Attention - Password and Security Update

Hello Everyone,

Per the latest announcements we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. Shortly you should be receiving an email directing you how to change your password. It will look like this:

Quote:
Quote:
Subject: Your new password for *site name*
Dear *username*,

Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:

Username: *username*

Password: *Randomly generated temp password*

To change your password, please visit this page: *link to password reset edit page from USERCP*

If you suspect this email is a scam, you can confirm the legitimacy of this email by manually navigate to the forum URL yourself and use your new password to log in.

All the best,

Site Name


As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to updated it accordingly.

If you do not receive this email please go to the contact us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

If we change our password now, will we still get the notice and have to change it again?

If so, I will wait until I get the notice

Say,
I really didn't see the need to change my user name too? I feel violated.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I'm just wondering WHY it has taken OVER 2 hours to get my password reset??? This SHOULD be a simple process. VERY frustrating. Makes one want to close out the account and NEVER look back.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

As of an hour ago, I never received an email stating about the change. I just went in & requested a password change to initiate things.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Thank you to the Mods and admin, it did take a bit but I'm back on and running. Best way to pass the time is send a pw request to MTF, go to CL/ebay and search for your favorite stuff, when you are done check your email.

This is not my message, I did not request any password change or user ID change.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

If I'm doing the work around right, I now have to change my old password to one with 10 characters with upper and lower case and numbers and symbols? The temporary pw you sent me didn't have all that. I love MTF but this is really frustrating.

Mr. Beef you picked a heck of a time to become a mod.

Every Verticalscope site has gone to the 10 character-digit-special character password...so if you only have one site to change consider yourself lucky...

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

This was frustrating, but its such a great site and this has only happened once since I became a member (My profile says I joined in 2009! I didn't think I'd been here that long, I had been lurking for a few months even before that! Where has the time gone!) so I'm really not complaining. Keep up the good work, guys!

Paul

I guess I shouldn't have tried that at home!
