I may be incorrect, but assume much of what you mentioned are decisions made at an executive level.

The line staff administration team (Yunster) are tasked with executing, deploying, and implementing solutions in the most expedient manner possible thereafter. I can appreciate the pressure they're working under.

They started the massive password change on June 15. The first post on this thread was made on 6/14.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Just a comment...

Requiring special characters such as "!@#$%^&*" is a horrible idea when it comes to phone users. Many phone keyboards have layered keyboards (alpha on one layer, numbers and some characters on the second and other characters on the third) and these don't necessarily line up with a qwerty keyboard.

I understand the need for harder passwords but since there isn't much identifying info (actual names, ssn's, addresses) on TAM a less strong password should be permitted.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Thank you for your feedback, for now that is what is implemented. We can always revisit this option in the future.

Thank you

I assume the fix was implemented across their entire network, not just TAM.

IDK, your email address and IP address were revealed, along with your TAM ID. So I guess a good hacker could identify you? Maybe I got the details wrong.

BTW, whatever platform you are using on your phone to read TAM can save the password. I use both Tapatalk and Chrome on my iphone and both save the password so I do not have to type it every time. I just protect the phone itself with passcode.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

We have taken traditional precautions to protect the site, this is why we ask you all to change your password, I can understand that it may require it to be lengthy, However we can also revisit this change in the future. Please send me a PM if you are having issues with your account.

Thank you.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

A prominent poster prior to the password debacle, @marduk, has not been on since the changeover.

I don't know if you have any means to reach out to him. His join date was way back in 2010, so he may not have the same email address.

Thanks.

Thanks.
IIRC he was undergoing a "transformation", so maybe check the Ladies Lounge
