Hi, this is BA.
Today I brought up my same old Firefox browser on the same old laptop and it would not log in. I made a dozen or so attempts using my common passwords and the last one I remember for this site to no avail.

I cleared the cache of the browser AND tried a different browser as well. Still no luck.
I wasn't prompted for a password reset to the new format, is it possible that my ID is now hung up due to its' old-standard password?

Need help -

Have you checked your e-mail lately. The Admin reset every ones passwords. You will need to save that assigned password, at least temporarily, to a document using your favorite word processor (Text Editor is a full version of Microsoft Word without Templates or Dictionaries so you already have at least one word processor application).

They, the admins, wrote a 'bot that randomly generated a new secure password and erased your old one. The new rules state that you can no longer have words (as recognized by a spelling checker) as part of your password, and it need upper and lower case letters as well as at least one special character (for you old schoolers ASCII Code above 128) to be acceptable as a password.

Aha, thanks Dave and Larry.

I did not see an email about password updating - seems the source domain went into Hotmail Spam folder: [email protected]

I was just now able to take that last PW reset and use it to reset my BA. password and it looks like I'm good to go again.

Thanks for the help!
