Hi all, the devs are aware of the fact that there's a problem, no need to keep posting about the same issue :blobthumbsup:
Mia edit: I've found the bug and am working to fix it. Patience, thanks!

This is my first time posting here so I hope this is formatted correctly.
  1. Operating system: Windows OS
  2. Web Browser: Google Chrome
  3. Have you tried other browsers?: I've tried Firefox and the problem is evident there as well.
  4. When did this problem start?: Since I started using Pokemon Showdown.
  5. Your PS username: FameScheisse
  6. And of, course, your problem (include any error messages verbatim. give frequency, etc.): My login for here (Scheisse) does not seem to work for PS. It says the username is already registered. When I enter the (verified) correct forum-side password, it continually says Wrong Password, rendering my forum name useless. I don't know and was not told if this is intentional and PS is meant to have a different username than the forum or not.

This is intentional. PS and Smogon accounts are separate and have no relation. Owning one PS account does not correlate to owning that Smogon account, or vice versa.

Thank you for letting me know. In that case, I assume registration on PS and there alone means that the password system will work.

Also, would it be possible to switch someone's PS and forum usernames to each other?

As I understand this, partly. You'd need to be a badgeholder if the name is already claimed on PS or Smogon though.

every time I try to EV something it always just instamaxes all of them without showing it on the text boxes leading to this weird effect and I have to do some meandering to set them back to normal

Not sure if this belongs here, but it's something I should be able to do that I'm not able to do.

  6. On the date that I specified, the character \u3164 was banned from usernames. I used this character before it got banned that day and somehow, it got into my login name (see /user dot Comfey) and whenever I disconnect from the server, I get an error saying that my username contains a banned word. Typing in my username with the regular space allows me to connect to the server again. It would be helpful if I could easily reconnect to the server after disconnecting due to something like bad internet without having to always enter my username. So, is it possible for me to somehow remove that character from my login name, or can some technical admin fix that?
mia edit: log in and use /trn [new name] to remove the char.

Showdown chat does not seem to work on chrome. I was on showdown one day and a slider popped up beside chat, and I thought it was for something in showdown and used it. Now when I am on chrome, i cannot chat, but i can on Microsoft edge. I do not know if this is an error with my chrome element and showdown or with chrome in general and showdown. I reset my elements to make sure everything was normal but it did not work.

1) Windows 10
2) Firefox 92.0.1 64-bit
3) Problem does not occur in Edge
4) Unknown, but past few weeks generally
5) MalachiteOW
6) Connecting to other servers (namely sports.psim.us) only results in the "Couldn't connect to server!" box. Retrying does not fix, Retrying with HTTP does not work - the browser does not switch to HTTP. Can still connect to teambuilder and use it fully. Have tried refreshing firefox, reinstalling, disabling extensions and add-ons, and website data; none of which have worked. Regular showdown server works perfectly.
 
  1. iOS 9.3.5 (13G36) on a MD328C/A (apparently third-generation) iPad
  2. Safari, apparently also version 9.3.5
  3. Problem does not occur on my Android smartphone or my Windows 8 laptop. Problem does not occur on TrashChannel and/or showdown-afd.psim.us. A more severe version of the problem occurs on my iPod Touch, which I believe is even older than my iPad.
  4. I only found I had the problem this morning when using my iPad to access Pokemon Showdown online. My iPad version of Showdown was working last night.
  5. Lectrys
  6. On loading the HTTPS version of Showdown on my iPad, I get no "Initializing" messages at first, and I get "Couldn't connect to server!" On loading the HTTP version of Showdown with "Retry with HTTP", I can get "Initializing" messages again, and I get what appears to be a normal screen except the "Loading..." never disappears from the login button. Attempts to log in from there (e.g. by attempting to Random Battle) lead to the username dialog disappearing after I "Choose name", as if logging in is unresponsive. I can still access other Showdown rooms from there, though, and they are kept on subsequent HTTP refreshes.
    Private Browsing Mode on Safari gives the same results as above. Neither restarting my iPad nor Safari have helped. Logging in through TrashChannel has not helped. Deleting my pokemonshowdown.com data in my Safari settings has not helped. My teambuilder was OK at first after deleting my pokemonshowdown.com data, but a few minutes later while switching between HTTPS and HTTP, both my HTTPS room tabs and my teambuilder contents disappeared, and going to TrashChannel did not restore my teambuilder (unlike with my smartphone).

I am having the same exact problem on mac. I think the certificate to their website has expired, as that could be the main problem. This happened a couple days ago as well. User:CommandoRed

Yeah, in retrospect, I think this is a certificate problem as well for regular Pokemon Showdown. I cannot access Pokepaste (and Music Stack Exchange) on my iPad either due to more obvious certificate problems (the error message I get for both websites replaces the web page and is "Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server"). Switching the date and time on my iPad back and forth did not fix that problem.

I'm also having this problem currently but only with SmogTours on Firefox(93.0). [Windows 10] Main works on Firefox, and SmogTours works on Edge, so I'm not sure it's a security certificate problem. I only took notice today because I'm tourney prepping after not playing for a long while.

Known issue with a firefox update, were looking into it.

The cert is not expired, we just renewed it recently. What browser are you using?
 
1. Mac OS X El Capitan
2. Google Chrome
3. Tried Safari; same issue arises
4. Not sure. My first time logging in for a while on my Mac. (perhaps 2-3 weeks) However, I have been using a Chromebook for several days without issues.
5. vtpham
6. When I go on the site, the message "Couldn't connect to server!" appears. Pressing retry will reiterate the message while pressing retry with HTTP will allow only limited functions on the site. Can't log in. You can view Ladder, Teambuilder, and rooms, but cannot interact with said rooms.
 
Another thing I find odd; I can't access pokepast.es, as it's not secure enough (won't even let me bypass), and I had to bypass "Not Secure" on Smogon Forums to even get in. (cert is deemed invalid for both websites)

certificate issue with Let's Encrypt
