Last night I followed the instructions and connected to Q-LinK Reloaded and made an account. But, at some point the connection got stuck and then Q-Link told me my connection had been interrupted and disconnected me.
Since then, when I try to logon it tells me that my user id is already logged in and to disconnect. Is it possible to fix this?

getting withdrawal symptoms
If you don't mind my asking, withdrawl for what exactly? I don't log into Q-Link very often because, near as I can tell, the only thing you can do is connect to the IRC which is better done with a proper IRC client. I think Q-Link could grow into a useful resource but for now it seems more like a neat hack.

It will take some time as Q-Link is volunteer driven but I think it will eventually develop into a hub for the Commodore community. Even if it doesn't, it stands as one of the greatest Commodore-related hacks of all time. I'm still amazed by the skill, determination and audacity that it took to create Quantum Link Reloaded.

Well Q-link has been having problems for the last 2 days in People Connection, at least if I went there it froze and eventually told me "your phone connection has been broken" or something to that effect then offering the F5 to return to basic. However last night it was working again, I don't know if there was a reboot on the server or a fix (I assume a reboot). But I still could get in the door, just had the Problem in People Connection.
With regard to a "you are already logged in" error, what you do is log in with another screen name (using the same Q-link disk) then switch to the name that is giving you the error using Customer Serivce/account maintance. That will fix the problem. Apparently sometimes the server won't time out a name like it should. Hopefully it will get fixed in the near future.
I also tend to think that Q-link will grow. Especially once the libaries and other areas are active. I am personally looking forward to the additonal games/areas as well such as: Rabit Jacks, Club Carbie, etc.
I never got on the original Q-link due to the fact that it was long distance and therefore too expensive at the time (plus time in additon to my long distance charges would have been too high). I could have got on in the last year, but by then it had deterorated a lot. I had a local friend who was on and after talking with them I decided against it and stuck with GEnie instead. But I always wished I could have got on in the early days when Q was THE place to be if you had a Commodore. :/ BUT I see this as a second chance at that and I am thrilled.

I have not got on to Q-Link reloaded for a wile because it works bad now. The people connection just has red, wight, and blue with no text then disconnected.
I just tested getting on in the morning today Tue. Jan. 3 my time, about 7am. It just keeps saying "Connecting - -no carrier" I guess it's a bad error that stopped it of Jim is fixing it so took it down for now.
I changed my routers subnet and found out my Linux box that runs tcpserer on it. I went to webmin and changed were it gets it's address's to IP names on the net from my router and now I can get on Q-Link reloaded and it's been working good. But when I go in People connection no one is there. I will have to try other times.
I have been on a few times and have had several good chats. Yes sometimes I have been in and no one is there, but if I wait a few minutes usually someone will drop by after a few minutes. So I hope this is a good sign.
I see a huge potential for Q to be revived, being tho that this whole thing is being reverse engineered, by a few folks on their spare thing means that it'll take awhile. Tho even in the old days Q was prone to problems and there were many day where you tried to log on and got a "Qlink is down for system maintenence" message. Overall it ran well, and had it's good and bad days like everything else does.
Tho I hav e no yet had the chance to see Q-reloaded I will sit here and keep checking from tim to time for a system status message. And Q wont grow over night most users will be comming in from windows using vice, but that'll probaby need a vice-Q package to be put together to make it easier for the non techies out there to get in, it'll also need a lil advertising and nothing works better than word of mouth... but once there is a lil more than people connection such as the file,message, and the other areas that made "Q" the place to be in the 80's there wont be much there to hold an interest. and I think the new Q should have a commodore file area and a regular file area for users of other platforms after all there are honestly only so many working commodores left out there.
What made quantum a win back in the old days were it users... a very friendly, tight knit group of people and the dedication of the qguides, hosts, and everyone that had a day to day connection with the users, this needs to be implimented also to help steer things in the right direction. the qguides were very well versed and very helpfu with helping you with any trouble you had with you qlink experience back then, and most knew how to keep the lobby conversations going and for the most part fun... an active scheduel kept things interesting, trivia nights in the auditorium, there used to be screen nam auctions for old screen names once and awhile, guest speakers ... stuff like that, Q was for the most part well thought out as far as knowing how to keep your attention, and how to keep things lively, and still yet family oriented. alot of the guides, tends, and other were volunteers, you worked 3 hour shifts so many days a week and Q and i really dont remember if Q gave you plus time for it or not but i think they did. Overall my Q experience was wonderful, made alot of friends, met a few and almost always had a good time... and to be to do that especially when a majority of things were + time and to keep drawing them in day after day, Q had to be exceptionally good I feel I had got my moneys worth tho there were months where I would gasp when I saw my qbill sorry to be so long winded, but Q was a special part of my life and helped me get through a rough time in my life. I look forward to walking through whatever is up , when it goes back up.
