    Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

    Hello Everyone,



    Per the latest announcements we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. Shortly you should be receiving an email directing you how to change your password. It will look like this:



    Subject: Your new password for *site name*
    Dear *username*,

    Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:

    Username: *username*

    Password: *Randomly generated temp password*

    To change your password, please visit this page: *link to password reset edit page from USERCP*

    If you suspect this email is a scam, you can confirm the legitimacy of this email by manually navigate to the forum URL yourself and use your new password to log in.

    All the best,

    Site Name


    As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to updated it accordingly.

    If you do not receive this email please go to the contact us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues

    We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

    I just had to update mine and it took me three tries before I figured out how to make the temporary one work. It had a control character in it so my first two unsuccessful attempts were trying to type it in as it appeared. No go. Copying it and pasting it into the log in window worked the third time though. I thought everyone should be aware of this potential "got ya". I was then able to create a new password that satisfied the current minimum requirements, which coincidentally are the same as every other sites are these days.
    Whether or not anyone else gets a temporary password with a control character or not, there's still opportunities for misinterpreting certain characters so save yourselves from these potential problems by just copying it from the email, clicking the link to update it, then first enter your user name, paste your temporary password into the "old" password box and then creating your new password.
    Then log out and clear your old CelicaSupra.com login information from your computer however is required unless you prefer manually logging in every time. Then open your browser and go to CelicaSupra.com again. You'll be asked to enter your user name and password. Do so and then select "remember me" if desired and you're done.

    If this new password system stays I will not be returning to the site ever again, I don't think anyone's accounts at celicsupra.com are in jeprody of being hacked or broken into...

    My password was fine and I liked it. I don't need f*ing symbols, capitals and ten damned digits... Give me a break like really.....
    my bank doesn't require this much BS and frankly I don't want to type in a password this long every time...
    And for what !?!?!?!? My OH SO PRECIOUS celicsupra.com account???? Get real here...

    If there's been no known hack, or attempts, the change seems somewhat odd.
    Lastpass means it doesn't cost me any effort though.

    If we're worried about the potential of passwords being compromised, why is there no SSL on this site admin?
    You do know you will Blacklisted by Google for anyone using the Chrome browser here very soon right?

    Is there any way we could cut some of the crap on this? this isn't a NASA forum. I don't keep CC info on here. I've always been fine with a 6 digit basic ass password. This ten character crap with symbols and stuff is a little too much

    I had the same password for 11 years and was never hacked. And even if I was, big whoop honestly

    I was on one of my other forums this week and noticed mention of problems logging on, password reset ect... Doesn't really bother me if they want to have Fort Knox security here however, the thing I don't like is navigation sending me to the bottom of pages.
