Can someone explain the discrepancy. Does this mean Moderators and members of the RT need to change passwords every 180 days but regular members once a year?

2) Your passwords will expire on a 180 day basis. When you login on the 181st day, you will have to change it. You guys and girls all have the highest level of access in our communities and this will help protect your accounts.

All other users on the community will have 365 day expirations. We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

I have to admit, I'm really not a fan of this idea, I get the reason, but it just seems like too much of a pain, especially having to come up with a new password each year.
Question: I just logged in today, and changed my password, I got an email with my new one earlier today, and logged on with that and changed it to something that I could remember. I'm not too sure if I'm misunderstanding or not, but will my password change again? I'd like to keep my new one.

sorry guys, but i'm not that impressed by the new site, it stills revamped car site. you haven't even tried to fix that, and there is less action on this site now.. the breeder section cannot be viewed without logging in and i really feel that this 'security' issue is bs. i'm logging out for the last time.... thanks for the past, but i'm not contributing my logs, findings or anything else here anymore... (not that i contributed that much to start with)...
i'm deleting everything i've posted (or at least gonna try) and my user page.... it's a shame because your dot com name has potential, but these new restrictions are nonsense.
maybe you'll run into me somewhere else, but not here anymore.

These restrictions and password resets are ridiculous I am all about security but not even amazon or my bank have anything this extreme!

Honestly I feel like this inconvenience of having such a difficult password will only become more annoying as time goes on because I feel like I'm not the only one who will absolutely forget their password more than once.

Also everyone getting the same email from some pufferfish website we've never been to is incredibly concerning and seems like a breach of privacy or a serious oversight as either this website has given out everyone's email or falsely sent everyone an email about a site we've never been to.

My bank has less security then this!
Its going to be super easy to forget a password that I have to reset so often. And don't anyone dare tell me to write it down! That's the easiest way for someone to gain excess to my accounts.

Edit: There is absolutely no reason to have this much security, we are not hiding confidential information, credit card or bank account numbers. Be nice to your members, get rid of a few of these rules.

Must be at least 10 characters (if we need all of the following, why make it so long?

Must contain lower-case characters
Must contain upper-case characters <- easiest to go wrong when typing in

Must contain numbers
Must contain symbols <- just plain annoying

Be the Better you.

Symbols seem a little over-the-top, I've never heard of needing those in a password before.

This is stupid, this is a piddly little forum with absolutely NO personal information. This excessive security is pure bollocks! If you feel you need to put that kind of security on it to where I have to keep a list of passwords here and type in some crazy long cryptic password to log in I feel I'm done here. It's a crying shame because I liked this forum. I may be back but the visits will few and far between, that is if I can remember then dang password.

Why is it such a hassle to change a password? I bet the people complaining use 1or 2 passwords for everything including email, These same people probably still use the default log in to their routers,

As for having to type the password in every time try a password manager, or save it to as plain text and copy n paste, or if you realy want to have your browser remember it.
