Re: Things I don't like about this forum

I just joined today but what I didn't like was what I believe to be the overly restrictive password requirement: At least 6 characters, at least one uppercase, lowercase, number, and no repeats anywhere. I wanted to make it like some of my other passwords so that I could remember it but no dice. I know it is not as secure to do it like that but it's a forum. Maybe a new laptop with a fingerprint reader and some password management software will make it easier.

tatelsh, welcome to the forum,


thanks for your comments. It's always difficult trying to decide a correct and secure password format that fits everybody's requirements / habits.

I confess to not liking it either, but have developed a system for sites that have such password requirements. A possible example which fits the requirements; pw = "holiday" will be converted to "hol1Day". I have a word which is easy to remember, one letter is written in capitals and one letter is substituted by a number.


Hope this helps
