Hello 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 THE EVER LOVING FUCK ARE YOU GUYS DOING? PASSWORDS NOW NEED TO BE 10 CHARACTERS, INCLUDE A CAPITOL, SYMBOL, AND NUMBER? How the fuck am I supposed to remember that? This isn't increased password security, this is making sure I leave.

My apologies for the change in the password requirements, there are several tricks you can do to remember your password. Here are some examples:

Wow, a moderator can't figure it out?
And that's how he addresses the situation to admin and the forum?
Apology to Glenda for the profanity would be good
No wonder I left
maybe it's time for him to leave
It's not complicated.
