Well, thanks to the Admin, I'm done with this site.

I'm not ***king around with some retarded password I won't remember. It's a ***king forum, not nuclear launch codes.

Seriously?
Anyone who would leave their forum just because they had to change a password didn't care about it enough to be there anyway.


Don't let the door hit you in the azz, is all I can say.

Pretty simple:

  • Copy the password e-mailed to you, use it to login to this site.
  • Go to User CP (top right of your screen) click the link to bring up your User Control Panel.
  • Look under Settings and Options, and click on Edit E-mail & Passwords.
  • Paste in your provided password and then change it noting the following:
Must be at least 10 characters
Must contain lower-case characters
Must contain upper-case characters
Must contain numbers
Must contain symbols

Example: My1VTXrules!

It's a screening process to make this a better site. How did you make it through the filter???

I can think of a few members who should receive bogus provided passwords so they can't return. Please assist!

I think it's an extraordinarily bad idea to change people's passwords without prior consent. It happened and I was lucky to be able to log in. I used a throw away e-mail address when I signed up for this site and it was nothing of a miracle that I was able access your e-mail about password changes.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what
I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

They were hacked in a big way, the fear is that people use the same password here that they use everywhere and that is why they did the forced reset.

Had the same issue, however I cannot access that email account anymore.

I was surprised that I was able to access this account, one that I have not used in a very long time.

I sent the Amdin a PM under this account for help ..... lets see how it goes.

If they cannot assist me in accessing my active account, I see no need to stay around.

Or maybe I will just use this account going forward and let the old one die off.

Well, it appears I finally got my email, and had to change my password. Not really a 'big deal', though. Maybe the Admins think I'm alright after all!

Hey House O' Pain - thanks for the [easy]to understand directions on how to negotiate the site. You can keep your arrogant attitude, though, because it's not called for, needed, or appreciated.
