Were you able to reset your password from the information Malicious Compliance provided?

Is my user name posted when I post for a response and if so I would like to change it. I thought my user name was just for logging in

1. Yes, the new password format requirement is ridiculous.

2.So far every time I visit the site it does not recognize my password and I have to go through the lost password scenario again.

My browser saves the password so that I can reference them if needed, as well as auto login, so I know I'm not doing anything wrong. Granted I do not come here daily but I had to change it on Jan 26, the 29th and again this morning. It's beyond stupid.

Suggestion:

setup the forum to accept email addys with periods in the prefix?

E.G. - [email protected]

Fortunately gmail maps to the same email addy with or without periods, so I was able to join (this site seems to have more stringent rules on passwords than my workplace does, and I work for a Fortune 50 corp, so that is saying something) - but when I clear my browser cache and I have to remember the email for this site, I forget that it doesn't accept periods in email addresses so I have problems logging back in with my email address until I remember.

And really, is all that security necessary?? It is just a forum after all - not a banking site.

And for what it is worth - silly rules on passwords and expiration does not make it more secure.

I wish I had something to offer here, but you shouldn't have to be doing that every time you visit here! The only thing that occurs to me is that you're not saving the "newest" password in your browser after you updated it; therefore your browser is plugging in an older password and triggering the reset sequence. I know that each time I update my passwords (a year at a time), I get a popup in Chrome asking me if I want to save the new password for that account. I click yes, and it overwrites the old one with the new one, and I'm good to go from that point. That *should* be working for you, too.

Sometimes, existing saved login information can interfere with the saving of new information. It might be worth it to clear any saved usernames and passwords for the site from your browser and then give the reset tool a fresh go.
