Oh my god it happened AGAIN! AlfaBB Suddenly stopped accepting my 10 character, 1 cap, one non-alfa-numeric, 2 number password. Tried it a dozen times. Requested a reset. Waited 5 minutes for email. clicked "reset" option in email, waited another 5 minutes for new password to arrive in email. Entered random letter password from email to get in. Went to change it to something less random, got the CURRENT (random password from email) password wrong and had to enter everything again. Really, this sucks. AlfaBB isn't Comcast. Quit treating your contributors like Comcast does.
GHNL, I saw your post and read the thread for why it changed to 10 characters, but I don't buy it. Why do users have to suffer because some third party app got hacked? There is NO REASON for a password this complex on a BB site. NONE!
Now I've forgotten why I wanted to log in to begin with....... oh, yes, because if you perform a search for a thread without logging in, the site makes you type in a capcha. Pfft.
