My Account is locked?

Within the last hour I auto signed in to play, just like I've always done since April and all was well. After a few minutes I had to close the game and when I fired up the game again, Social club said I had to sign in. Maybe my caps lock key was on or I did not recall my PW so my log in was unsuccessful. Tried a couple more times with the same result, finally R* locked my account. Tried the PW reset route with the email they sent but that didn't work. I entered a new PW using the required protocol, 8 characters, one capital, one number. When I went to confirm, my New PW entry would get shortened by one character and as a result would not match. I even tried another keyboard. How many flaming loops do I have to jump through and how long do I have to wait before I can attempt to log in to the game?

happened to me before that i could not sign in any more, if you know your password is correct just chill out and try later.

I can't sign in to get support. My account is locked - I'm being punished because of numerous failed attempts to log in. Catch 22?

After a few minutes of troubleshooting, I discovered that my keyboard was not responding to pressing the shift key. In fact, it was doing just the opposite. Rebooted and the keyboard problem went away but I'm still locked out of the game - even though I'm using the correct login. I decided to reset the PW, they sent me a email to reset but it doesn't recognize my email address. If I register a new account, will I loose all my saves and standings?

I was hoping for some assistance when I posted here. I just wanted to know how to restore my account. Nothing more, nothing less.

Rockstar's login restrictions are overly strict. I've found in the past that once you've been locked out after a few failed login attempts I was unable to sign in until the following day. Last time that happened was before GTA V came out on PC. I've no idea if they're any more relaxed about it now.

Yeah, but you probably know more about fixing game issues than they do.

You can't. You'll just have to wait it out.
