Does nobody write down their passwords? :scared: Might be easier to hide a scrap of paper from roommates than lines of code from a hacker. My dad avoids both by remembering neither! Treats passwords as a one-time access and then gets mad when he can't use his Amazon account... or log in to his computer. lol

I try to change passwords every year or so on higher security places or just sites that are important to me like blogs and here. I like my system of typing in whatever gibberish noise pops into my head (should be somewhat foolproof unless I have a twin out there speaking the same gobbledygook), though I have begun to use more numbers and characters since watching Doctor Who episodes. "It's like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey... stuff" is too close for comfort. :uhoh: :P

But yeah, the more random your password looks, the better you'll be. Use that shift key and/or character map as often as possible! If you can scribble it down somewhere safe, there's that much more room to be unintelligible without triggering memories that other folks can guess. Image

Yes, I used what special characters I could. (What is that called again? Duh. I know this!) And there are numbers.

And, yes, I sometimes write them down. I actually had a rather elaborate coding system to write my passwords down in code, but I sort of gave up on that.

Since I mostly log on from work, I prefer to have memorized passwords. The easiest semi-secure ones for me to remember are sentances all run together with punctuation. But the website host wouldn't let me do just that. :( When I told my husband the password later at home, he said that would certainly be one he'd be writing down! :LMAO: At home it doesn't matter about having a password list. At work, people walk through my office all the time and/or use my computer when I'm gone to lunch. The only safe place to keep a password there is in my head.

It's still doing it to me. I changed my password a few weeks ago, although I seldom log out.

Twice this past weekend I did log out and both times when I tried to log in I got that message. :rage:

Another thing: sometimes I decide I want to insert a smiley after I finish typing but before I post. So I put the cursor where I want the smiley and click on the smiley and it goes to the END of the post, and that's just INCREDIBLY irritating. Why does it do that? It doesn't happen anywhere else but B77.

There is another little site I visit now and again and I can't remember my password there, I went through the routine of "forget your password?" and got a new one and it still ain't lettin' me log in. I wish I could, there's a friend there I don't see anywhere else and I guess I'll never be able to talk to her again. :( I can't PM this person - cuz I can't log in!!!

I don't have problems with smilies here. HoF is the site that annoys me with inserting the smilie at the end instead of where I have my cursor. Strange that you have the problem here instead! :scratch:

I don't know what to tell you about the other issues. :(

The smilie inserts in the right spot for me in firefox. Are you using IE?

Regarding the other issue, does the other board have a Contact address?

I use IE, Jude, and I found the same problem with the smilies here as vison, but I don't remember having that problem on HoF.

Aha. And I use Firefox and don't have a problem here but have the problem at HoF.

Jude may have solved the mystery! :D

Don't we have rules about those kind of people here?

Well, I think everyone should switch to Google Chrome! It is hands down the best browser I've ever used. I even get annoyed when I have to use Firefox for something now. :P
