Hello there @Nagle; sorry to hear about this.

At first, could you check if you're getting the same 500 error when trying this on another browser, after having cleared your browser's cache and/or an incognito window?

Let me know what you find and we'll take it from there. Thanks!

Having the same issue. Tried opening my account on an incognito window and still giving me the same message.

What about a completely different browser @khumar ?

Do you get the same results? If so, please forward me a screenshot so I can have a better view of the matter at hand.

Thanks in advance and happy Monday!

Thanks for the screenshot @khumar !

Would it be OK with you if I reached out via the email address that's associated with your Community's profile so we can have a further look into this?
