Password Question

I hadn't been on the forum in awhile and had to change my password. Seriously, why is there a ten-character password plus caps plus numeric plus non-alpha character? Is this now a bank?

The reason for the password change is to keep your account secure. These restrictions will loosen up soon when we make some additional changes to our site security (implementing HTTPS).

Some wonder why the complicated requirements for the password - most people use the same passwords for other accounts which makes it easier to remember, sure. But if one gets compromised, the rest of your other accounts will be accessible because of the same password used.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.


Cheers,
Natalie
