I tried to log into my MtGox account today only to be told my username/password didn't match.
As I recently changed the password, I assumed I typed it wrong and would just do a reset. So I entered my email/username for a reset and was informed that my email address was not on any account.

I've filed a ticket and I'm waiting to hear a response back from MtGox now, as I had about 25 BTC in my account.

Likewise, when I told my friend about this, he had me log into his account to withdraw his bitcoins. When I attempted to withdraw them, to his wallet ID, I was given a new message I've never seen before.

Apparently, MtGox is now limiting the amount of BTC you can withdraw from your own account. I understand that due to recent posts about accounts having missing BTC, it's likely for security purposes, but if MtGox isn't letting me withdraw my own bitcoins, I see a major flaw in this system.

Apparently, MtGox is now limiting the amount of BTC you can withdraw from your own account.

The limits are:
Quote
MtGox imposes a $1,000 USD limit for withdrawals per 24 hours and a $10,000 USD limit for withdrawals per month. and Bitcoins withdrawn are counted toward this limit as well and the USD value is calculated at the market rate at the time of the attempted withdrawal.

I just tried to Login and got this message:

 Too many failure from your IP, temporarly blocked.

I hardly ever go onto mtgox and I've always entered the right password. Anyone got any ideas what this nonsense means?

I'm grumpy!!

Are you using a TOR node, proxy, VPN, or otherwise something that might mean you share your IP with others?

I haven't used Tor when I sign onto mtgox.

I had it too, for no good reason, and it seems to have cleared up in less than 10 minutes.

There is a bug in MtGox in which, when you are automatically logged out with 10 or more minutes or inactivity, but are still on the page, and you try to cancel an order (or probably do something else) a few times, and then you notice that you are logged out, when you try to log in - it tells you that you are blocked. Happened to me a while ago.
