Login problems?

Post by Gerrit » Fri May 26, 2006 11:23 am

Some people seem to have problems with their Newbies password.
Here's some information:

When you sign up, you can choose any password you like.
When you forget your password, you can click on "I forgot my password" in the login screen. A new password is generated automatically by the forum software and sent to you. It looks like I sent that email but it's an automatically generated and sent email
When people email me that they need a new password, I go to the login screen and click the "I forgot my password" link for them, so the forum software will automatically send a new password to them.<
When you get one of those letter/number passwords, copy and paste it during login, go to your profile and change the pasword in whatever you want.
The passwords are stored encrypted. Nobody, myself included, can see the user passwords.
