    Default Security Breach?

    I never received an email with a new password, I had to make a new account! My former account username was diggerdan... What's up admin?

    If you didn't receive an email with a new temp password then follow the "click here" link so a new password can be sent. Once it's sent and you're on the site you need to change the temp password for your own. Be sure to check your spam folder if it's not in your new incoming folder.

    Ok try this. Go to the log in screen. Input your screen name and then select "forgot password " link. This should promt the system to send you a new email with temp password, use that to sign in then change PW.

    I'm sorry, I am unable to reset your password, but the forgot password idea should work.

    I'll also PM the admins and request assistance for you.

    Is it possible that you registered using a different email address? That is what happened to me. The email went to an address I don't use very often. I guess I used that address when I registered. If you have an old address, check for the new password email there.

    FYI
    Thanks for the heads up! I've emailed his diggerdan account a password reminder so he should be able to log in with that.

    Default Security Breach?

    I got the same email too. Logged in with a temp password then changed it. Not sure what prompted it though outside of maybe a normal security "best practice."

    By the way, the reason for the password resets is that the parent company had a number of its web sites hacked. There was a post about this. The new, stronger password requirements and password reset are to mitigate any threat and help ensure that your accounts do not get hacked in the future.
