Everyone really should start using a password manager like LastPass. Every password I use is a unique auto generated string of letters, numbers, and symbols at least 16-20 characters long, unless the websites don't support it. They will auto-fill the username and password field on the website so you never need to type your password, so it's actually quicker.

That's great until you lose your phone (or any of your devices) and then someone can access EVERY one of your accounts without needing the password, sine both your username and password is filled in automatically! :-)

It's always best policy to have a strong password and not keep the same password for long. It's not a big deal to change it.

X2 ^^^^^

Before i found myself looking on the forum non stop and checking in and helping others. Now with the new layout, I avoid the forum because its hard to keep track of the thread you posted in. I used to use "active thread" now its just stamped with the same threads and some which arent even active. This "new layout" wants you to use all functions available just to navigate through the forum and notice all new changes. This isnt a free flow easy to use forum anymore, thats for sure. Just complicated.


End of rant.

I am seeing a lot fewer new posts at login than I used to. That might be a suckage indicator.

Well, it's not like they're going to roll back to the old forum. I pretty much only navigate through "New Posts" and if it's not there,

Another reason why I really like using Tapatalk - the interface not only never changes, but the interface is exactly the same for all forums that I use! :-) Pure content - and extremely quick and easy to use - all new posts are listed under "Unread". It may take a bit to get used to Tapatalk, but once you get used to it, it's pure awesomeness.

I had considerable problems resetting my password after receiving the email change notification (and after numerous attempts, was able to reset it today). Twice, over a period of several days, I sent a polite message about the problem to the site via the "contact us" link in the original change email.

I never received the courtesy of a reply.

It's clear the site operators were unprepared when they began this forced email change fiasco.

I've gotten past it too.
Change is inevitable, & people always bitch. I've been in retail for 25yrs.
>>> Not changing = Retail death <<<

Literally as simple as that....

I really like the Lastpass pwd-mgr program too! Once set up, it's slicker than hell.
