    Attention - Password and Security Update

    Hey all,

    Over the next few days we will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on the community, we regularly monitor the site and the Internet to keep everyone's account information safe. We've recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, we are implementing the following changes to improve security even further:

    1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

    2) Your passwords will expire on a 365 day basis. When you login on the 366th day, you will have to change it.

    We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

    Thanks all,

    Helena

    What is it with the login on this site. It took an act of congress to get on and then when I go to change my password to what I was using I get kicked off. Please help.

    I believe one can not reuse the same password.

    Have you tried making a new one ?

    I have requested a username/password at least a dozen times and nothing worked until the last time, and yes I can see myself messing it up a time or two but not that much. I have tried my original password and or username many times. Even the passwords that I was sent did not work. When I first signed up for this site I never had a problem. I am not much of a forum guy but there is a lot of great info on this site and would like to continue using it. Also when I try changing the password that was sent to my password it would kick me out. Please, If something can be done do so. Thank you very much

    Hey there,

    I have sent you an email that will allow you to reset your password.
    Give it a shot through there, and clear your browsers cache and cookies.
    Let me know if that works, otherwise I will manually set you up with another password.

    Let us know,

    Richard.
