A little more advance warning would be nice next time. I was out of the house most of the day, and didn't see notice of this until it was a done deal.

We made a post on Monday in the Site Updates thread and made several posts throughout the week on Facebook and Twitter.

Since the password reset, and after changing to a compliant password (8 Character, mix of alpha and numeric) I can no longer access any of the pages on the "NEWS" section, or the link above. For example, the link above, when clicked, gives me the following message:

TheFoo, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

I believe I've done what was requested. Please advise.

Give it a try now. You should be good to go.

My IP address for my computer was banned when I tried to do this. All I need to do was to change my password.

I too am having that problem, I can't change my e-address-- clicking 'Save Changes' does nothing.
{btw, I have not changed my password; I have kept the one given by the global reset.}

How exactly did you 'sort it out'??

Is this what you see?

If so you should enter your present (temp) password and then change your email beneath. If you're keeping the temp password then no need to add anything to the Edit Password section.

Thanx Q2 - yes, that's the page. It's not working for me: I put the {temp} password - which I plan to keep (unless I have to change it :? ) - I did NOT edit that password; put my new e-address; click 'Save Changes', and absolutely nothing happens. I have turned OFF adblocking, NoScript, Greasemonkey, and even hostfile blocking. Can I Reply to the global reset email, and request my address be updated by an admin?

Nothing has come through. Alright... send us an email at fe [at] fanedit [dot] org with the same info and see if that works. Sorry for the delay but for security we need to ensure the email addresses match up, so be sure to send the email from the address currently listed in your profile.

I changed my password at the same time.

Come to think of it that might be why. The new requirements are uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers. If you're leaving it the same it might be seeing there are no letters and not letting it take. Something to consider.

Hmm, was wondering why I couldn't get onto this site in the last while.
