Can't log into my nation. I clicked "Forgot your password" and haven't gotten a response after 10 tries. Who hacked my password?!

Any help wouldbe greatly appreciated.

How did you log into the forums then? Isn't the password the same for both sites? :confused:

i got a new password via the nation "Forgot Password?" feature and that password doesn't work either. The forum password stays the same even if you change the nation password. The forum password only sets up when you click the proper links to set up a forum account and never changes.

How do I fix this?

Well, if you requested a new password 10 times, you'll need to be sure that you're using the most recently sent one.

It took about two hours for the last password to get emailed to me. This is a problem with two other nations I have. The password seems to keep changing on me.

I suspect it is a problem with the latest Firefox update as it has messed up two other boxes I am running in my sound studio.

I'll try again tomorrow to see if I have any other luck, but the passwords on all of my nations have changed and most of the email addys (because they seem not to resond after several hours requesting new passwords).

Let me see if anything comes in by the AM.

Who keeps changing the password to my nation? The password emailed to me last night no longer works. Now it doesn't even sent me a password when I request it.

This is getting strange.

1) If your password is being changed repeatedly, your e-mail address is probably insecure (someone may know the password to it, get your new one, then change it again). Change that password as well.

2) Having requested a password ten times in the past day or so, your e-mail account may be flagging the password sends as spam. Check your spam filters.
