    What would be someone's motivation for hacking a forum? There are nuggets of useful information here but having my password isn't the gateway to getting my Syncrowave.

    Re: Replace password after 5 days??? Really??

    There's the possibility to get your password and email address plus possibly other links and info you may have posted up in your profile. As mentioned a lot of people don't bother to use very secure passwords for most stuff. If they can get access to your email, they can possibly get access to your computer and plant a virus to gain them more data like banking info or even your email contacts to spread the virus even further.

    It's amazing what people can do with what to many seems meaningless data. I saw a show years ago where they were able to develop a fairly accurate picture of what the reporter did day to day from what would have seemed to be meaningless information. From there they were able to hack more serious things like credit card statements and so on.

    Just get a LONG piece of paper and write down each time you have to change it...or, use a spreadsheet now for the WW password changes.

    Hopefully they fix this 5 day pwd change thing promptly, I don't intend to play this game for long. If this continues it will be time to go elsewhere.

    You could use your old password just put a 1,2,3,4,5 behind it or in front of it then you just have to remember the number.

    Third thread on the topic so I'm sure it's all been covered, but if you keep trying to re-use similar passwords your are undermining the efforts of the IT's trying to prevent us from getting hacked. I'm on multiple sites that are having issues and yes, we all hope it will be resolved soon. Thank the hackers ( worst ones seem to come from Russia and China)... are they gov't funded? Who knows...

    I had changed my password a few days ago like everyone else. Came to the site today to see this:

    It just popped up again for me. Second round with the short password interval password change requirement.

    Everyone should quit your whining.

    3 threads on the same subject?

    Yes it can be a inconvenience but if having to put in a new,password is a major hassle then don't bother.
    Take it or leave it.

    And stop complaining about it thru PM's.
    I am no different than you.

    Sorry, I didn't mean for it to sound like whining. I just changed my password and posted the comment. I didn't feel like it was worth PMing you, but I also wanted to let the admins know that the issue is not yet resolved.

    As for putting in a new password being a hassle, well I already lose several hours at work each month changing passwords. I deal with a lot of stuff that has 30 day expirations, though I have to admit that 5 days is just plain comical.

    I just got hit with the same thing today. 5 days ago, it would not accept a password that was similar to the old one.

    I read through the thread but didn't see any explanation for why this is happening multiple times.

    This (formally these) thread reminds me of the TV commercial showing the family that comes absolutely unglued when they loose their internet connection for 12 minutes.

    We are notifying the proper authorities.

    System told me I had to change it because it was 8 days old.... So it appears to be getting better (than 5 days)!!!!!

    Agree with the majority though - changing passwords this often will push members away.

    Yeah, it might take awhile. Like Steve said, we have done all we can on our end. We have no control over the web admin side of the site.

    Hang tight, hit the road whatever. If it's that big of a deal then do whatever you gotta do. Being pissed off about it isn't going to get it fixed any faster. As far as explanations, yeah we get it. We know about as much as anyone else. Logic would stand to reason that if we had the ability to fix this, we probably already would have...

    It'll get sorted out, it always does.

    How many times?

    Last time I came to WW my password had to be reset because of the verticle something or other problem. OK, no big deal. Reset it and done. Today my password is 6 days old and I have to reset it again. Is this something that is going to have to be done every 6 days?

    Not You!

    I get it every 5 days.

    I'm going over to weld.com.

    No password problems over there.
