Good day. For the past two days I've been trying to access my Settings page, but once I input my email address and password, I am led to the error message page:

FanFiction.Net Error Type 2

An error has occurred while processing your request. Please email this error message to via . All errors are logged for administrative and security purposes.

I'm sure I get logged in because when I access my profile, I can see my username on the upper right screen like usual. But, once I click on my username to see the user menu/Settings page, I get the above error message again.

I've already Googled "Error Type 2" and found out about the March 18-30, 2011 problem, but this problem and that problem are quite different. Last time, you just couldn't access the stories properly in the Settings page. But for my problem, I cannot access the Settings page itself. At all. Let me just say that I tried the fixes in this post, but I get a message that Firefox/Chrome can't find

I've checked for updated Java and Flash, and mine are up to date. I've cleared my Cache/Cookies, as well. But there's still no change, and I keep getting the error message. Does anyone know why this is? Or if there's a solution? I wonder if I'm the only one with this problem. :(

I'm partially guessing this is really just a server problem that's taking longer than usual (it's been more than 2 days by now). But if no one else experiences this, then I'm quite scared that my account might have a bug or something. DD:

Thank you in advance for any help!

Others have reported this problem so you're not alone.

Try a direct link as a workaround. You'll have to copy and paste into your address bar the first time - then you can bookmark (favorite) them.

Thank you for the reply!

And I just checked. Seems the menu's back. :)
