Hello Everyone,

Per the latest announcements we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. Shortly you should be receiving an email directing you how to change your password. It will look like this:

Subject: Your new password for *site name*
Dear *username*,

Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:

Username: *username*

Password: *Randomly generated temp password*

To change your password, please visit this page: *link to password reset edit page from USERCP*

If you suspect this email is a scam, you can confirm the legitimacy of this email by manually navigate to the forum URL yourself and use your new password to log in.

All the best,

Site Name
As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to updated it accordingly.

If you do not receive this email please go to the contact us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Everyone,

We wanted to give you an update on the reset password emails that went out yesterday. Due to the high volume of emails going out and some service providers blocking them as spam, users have either been getting them late, or not at all. If you have not received your password reset email please use the password reset function “forgot password”. These emails will go through a paid provider and should show up instantly. To do so just go to log in >> once it redirects you click forgot password >> follow the steps provided. If you do not remember the email address associated with your account you can use the contact us tab at the bottom of the page to email us for assistance. Please select the “other” option and add subject “security password issues”

We apologize for any disruption this has caused to your forum experience.

well lets say you (i.e. Verticalscope - not the mods & admins here) f...ed big up this time..


..and how about a little more relaxed password policy...? (no use in having draconian password requirements if the pw daabases arent better protected..)


also, this thread is inaccessible for those unable to login .... :c-n:

Change Password

Where is the"Change Password" button located?

There is going to be a lot of requesting new passwords every time some one logs on.:wall::wall:

I realize that minimum 10 characters with upper & lower case and symbols is pretty much standard nowadays but for goodness sake, is it really necessary? Now we have to remember another long line of GOBLEDEEGOOK just to get in?

In my opinion, you are making it very difficult on members for very little benefit. There is also a very good chance that many people will use the same password they have on other site, which is totally counter to what you are trying to acheive. Also, being a member of several of your sites, I find you are really bad at giving members a heads up before you throw this kind of bull at us. You want us to visit often and support your advertisers but you do nothing to make that easier.
