    Exclamation 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:

    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.

    As per the other thread....why are you doing this?

    I cant vouch for every member here, but I don't have any information in my account on this site that is "confidential" as such (IE: you don't have my visa card number or my bank account details).

    The security of members accounts is very important to us and although a members personal information or private information such as credit card info is not stored on the site, many people use the same password for multiple sites.

    This could create a potential hole for a hacker to get your info which is what we would like to avoid. The forced password change for now is to insure there are no holes on the forum and the one that should happen a year from now can be revisited then and we can look into if it is still needed on the site.

    Thanks,
    - JB

    Seems to me that there are a number of motors port forums owned by this group is there any work to consolidate the log in so that you have one account across all of the forums? Seems lame to me to have to have mult accounts and logins with the same company. Beyond that isnt that a wast of resources on your end?

    I'm a member at another of their properties (triumphrat.net). I signed up years ago with an e-mail address that I no longer use. I never received e-mail from the website, so it never occurred to me to update the e-mail address on file.

    They sent a password reset e-mail but didn't mention it on the website until after. Now I'm locked out and haven't heard back from the admins.

    Kinda sucks.
