    Today when trying to log on a message poped up saying my password was so many days old and I needed to change it. Of all the years that I have been on stratics this was a first. I'm a bit concerned because it has never done that before. However, it would not let me to the site without putting a new one in.

    Is this something new that Stratics has? Or should I be concerned?

    Happened to me and many others. I think Petra mentioned something in a thread a while ago over the same issue. It's all dependent on how long the account has been active. Apparently mods have to do it more often then us though.

    If I remember right, it is once every two years for normal forum members. Since the "great crash" that led us to use the VBB forum system was in May of '08, a lot of members will be receiving this around now.
