Neopets Authenication Required?

Post by Nogitsune » 16 Sep 2015 11:22 pm

When I go to Neopets, I keep getting a pop-up that reads:

Authentication Required
A username and password are being requested by http://images50.neopets.com. The site says: "LDAP: images dev (Azure)"

Followed by two fields for the username and password. The images for the banner and such aren't showing. It closes easily enough, but will pop up again every time I go to a different page or even refresh the same one!

You know, I recall that problem floating around many, many years ago. With the images50 and everything. Is it still happening to you or have they fixed it? I'm not seeing any problems.

It's still happening as of right now.

Ooh, yes, this did used to happen a lot years ago... if I remember right it was something to do with one of Neo's image servers being glitchy or incorrectly configured and it went away after a while, presumably they got to the bottom of the problem.
