Hey 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
Community Management

Before we do the password reset, we want all users to ensure that the email address associated with their account is correct and up to date. Password resets get sent through your email address, and if you no longer remember, or have access to the email address you registered with you will not be able to get back in. To change your email address, click here.

We are currently ongoing site maintenance to reset member passwords. You should have received an email from us with a temporary password to login in order to change your password, but if you are unable to login to the site, or are receiving a notice that your password is incorrect, please click here to reset your password. You will receive an email to change your password. Due to the volume of emails, this may take a few minutes or a few hours. Please make sure to check your spam folder for it if you don't see it. If you do not receive your email, please contact us. We apologize for the inconvenience.
