the feature to let us change our passwords ourselves does not seem to be working anymore.
i can do it for you if you send me an email telling me what you want your new password to be.

please note that i do not retain passwords.
once i change it the system will not show it to me again.

if you can't change it yourself in the UserCP you can send me an email.

the system now requires strong passwords. if you are creating a new password in the UserCP, keep the following in mind:

We consider a strong password to be one that is unique to the forums and not used by you elsewhere online. Our passwords require the following:
  • A minimum of eight (8) characters
  • At least one (1) lowercase letter
  • At least one (1) uppercase letter
  • At least one (1) number
  • At least one (1) of the following special characters: @ # _ $ % ^ & ! ~ ? *


We also recommend the following for your password:
  • Do not include personal information such as your birthday, date of birth, or address in your password.
  • Avoid commonly used words like "password" or the name of the website.
  • Do not use sequences such as "abcd", "123", "asdf", "jkl" or "qwerty".

I use the computer a lot. I teach online. That said I am only moderately skilled with how computers and systems work. I know what I need to know to teach and little more. Your issue may be because of protections on your computer (desktop or laptop). It sounds like it may be trying to keep your information safe. I sometimes experience unusual changes when there are updates from Microsoft. Keep at it, and welcome back to the QB . Yes, keep a list of your passwords in what ever form that works for you just in case anything happens to your computer.

I finally figured out the problem. I was trying to change my password on my phone, but I couldn't see "UserCP" from there. I could change it with my laptop. Thanks, PatriceJ!
