When I hit login after I put the correct info it just sends me to a black page with a tiny blue text that says click here and I do and then it just sends me back to the login page. I have tried to login about 5 times now and the same thing has happened every time. What is happening?

When buying items in a player shop, they display as wearable if your /modified/ STR is high enough, but once bought, cannot be worn if your /base/ STR is not high enough.

Yup that seems hardly fair. I'll see about rectifying that. The indicator should be based on base strength.
