Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Got thrown off again, wouldn't accept the password it generated itself, so got a new password. Again.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I can understand the difficulties when some wholesale changes for the greater good are in order. What I can't understand is that when these changes are needed that there isn't an 'all hands on deck' mentality with tech support when it comes to resolving the glitches that are certain to happen. The replies from the Yungster clan are very few and far between. Not good business. Not at all.

Piss poor planning, execution and administration.

Question Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Question
Any moderator looking please respond too

In the edit page it says it wants your current password 1. i have it already in there according to TAM

then ask you to change it by putting it in the first line the new one

in the second one it ask you to confirm it

I did that about four or five times. On the last one I put TAM and then words according to TAM not like i did the previous times. IT says six letters -lower case included.

I dont know what i am doing wrong and if it is because i havent received the email yet about the new password.

I cant remember my password that the TAM site is listing.

The thing is it keeps asking for a password each time I want to login and i have to get a temporary one each time in order to get in.

what am i doing wrong.

I do TAM ,then a word, then the number then symbol

Is not how i do taht?

Can someone give me step by step in instructions on how to do it without even use a real one?

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

If you are seeing dots that look like TAM is storing a password, delete those dots and then enter the temporary password you got in the email. That should take you to a screen where you can make up your own password.

Hi Judith,

This is the method if you are using the Classic skin or old format.

Get temporary password and go to >>> settings & options >>> edit email & password >>> in the top box enter your just issued temporary password >>> in the next box down enter the new password that you want to use(it's your choice what you want to enter as your new password,but make it hard enough) >>> in the next box down confirm your new password by entering it again >>> then scroll down and click on 'save'. You can log out from the temp and back in with new. That should do it.

If you are using the new full or alternate skin,then things are a little different. Enter your temporary password in the top box. The new password must be at least 10 characters that include symbols,numbers,lower-case letters and upper-case letters. Here's an example 27Gm&N4#pk When you make a password like this all the red X's should turn to green check marks. Then enter it again in the confirmation box. Go to bottom and save changes.

Your profile says you sometimes have difficulty being understood,but I hope this is what you're looking for and helps. If not,we can figure it out.

1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

By "unique to this community" he means that you only use that password here on TAM. Why? Because if you use the same password for all of your online accounts, then it is much easier for a hacker to get into all of your online accounts and steal your identity.

So use a unique password for TAM and for every other account you have anywhere on the web that needs a password.

You cannot just use an ancestor name.... Here are the rules for a new password.


Must be at least 10 characters
Must contain lower-case characters
Must contain upper-case characters
Must contain numbers
Must contain symbols

@EleGirl Are these two definite requirements? My previous was only 6 characters. My new one is only 8 and the temporary one was only 8 as well. No symbols in any of them.

My understanding is that there are now new rules for passwords to make them more complex and hence harder to crack.

The temp password I got was 12 characters long and fit the rules I posted above.

When I created my new password, the password function complained when I did not do all the things stated above. So when I created my new password, yes they were definite requirements.

I took that list off of the password change page that I see when I go into the control panel.

I wonder if the reason that people keep having passwords not become permenet is that they are not following the above rules when they create the passwords.. but there is a glitch in the password page they are using that allows passwords that do not follow the rules. But later the password validation when they try to re-sign-in balks at a non-compliant password... or some variant of this.

I don't know the above for sure as I do not have access to the forum software... but with years/decades of software testing under my belt, I'm getting the impression that this might be the problem from the complaints I'm reading here on TAM and elsewhere.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Thanks @EleGirl. You're probably right about them having some type of problem. When I entered my new password early yesterday,there was no notification that I wasn't following those parameters and I've logged back in 3 or 4 times since. Well,I guess we'll just have to wait and see what the next couple of days might bring. Thanks again.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

When I created my 10 character password, each of the red boxes requiring upper case and lower case and numbers and symbols became a green check as I went along. My temporary password wasn't 10 characters and didn't have all the requirements but it was temporary.

From my experience his morning, a 10 character password with all of the above requirements is necessary for a permanent password.

I didn't see red boxes and green checks when I changed my password through the User CP!? What the heck am I doing wrong,lol?

It sounds like there are different password screens depending on where they are accessed. If this is he case, then it's bad programming. There should be one password screen with supporting software that is used anytime a password is changed.

Here is the screen that I used to change my password.
