NEW PASSWORD 20 MAY 2013
« on: May 18, 2013, 07:11:52 pm »
The Zooniverse team are sorting out some back end security fixes to the forum which means that you will need to change your password to access the forum from Monday 20 May 2013. Follow the link on the forum on Monday to change it. Everything else remains the same. :)

You will need to do this to access all the "standard type" fora: Moon Zoo, Galaxy Zoo, Solar Stormwatch and Old Weather.

All my Zooniverse passwords were the same 6-character string but the Galaxy Zoo forum now demands a password of 8-characters or more so I now longer have a single logon password for the Zooniverse!

That got me too! Yes the process wasn't as smooth as it could have been but at least we will end up with a more secure forum. Us mods also now have access to special buttons to keep spammers at bay and generally keep things tidy. 8) ;D
