Forcing me to change password every 3 months

This isn't a bank website for christ's sake. We don't need super top secret security here folks.

Turn off this stupid requirement please.

Bottom line - you do not have to change the password, you can just re-enter the same password.

Believe it or not this website has been hacked before on several occasions, the revolving password is for your security

Oh, so we don't actually have to change our passwords and this requirement is serving no benefit but to annoy the crap out of us. Got it.

I've visited tons of forums and have many accounts, none of them have this kind of requirement, there must be something very special about this one.

Or I should add, I'd be annoyed but I haven't logged in enough to have them do it to me yet. It IS why I'm not an Ifish member anymore. They got hacked and wanted everyone to do new, longer, improved passwords. My familiar ones didn't work do I walked away. Anyone want to hear about my crabbing trip last weekend? It involved the truck, had to use 4wd to get the boat out of the bay.

I admit it annoyed me as well but I'm over it now, or until the next time I have to do it.


<<I used to own 2 website/forums which I sold but I never made my people do it, but rules are rules.

I'm a Network Admin for a college, and I'm used to people whining for this very reason...

First time I have seen this too. Strange. Log-in is always seems hit or miss.
And what is with the GAY pop up asking me to post a question... REALLY?

What 'pisses me off' is the check box for the Site to "REMEMBER ME" once I log on is gone. Have to Log on every time I visit. Getting to where it ain't worth it.

For everyone else, I've changed some settings, it should be less frequent in requesting the password change

Not sure when that was changed. I noticed it too. I will ask the IB guys and see what is up with that.

The remember me option is now just defaulted. Most other websites just remember you and we wanted to "get with the times."
