Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

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:

Quote:
Quote:
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.

Ridiculous. New password requires symbols and 10 characters.

If the hash file was using a proper salt, it would not matter how long or how many special characters were in our passwords.

Had nothing but trouble trying to get this stupid new password sorted.
Bloody ludicrous. Even my bank account is far simpler to get into.
For godsake it is only a bloody Car club forum.

I am more than happy to use the same password for all those sites that it does not matter.
But now have a list of over 57 passwords, but nothing like this ________.

So when they break this one are you going to make it even more complicated to sign in??????????????????????????????????
I bet even NASA does not have password entry this complicated. Has to be the worst yet. Maybe that is it! You are trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records.
