I am being told by RayneZ_Selbina and Horo_Wisewolf_Figaro (in FFXIV irc) that this is intended.

Apparently we are not allowed to provide feedback or read the dev forums. This was implemented in Beta 3.

Original Message
Upon trying to access the Beta Development site ( I found that I could log in but it would randomly log me into different user accounts and wouldn't allow me to access any Beta feedback or Discussion pages!

This issue was confirmed by UnknownSoldier as well.

Please help by testing to see if you experience the issue as well and then report it to Square-Enix by going to the following link:

Contact Category: Products & Services
Contact Sub-category: Beta Test

Form Letter:
The Development Website for FFXIV experiences the following issue.


Issue: after logging in the name in the upper right hand corner labeled "Welcome <name>" randomly changes every time the page changes. Further upon trying to access any feedback pages including the forums the user will encounter the error "This cannot be accessed with the current Square Enix account."

Beta Phase 3 testers and Open Beta testers are not allowed to access any of the boards on the site. There was a note about it in a lot of places. Also, as for the random name in the top right hand corner, all those people that log in to the Development Site are logging in through a global guest account. So you can change the name and settings all you want but they just get reset. Bout all I have. There's nothing wrong with the site at all.

This is how SE intended it, Zanna. Open Beta testers who were not part of the CB invites are not allowed to post in the Beta forums.

Good effort though!

Yeah it's been like that ever since I was in beta. Only some of the initial testers can report bugs & other issues. I enjoyed looking at some of the crazy usernames I ended up with though.

Yup if you got in CB3 or later you can't post at all on the official beta forums. It's too bad really, anyone else noticing all they typos in npc dialogues?
