Per the announcement 'Password and Security Update' we will be resetting everyone’s passwords. On Tuesday you should be receiving an email directing you on how to change your password. It will look like this:
Subject: Your new password for *site name*
Your password has been reset by an administrator. Your new details are as follows:
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,
As you can see it will give you a randomly generated temporary password, as well as telling you where you need to go to update it accordingly.
Please take this time to visit your User CP settings and ensure you have a current and valid email address on file, as this is the address that the reset will be sent to.
Some email providers tend to put our communication in to spam folders, or sometimes even directly in to trash, so please check all of your folders for this email on Tuesday.
If you do not receive this email please go to the Contact Us page and select Other, and type in Security Password Update Issues. Please include your username, and the email that is associated with that account in order to speed up your requests.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
