I also met cannot log into editor forum problem. Tips: "time out ". First I think probably my IP problem， then I used the SSH agent. Then can login, but the service was unstable, often still appear "request time out" phenomenon.
One of my background tools has just reported having a problem getting a response from the API. I believe that to initially log in to the forum your password needs to be verified by the API -- so any problems there may prevent you from doing so.
The forum is working fine for me at the moment -- but then I did the initial login in several hours ago.
