The Forums were taken offline recently. When they returned I found that I had to reset my password. This may have happened to others, hence the very small number of recent postings. Resetting takes time and one has to contend with the wretched 'strength measurer' which, it seems, can only be satisfied with completely unmemorable jumbles of characters.
Are mods aware of this problem? Does the forum software put up a flag when it has made passwords invalid? If it doesn't, this is yet another reason to look for an alternative.
