Here's an idea: Stop making us use our Graal passwords as forum passwords.

Remember back when we could use whatever passwords we wanted on the forums? Remember how back then, we didn't have problems with hacked accounts spamming the forums because when idiots downloaded trainers, only their Graal password was compromised? Let's make it like that again.

Iprefer to have it as one password. I had to keep too many in my mind.
If someone gets the acc, and? The RC is protected ith the pcid and the ip...

But I also DO remember one of these we can pick our passwords actions very good. Angel used her AIM password as forum password but someone got her AIM password and messed up the forums completly!

Hell, we should be able to have custom passwords on the forums and for our client accounts. It's dumb that they make our passwords, and it obviously isn't really helping much.

You used to be able to change your password if you were a server owner or had level 4 rc. But they changed that unfortunately.

It shouldn't even be that complicated. It should be like any other password changing service.

But that would require common sense?!

I agree, but as I stated before it would be nice if the service provided was more secure, but I guess that's not going to happen.

the question is, since when does it matter how secure a password actually is anymore? just have a maximum number of attempts from a given IP to stop people from doing the brute force method.

it makes no sense to force people to have certain passwords when the only way in which they actually are compromised is by having their whole computer's security being compromised. when the user's security is bypassed it doesn't matter if the password is "bugger" or "ijs8Ej9" or whatever, because they are equally easy to steal if a trojan is present.

Haha, Yeah I remember doing that when I was in Charge and Temp Owned a server beacuse the Owner had things to do in his time.

I also agree. I want to make my own passwords.
