Okay, I just changed a few things. However, does this new nickname thing mean that I can't go with my previous username as my nickname?
Again, we can change your username to something else so you can use it as your nickname.  Just PM a staff member.

Okay, got my username changed (thanks TSO), and changed my password.

Had a couple of thoughts though:
  • Could the attacker(s) be doing anything with OpenID authentication?
  • The one time I got logged out, I got logged out of TV Tropes at the same time. Does that mean the logout was probably something on my end, or might it mean that TV Tropes is also being attacked?

Edit: I changed my TV Tropes password, too.

OpenID isn't working at all at the moment, and as for being logged out of here and TVTropes at the same time, that's all you :B

Darn it. After changing BOTH my name and password, I just got logged out. What the heck?

I'm screwing with stuff so it's possible sessions are just being corrupted.  There hasn't been a successful attempt since I blocked TOR last night.

For the people who got logged out after changing name and password, I remember that any previous time I changed my name, I got logged out after some time, so I assume that changing your display name somehow defaults the selected option from "login forever" to "1 hour", so if you want to be sure, log out and back in after you changed your name. If you get disconnected again, then something is definitely up in the air.  :derp:
This 1-hour thing seems to be true. After I had my username changed and password reset, I was logged out when I finally came back here, and when I went to log back in it was set to stay logged in for 60 minutes.

All your existing cookies are invalidated once your username is changed.  So you'll have to set yourself to stay logged in again.

At this point there hasn't been a successful attempt since last night when I blocked TOR.  So for those of you continuing to be logged out, clean your cache and cookies and make sure you're setting "stay logged in forever" when you log in.

I'm sorry.

Maybe I'm a little slow, but I don't understand this at all...

I have a:
Username
Name
Nickname

But I still want to use "GreenVirus," so do I have to fill in the nickname field? I uh... honestly don't get this...

I'll have three fields with the same information...  :/

Set your nickname to GreenVirus, and then if your username is also GreenVirus, ask an admin to change that to something different. The other name (the one that shows at the top-left of your posts) can be whatever you want.

Username is for the purpose of logging in only. You and the admins are the only ones that will ever be able to see it. It should be different from your nickname.
Display name is what's on the top left of your posts and can be set to anything you want.
Nickname is the little line under your avatar that shows which user you are. It fills in for having to go to the user's profile and check the username there. As stated before, it should be different from your username for safety reasons.

So, for example, you can set your username to Jim Jim Jimmy Jim Jimmy Jim Jim, then set your nickname to GreenVirus, then set your display name to GreenVirus or whatever else you want. The purpose of having a different username is to make it significantly more difficult for someone to get into your account.

Ok, that makes MUCH more sense. I get it now.
Well, I want to keep Agent of the BSoD as my name so I guess that'll have to be my nickname. So that means I have to change my username don't I.

Then ask to have your username changed so you can use it as your nick?  It takes me 5 seconds to do it really, just PM me what you want as a username.

Anyone whose display name has ever matched their username should get their username changed, since old quotes keep their authors' old display names.

Immediately after, or some time after?

If the former, that's supposed to happen.

You did remember to change the login time back to forever, right? After clearing everything, it defaults back to an hour.  :D

Weel,  Hello everyone.
  I am quite new here so no PMin for me, hah. Sadly, I got here after these changes were set. I would have liked to suggest making the login screen 'lock out' a user for so much time after so many failed attempts at guessing username and password. I can't say I like having to remember two usernames, but for the sake of security, I will deal.
  Thanks for keeping our information safe. Peace.

Yes, allowing other people to lock you out of your own account is wise.  And you only have to remember your username.

Is it possible that they're monitoring any changes that have been made since the first attack?
