If you're having trouble logging in with Persona, it's likely to be one of the following things:
1) I've logged in but the page keeps refreshing
If you have a reserved username on Microcosm (for example, by being a member of an imported forum), then Microcosm will already have an email address on record for you.
Due to the way Persona handles email addresses, the email address you use with Persona must exactly match the one we have on record.
Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the email address you're using and we'll make sure they both match.
2) I've logged in, but when I reopen my browser I've been logged out
Your browser must have third-party cookies enabled, otherwise Persona will ask you to log in on every new browser session. Details on how to do this for your browser are below:
Safari on iOS 6/7
3) I can't log in at all
This may be down to an unsupported browser, or a security policy applied to your browser (e.g. by your employer) that prevents Persona working.
If third-party cookies are enabled, and you are still having issues, please visit these two pages:
...and email us the results at email@example.com and we'll try and help.
