I didn't even change it it was the same as before and I couldn't sign in?

Why did this happen?

I've had to reset the password now
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    This happened to me as well! I've had the same password for ages and not changed it and it just wouldn't let me in. (Yes i typed it correctly).
    Curious to know why this would happen??

    Hey guys,

    So... :blush:

    Turns out this was actually caused by my password manager. Basically, whenever I've been going to someone's profile in the back end of the boards, it's been updating the password for that account to the one I have saved for my account. For some bizarre reason it wasn't giving me a prompt so I didn't realise it was happening until now. :rolleyes:

    Apologies for the annoyance everyone - won't happen again!

    Mike, how dare you?!! Im sorry but it is funny
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.
