    I have to use the password that you guys give me after i reset it, because if i change the password that was sent to me and make me a new one, when i try login it says password is incorrect and yes i did this 3 times. So i have to use the sent password.

    If it keeps looping for you just let me know the email address you like to use and gimme a pass and I'll manually insert it for you (please do this through PM obviously).

    At least all your reviews are intact, HH, unlike Looby who lost his thousand word Man of Steel review in the pub. Poor Looby. :(

    Good news / bad news.
    I'll wait with you to hear whose mod acct was hacked. The bad, too bad about lossing a months worth of post, but I guess the flip side would be some members lost a months worth of accumulated infractions. Member banned within the last month, card time outs, now all is forgiven.

    Well that was dumb, the system completely forgot what my password was changed to. What a hassle.

    Gotta say, although i know things like this do happen on occasion, to see it happen to Guru3D is very disappointing, i expected it to be more secure being the type of site this is.

    Disappointing indeed, let's hope this does not happen again.

    It's a website that offers reviews on the latest PC hardware, it's not a NSA website. What sort of security are you expecting?

    I have to log into KeePass with my 16 bit mega huge password and generate a new 8 bit one for this site, so yeah, it kinda is.

    Damn it's like I never existed! How many posts did you need to get into the buying/selling part of the forum? I only had like 50 or so before my account got erased lol!
