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.

I wondered what was up when I got the email. For a moment I was afraid that someone with evil intent was trying to break in using my user name. I imagine this is a security thing.

Yep, it is a security thing. I hope this doesn't happen with Fish Forums until my ban there is up.

Fish are family, not just pets.

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

I know I'm not around much (ask about jccaclimber1's accidental demise sometime), but seriously, I need a better password on this forum than I did when I had a job at a Fortune 500 company? This entire forum sees what, 5 posts per day? While I have a lot of thoughts on the demise of this forum, I'm not sure what is being achieved here.
