Was wondering what that was, it happened to me every day of this week.

Changed details.

* Infinity loads a rifle and sets up claymore mines around him.

Must defend myself better.

Is it bad that I can't remember which of the ten~fifteen different passwords I have I originally used to register with? I just checked the 'keep me logged in' tab and told FireFox to remember my password and never looked back. :ohdear:

don?t worry, my brother do the same (with long numbers and all!). i tend to use few passwords,but no use to much social theads and never open or admit nothing unknown.
this thing explain why i can?t read my old posts days ago (i was searching a certain image) and take me time log again and that.

You can look up all the saved passwords within Firefox, you know? Extras -> Settings -> Security and go from there.

The people playing mafia should still change their names. It's a forumwide issue so it takes priority over the game's rules. Make it what we call you in-game and keep your avatar/sig unchanged for the time. Anyone that uses this to try gain an advantage in the game will be Lynched. So don't be a retard.

They figured out my ingenious disguise of axman37! Though maybe as a result of not changing my password. Quite the oddity either way.

By the way, small question, if an account does by chance get deleted, is there a means to recover it or will the user have to make a new one?

Heh, just a day after receiving a security notice from winamp forums. But a little paranoia can't hurt.
Now that I'm using a password manager, this is a good excuse to go change the password to something long and machine-generated..

I'll risk it myself thanks. :V I've not been logged out, on the other hand. I forget which one of my absurdly long passwords I use here. Hope it all blows over for you guys soon! :V

Can I just say, you should honestly never let dA share passwords with anything? They've had a few security issues lately...

(I know admins have the ability to send an announcement to everyone on the forum via e-mail - maybe this is the kind of thing that warrants such an alert?)

Looks like Edible gave me more of an upgrade than he thought!

I'm gonna go change my passwords on some other places too. A lot of people tend to use the same password for every site they visit, so in many cases if you manage to break one account you can take that password and get into their e-mail, etc, and other shenanigans from there.

Changing your password isn't going to stop them from trying, it's just going to make it that much harder to brute-force.   Changing your username/displayed name so one is different from the other means they have to also try figuring out your username as well as your password.
