Password

Had to change my password again. What's so important on here that I have to worry about being hacked? And why have I NEVER had to change my password on another forum ran by this same outfit?

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Perhaps because you are a moderator and the powers above think it will keep your privileges more secure.

Changing passwords on a regular basis never made sense to me, I don’t see how “Whitewash32” is any more secure than “Whitewash31”.

I thought it applied to everyone but may be a punishment for being a moderator. For years all I have done is change the last digit.

I don't know what is triggering that Dave...

I just go to the Admin page and force my password back like it should be.

but, I can't recall having to ever change it lately.

I remember when they just arbitrarily decided to zero out everyone's password.
what a colossal blunder that was.....
so many people never record what email address they use, or even what username they are using. just let the browser handle it all.

But I had to enter a new password to log in so that's no help. Simple enough to change the last digit but still don't get the point of changing it.

I got the password change notice last month and changed the number configuration of the password. This forum and F6Baggers both hit me for the change on the same day. Then I also have floating IPs and that's another problem.

You're right about that, if I use the VPN and forget to turn the feature off it becomes a problem.
