  • I tried for 3 hours to get past Step 1 in that claim process. It's always the same: "invalid password or not under claim process". I tried various password lenght (10 - 20chars), alphanumerical, bolt, letter, Symbols again and again....no success. I was logged in until the lockdown that day so my account couldn't be hacked

  • I've been trying for over an hour just to load the page at claim.mtgox.com. Is it just me? Is someone DDOSing it?

  • @keefe, yeah... the 10s of thousands of users trying to get their accounts back.  (maybe not all 60k users... but probably a bunch.)

  • Anyone who really thinks MtGox or even Bitcoin will recover from this is stupid.

     

    Going to be a lot of cheap ATI Radeon 5XXX and 6XXX GPU's on Ebay pretty soon!

  • so BitchCoin Express.. you gonna put your cards up for sale?  I'll buy them... or are you just trying to spook people out of the BTC market so you can make some fast bitcoin cheap?

  • Is there an updated status ? Most people i talked to cannot even get a response from the claim website.

    I understand that everyone is trying to access the page, but a 60k user base isnt that big, are there other problems ? DDOS ?

    An updated status would save us the hassles of 'keeping on trying'

    Thanks

  • What the fuck?  Even the claims page doesn't load.  This company is a piece of shit.

Bill
  • 60k users should not be crashing a site.  Unless you have a shitty host.  Let alone a few thousand that are actually trying right now.  Fuck MTGOX.

  • Mt Gox appears to be hosted through http://www.prolexic.com/

     

    You would get the impression from their site that they are not "a shitty host"

  • Impressions are one thing.  Working examples are another.  And yep, still down.

  • I got it all happening with zero errors just waiting on the ID side.

    If you cant afford to loose in this game you shouldnt play. Its early days for something thats brand spanking new to this world of course there will be hickups and the big bankers cant have competition from bitcoin and I reckon thats why the mechanics of this hack is so strange the international banksters will try hard to stop this from maturing. So you whiners get out of bitcoin you dont have what it takes just yet, come back when its all nice and rosey for you.

  • Ya mine says that as well.  I think one post would have done.  Keep in mind guys this isn't a stock market or national bank running this, it's just a small operation that I'm sure had no idea how fast it would grow.  Yes, they should have been prepared for this, but it seems to me they are trying, lets give them a minute to get their shit together alright.  If you need your money right this minute, you probably should not have invested it in anything.  It isn't the end of the world or the end of bitcoin, it's just what happens when something grows faster than it is ready for.

  • Yet no time frame given after submitting..  I love these guys.  They DON'T SAY ANYTHING.  Nice PR/Damage control.

  • Ok MOUNT COCKS, I've submitted your account recovery form. HOW FUCKING LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT NOW?

     

    Seriously you guys are pissing everyone off by the second. Just let us get to our fucking money.

  • @Eric Olson they're working on booking plane tickets to Brazil. These guys have had MORE than enough time to "work" on security. I have no trust in MOUNT COCKS.

  • @ BitchCoin Express - once again your stupid posts are dim-witted and you need to be relevant. Please stop typing garbage into the box and shut off your computer. You are contributing nothing.

  • You can ignore lasagna's rant.

     

    The people at mt.gox are good people, if all our coins and currency are preserved within our accounts not only should all current members stick with mt.gox but we should encourage membership because they really handled this situation well despite what members might think they know contrary.

  • Looks like there is FINALLY an option for those who got the "The password for this account is invalid, or this account is not currently under claim process." error.  Just did it and seems to work fine.  Submitted OK.

  • @John,

    This isn't about being able to "afford" to play the game.  This is about having my assets locked up by a company without hardly a mouse fart about what has happened and/or is happening.  Their story is suspect considering the database leak and users complaining of their coins missing only days prior to the attack.  They've even belittled and maybe even libeled their own customers in public forums?  I don't know, I'm not a lawyer.  It's unprofessional at the least or total incompetence at the worst.  There is about something that is seriously wrong with the company.  I want no part in it.

     

    I want out of here as soon as possible.  And I'm still waiting.  Hear the crickets?

  • If my cash ends up there, I will give MT Gox another chance.....  If not, I will GTFO.

    The sun still rises and sets - go for a walk or something.

  • If you're having trouble with the "The password for this account is invalid, or this account is not currently under claim process," make sure you're entering your login username where it says "Login", not your email.

    If you are using all the correct information.. good luck, I hope it gets figured out.

  • @ Sean how are the people of Mt. Gox good people? They're rich 30 somethings who have us by the balls. Wake the fuck up. And honestly, please don't try to promote membership here...we're all out as soon as this trainwreck has come to a complete stop.

  • Learn to read people:  or this account is not currently under claim process.

    You don't have to do anything because your account is safe.

    I didn't got this message, and probably because I buyed coins that day so my account needs to be rolled back. Relax, you probably will be asked when MtGox is back online to change your pass and that's it

Jun-22 2011 09:31.

  • @HoomP i don't need anything but a functioning website that doesn't get hacked, and that I can trust. MOUNTCOX has failed me.

  • @lasagna  you are the biggest child in the world.  12 year olds shouldnt be playing with money on the internet.  I hope once you are able to get your money you leave and never come back.  You are totally immature, and deserve to lose every penny you gambled.

Jun-22 2011 09:37.
Asuka
  • oh and for the record there are alot of people... on this very support board who are not pissed off at Mt.Gox... stop speaking for everyone.  Because not everyone is pissed at them.

  • IF YOU'RE GETTING THE MESSAGE "The password for this account is invalid, or this account is not currently under claim process":

    Reload the claim form. Don't enter your password, someone probably changed it. Click "Check here if you forgot it" instead. Then provide as much proof as you can.
