Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I have gained enough from this forum and others to totally and completely justify spending a few minutes per year to comply with a password policy, whether that policy is warranted or not. To each his own I suppose.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

It's more than just a few minutes a year. Its now having to manage complex passwords just to use a forum.

Every time I come to this forum I am going to have to do a password reset because I am not going remember that I replaced a 1 with a ! in my password. So in the choice of continuing to reset my password or just go elsewhere? I will just go elsewhere.

I just received my email notification for the reset. That password must have come from the CIA encryption department.


Lol. That's what I thought.
Btw, total elapsed time to copy and paste my new password from my email AND sign in? 8 seconds. Wow...
If I want to change it, I can. If I can't remember 0's from o's, I'll look on my cheat sheet of passwords.
Worst case? A password reset only takes 60seconds including login. For me? Don't care...

The "click here" link is broken as it has an extra h in hhtp://

Creating a password using the new system might seem daunting and inconvenient, but it's easy to still create a password that's easy to remember.

I am concerned that the reset is causing old members to lose posting privileges. That's not good. If that's happening, please PM me ASAP.

I know this caught all of us by surprise, but hang in there and give it a chance.
