Agreed. Why? This isn't exactly a site containing highly sensitive information? Why the need to reset our passwords?

I don't have any questions, but the announcement is making all text bold where it appears.

^^^^ Well, SOMETHING is making all text bold, in SOME sections/threads.

So at least I know it's not just me.

Did you edit your password too?
Note to only enter your password in the top section where it says "enter your present password to continue" and ignore the edit password section.

Current and up to date are redundant.

I seem to have lost my membership staus when I reset my password.

I can log in and post, but I'm seeing ads and I don't get a yellow jersey icon.

according to the CP, my membership id active and paid until July 2021.

I did change my email when I redid the password if that matters

Hi thinktubes,

I have checked your account, you should have your premium membership level working again.
Let me know if the issue persists!

Hi IBanna,

the issue is still there.

I've logged in and out and tried a couple of different platforms/devices.

Hi thinktubes,

Your platinum level was reset to registered after I changed it, I changed it back to titanium level. It should be fixed now.

Even with healthcare reform, you could keep your current password if you wanted to. Not with BF??

UPDATE


We have decided to not go on with the forced password change. With the security measures we have now, it had been deemed unnecessary for the forum.


Bike Forum will continue on as usual! Thank you for your understanding!

I never got the word, changed mine. OK, then got a need-to-confirm e-mail and I answered that. Well, I had paid for a Premium membership recently and the ads went away. Now, they are back... how do I fix that? They are gagging my computer, I was getting "this webpage uses too much memory" messages, etc. Is there a setting somewhere that can be changed?

Hi tiger1964,

It seems your premium membership was reverted to regular membership when you changed your email. I have fixed the issue. You should have all of your premium membership privileges now.

Thank you - the ads seem gone, at least for now.
