit bigger but not too big.

I would like to see them (love all things cute).  Wonder if I visited site and did search "little glass bottles" would it yield them?  ::)

Itís a shame that such precautions have to be taken but they are indeed sensible. I work in technology professionally so see the bad stuff from the corporate side as well. Well done Erica for the fairly epic amount of effort it must take to keep the ink flowing smoothly (well, well-oiled machines and cogs didnít seem that appropriate a metaphor).
