I have attempted to subscribe to alert messages and other information from AAVSO, but always run into a problem. Whenever I go to the Account > Profile page I get an error "to many redirects". I have tried this on multiple browsers on my PC and mobile. 

Digging into this problem I found this

The Profile page still gives me an error: redirected you too many times.

Checking the data being sent it seems the profile app is performing a redirect loop. It may be doing this if it cannot find me in the database.

To be specific, The Profile link points to (which has a temporarily moved status; http status 302). 

 That redirects to /member/ (also temporarily moved) to (temporarily moved) which redirects back to /member/ and repeats until it times out with an error

Clearing the cache, cookies, restarting etc etc does not solve this problem. 

I see someone else reported this problem over a year ago (may be a different version). I have had this issue since May when I returned to AAVSO after many years (pre-web).

Will answer over email



I will email you about this issue as it will be much easier to solve one on one.
