    I just changed my password

    5 days old

    How often is this going to happen?

    Your password is 5 days old, and has therefore expired.

    Please change your password using this page.

    You only need two passwords - switch between them each time

    The forum team have been made aware and are working on this, please be patient, I know its frustrating ... I have just had to change mine again after 5 days.

    They will get us fixed as soon as they can.

    You can 'change it' to your current password. Just type it in all three boxes.

    Hi

    Sorry for the lack of notice to the password reset we should have told you, but we didnt want to draw attention to the spam creators.

    We wanted to clamp down on the amount of spam that gets posted to the forum, and one of the many measures taken was to ask everyone to reset their password, and thus help weed out the bots and disposable accounts.

    Were sorry for the inconvenience caused, but hopefully most managed to easily reset theirs.

    If you cant remember your password you can get a reset link sent to the email you used to register your account.

    If you've changed your email address please update it in your user profile settings. If you're having problems updating it e.g., you no longer have access to the email account you registered with please email the Forum Team telling us your original email address.

    As an extra measure weve also put in place a 90 day time limit for password expiry, and would appreciate your feedback.

    So now we have to reset our password every 90 days?

    Even that is too often
