Dear all,

Quite a lot of members have been receiving an email in the past week stating their account got blocked as a result of multiple failed login attempts. The email also states that when this is not caused by yourself, you should contact the board admin.

We're currently looking into this matter and will keep you informed here. If it makes you feel more safe, you could change your password. On the other hand, the bots are failing to log in all the time. If you wish to change your password, be sure to pick a combination of digits and characters and not a simple word, initials or anything like that.

I have a few people looking into it right now, and that's all I can say for the moment.

Please do not email and/or PM me unless you have a specific/personal question...

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

I have only changed my password once. Once should be enough.

Kanta, changing your password does nothing because I changed mine on Saturday and got another email today.

As long as you change it to something secure & something only you would know you should be safe.
The account is being blocked because these bots or whatever were not able to guess your password & tried to login unsuccessfully.
