Hi,
When I follow the link to upload my 1 minute test, I login with the posted username and password but it just takes me to the homepage of LibriVox. The instruction don't mention where to go, so I was wondering if there is an error (me or the website) or am I missing a step?

Thank you,
oogiesragdoll

Ok, weird. If I don't open the link to a new tab, it works. That's a little inconvenient, not being able to look at the instructions and navigating back to links.

That is very weird. It should work, regardless of which tab it's in. So, you're saying that when you click directly on the link, it works, but if you, say, right click and try to open it in a new tab, it's taking you somewhere else?

Yes, when I right click and open a new tab, it takes me to the login page but the login sends me to the LibriVox homepage instead of the uploader. I was able to upload eventually but it seems like an odd bug or quirk.

What browser are you using?

If you just copy/paste the link into a new tab, does it work then?

I'm using Chrome, pasting it worked too, maybe I found one fluke

What link are you using? Are you going to the main workflow page here: https://librivox.org/workflow

Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug in the system: If you make any mistake logging in, it may happen that once you're getting it right, you will be redirected to the main homepage instead of to the uploader.

I have not found a consistent pattern to this mistake, but it does drive me nuts. :roll:

Sorry 'bout that.
Cheers,
Ava.

Yes, that is exactly what is happening, thought it was a bug or something
