  • Did anybody need to post a new password? This site would not allow me to do anything until I posted another password. Why??

    After all these years and they now want me to change my password. It took place the same time Outdoor Life user JM got his old account back. Was this because of the spammers over at F&S? It seems like the spammers upset the Apple Cart with nutty things happening here also. Profile photos missing, you need to change your log-in password and old user website accounts are popping back up.

    If the old passwaor did not meet the criteria you would be required to make a new, secure passwaor.

      Yes. I was prompted about the same time as the FS attack occurred. I received and email confirming the password change.

        Yep, a couple-three weeks ago. I tried changing it to "BonnierSucks24/7," but got the response, "Password strength: Weak" -- I guess because it's just stating the obvious.

            My old password met their criteria.

                LMAO Matt, Bonnier does suck as for policing their websites.

                    Hey Buckshot, Is it the Spammers fault? I like the idea of one posted thread per hour per user. Over two thousand incoming F&S spam threads are like a live bomb hitting the website. ?
                    Perfect Timing?

                      I was forced to change my password right BEFORE the spamming started...I think it is just a coincidence that you are just now being asked to change it. It was probably for the best...my old password would've been extremely easy to guess, hah.

                        Yes, I changed the first letter to capital. Problem solved and my ever shrinking memory can retain it. It is pretty creative though

                          That would be a weak password, that is because everyone knows that ! How would anyone expect to keep that a secret ?

                              No Clue. I don't care for that idea too much unless you mean 1 posted thread as a new question, that I could get behind. If you mean 1 post per user per hour, that would be tough because I'm always busy so when I can sneak away to the boards, I try to make the most of it as I can. If you mean 1 question max per hour, that seems like a smart and reasonable thing to do. The old site had time limits as well, but they were buggy.
