sign in gives false error message grokit5 5/7/12 8:31 AM
When I sign in to my YouTube account, I must sometimes jump through the hoop of skipping the step of associating my cell phone number with the account. When I go through this irksome reminder, I usually get an error page full of brown computer monitors claiming that my log in failed. If I return to the sign in page and repeat the login, I will likely get this error page again. However, if I refresh the page and maybe use a bookmark to land on a channel page, I find that I am successfully logged in, and there are no further problems. It would be nothing short of despicable if coders have intentionally produced this glitch in order to scare users into associating cell numbers with channels.

This has been happening to a number of people, myself included. We've attempted to get staff attention on the matter, but so far there's been no comment. And I agree, if it's intentional, it's downright evil.

I hate that error page because I panicked the first time I got it. >_>

When I see that error message now, I go straight to youtube's homepage. Magically, it shows me as signed in. >_<

Happened to me a long time ago.

Since then, I just didn't log out. :D
But seriously, it sucks... just another bug.

Yeah happens to me too...but only when I have to plug in a password manually. Weird... but not as much of an outrage as the hideous Cosmic Panda downgrade.
