Forum says wrong password

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The forum keeps telling me I have the wrong password. Now I know 100% (literally 100%, not 99.9%) that I have the right password. It isn't an issue with case sensitivity. Can't use the saved password. Can't manually enter the password. EVERY time I need to re-log in, I have to reset the password.

Any help here?

Greetings Admiral!

when creating new password could you please try to type your password in a text editor like notepad, save it and try to copy-paste next time it asks you the passsword? That is to make sure the password is the same. The problem is strange, I've never seen it before

Did as you suggested. Then logged out. restarted browser. Tried to log in by pasting the PW from the file on my desktop to the box. Wrong PW.

Reset for the 3rd time today

Found the problem. Instead of display name, I was putting in email.

As a point of security, having the display name as half the login is dangerous. That's 1/2 the login detail right there, on public display. This really should be changed.

I believe you can change the displayed name in the account settings, glad to hear you've fixed the problem
