AudiogoN is in the process of finally updating this forum and virtual systems. The email I got this morning says it will happen on November 30th. I'm sure this changeover is affecting some functions.

Here is the email:

Introducing the New Audiogon Forums and Virtual Systems

On November 30th, 2015 we will be retiring the existing Audiogon Forums and Virtual Systems and replacing them with entirely new applications.

Don't worry, all of your data has been preserved. We've imported every post and every virtual system. All of your past activity and history has already been migrated.

The new applications have been designed to feel familiar while incorporating new features, and both are 100% mobile ready.
I ran into the same issue recently, but I found an easy workaround. Easy, that is, once I discovered it :-)

Go to the page where the problematic "Edit this System" link appears. Before clicking on it, open up another tab in your browser, and in that tab go to the "My Forum Threads" link under "Community" on the Audiogon home page. When you click on that link you'll probably be asked to log in, even if you had previously logged in. After logging in there go back to the tab having the "Edit this System" link, and it should work.

I would anticipate that issues such as this will not occur after the forum upgrade Mofi mentioned goes into effect in a few weeks. Or if any such issues do occur they would be addressed promptly and efficiently. I say that in part because the software developers who are working on the upgrade have made very favorable impressions on me in a few communications I've exchanged with them recently in connection with the beta version of the new site.

FYI the new Virtual Systems page is here:

https://systems.audiogon.com/

The new format is very user friendly I think they did a great job with the update.

Al, the eternal optimist. Must say though, it would be nice to see this site get its act together.
Papermill,
I've had the same problem since mid summer and was told the same as Mofimadness posted.
Leave it to Almarg to figure a way around it, thanks Al :-)!
Al,
Thanks.
That works! How in the world did you find that?
I've been meaning to update pictures, so now I have a little project ahead...
Jond - thanks for the link.
Happy listening!
Al, glad to hear good impressions of teh software team doing upgrades currently. Hopefully Agon learned from their last upgrade a couple years back which was a huge fiasco.

I noticed the issue last week when I wanted to do some updates to my system description. In recent months it has been evident that "remembering" log-ins has been erratic on the forum part of the site, so I figured the issue might have something to do with that. Therefore I suspected that performing a log-in on the forum part of the site immediately before clicking the "edit this system" link, but without leaving the page on which that link appears, might do the trick. Which suggested doing the log-in in a separate browser tab. Just took about 3 or 4 minutes for me to discover that.

BTW, I notice that there are now some writeups in the Audiogon blog about the revisions to the forum and virtual system software. Click on "Blog" under "Community" on the Audiogon home page.

Looks like some nice enhancements/new features coming.

I'd like to see the site become more inherently visual over time. No reason in this day and age that any product listing for sale (not just those "featured" should not show an image when browsing or searching.
I like Al also corresponded with Audiogon during Beta testing of the new systems and forums and just want to say I found the staff to be very responsive and eager to hear and respond to feedback. The new format for systems is very easy to use and looks great.
