    Security breaches and password resets

    My patience is worn very thin from having to change passwords yet again due to security breaches.

    Whatever the problem is you guys might wanna fix it fix it good and fix it now before this place hemorrhages even more members.

    I have not had this problem with password resets. I only had to change mine just the one time. Weird you are having this issue still.

    I get that message that I must change password often when attempting to log in. I don't actually change it, I've only changed it once. I've always been able to get on by trying my log in in a different place such as the right side bar on the home page instead of the log in button at the top right of each page.

    Don't know if this will work for you. Hope this helps.

    Is this happening with computers or phones, tablets, or does it affect all devices?

    Weebles, I logged out and tried logging in in the different places. Still works for me. Regardless, it does sound like there is an issue.

    It doesn't matter what machine I use. The only common denominators are (1) this site and (2) logging in. Today there was no password change required.

    I too have only had to update my password once, all went easy and now log in is quick. I use three different computers to sign in with and all is well. Have you added anything other programs to your computer lately that may have changed your personal settings? Maybe try logging in from a different IP address on another computer and see it that works for you?

    Hey there

    What message are you seeing when you sign in? Could you grab a screenshot please? There is a pop up message that will display if you enter an incorrect username/password, but for a proper login all the messages should be done.

    Are you using the Remember Me function? Is the site still having you sign in again when you come back? Are you randomly being kicked off while browsing? Are you getting a failed login with the password you know is correct? Try clearing your cache and cookies - we are seeing some browsers are randomly pulling old cookies and not recognizing the new, correct passwords.

    Let us know if this clears anything up for you, and please get us the message that you are seeing when you are asked to reset your password.

    This is what I do... I do not log in with the home window log in that is in the center. I log in with the one on the right side...

    The way each of the login's work is different!

    I haven't changed my password but did have trouble a while before this issue came up. I can still log in. I use the right hand side on home page, and use the remember me feature. I don't even know why we need to worry about passwords and such on a forum like this. I'm not going to expose my banking info here. I do, however, have issues with my computer slowing or freezing on here. I'm the least capable when it comes to computing.,,, Oh, and maintaining my batteries.lol
