security advice

have you been a member of this site for a long time?

did you join in 2007? okay were you a member of the old phpBB2 forums that we ran when the site started?

if YES then please make sure that you have CHANGED your password since then

you must not have the same password that you had when you joined the forums back in 2007

if you joined the forums since mid 2008 then you are simply asked to ensure that you have a password that includes numbers, upper case and lower case characters, make sure you have a "DECENT PASSWORD"

if you are a member of both the phpBB2 site AND this site (phpBB3) then the passwords to each site must NOT be the same
