The Same thing is happening to me. I try to log in and it gets stuck at about a quarter way. I am forced to close the game. I try to log into another character but it tells me that my character is still logged in and it won't let me log into them. This happens frequently for me. It never used to happen before 1.4, but ever since it has been constantly happening. I have tried the reccomendations to fix it that were mentioned above, but they don't work. If i wait a while, it lets me back in, but at the first or second load screen it stops at the quarter mark again and I am back to where I was before.

Log into game
click on stuck toon at character select
immediately alt tab out of game
wait 5-10 minutes
open the game from bar again

Close game or force close
Go to users/your name/appdata/swtor/swtor/..
Remove any files associated with the character getting stuck
(You can leave your GUI settings for that character)
Start SWTOR game
Load character

If the issue persists, please clear your DiskCacheArena and try again. You can do so by going to the game directory, and the swtor folder within it. Find the file named above, and delete it. Then restart the game and try to access your character again.

Please let us know how you get on.
Main can't log in and when I try he locks out all others of my characters on that server.

None of these or any of the posted fixes working.

As you've admitted that this is your F up I'm assuming you'll be crediting our accounts?

whats happening like in MMO private servers that have bad programming somewhere a shadow copy of our toons are being left in our place when we try to leave the GF FP's we enter and cant log back on till the shadow copy is gone. Shadow copies log off randomly can be in a minute or 2 or more then a day. From what I read its when ppl want to leave the fp after its completed. It dont matter if your trying to get back to your ship or back to the fleet or w/e else you joined the FP at. My guess which is an obvious guess its within the "Exit here/Previous area" box some programming is bad in there,
