    Good work, Hilbert!
    I'm a bit lazy about changing passwords regularly, in spite of reading many horror stories about life on the internet.

    Just for the hell of it, how big can you make passwords on this site anyway? I know 20-something characters is the norm for most sites, maybe 30-something. Google allows 100 max.

    Another password change required? Mine said it's 30 days at this point (which I don't think it was?) and was mandatory to change.

    Same here.... Just asked to change my password. Did you enable the password policy by accident or it is now required to change password every now and then?

    Whoops ! I configured the password change timeout at 30 days when we had the vulnerability to enforce you guys all the change the PW. But I forgot to alter it back to a normal time-frame.

    Sorry guys, this has now been altered to once a year.

    I think it was more to find out if there was a new policy requiring PW changes ever month. If nobody questioned, how would admin discover the reset was set to 30 days?

    If it improves site security....what's there to complain about? It only takes a few seconds to change your password. Not like doing so is the end of the world.

    Guess Iam way way below normal since it take me more than a few second just to think up a new password.
