If you make that account and can get in with it you can correctly add the dot to the cookie and then change any character in the cookie name so it gives you a brand new cookie with the new settings and see if you can then log back in with the original account.

Ah, right, so creating that account is for when you've logged out of your original one then. Well I'm still logged in to mine so I'll just create a new cookie with that and see how it goes.

It's just an emergency entry account that allows people to get in to a board when they can't do it with their existing one.

Thanks for unlocking it.

IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN LOCKED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!

Thanks, KevC, for clarifying that I needed to change the cookie name. Doing that did the trick. No longer having any problems with logging in and out now.
