in reply to It's Time for Everyone to Change Passwords!

All of the published passwords have been changed. Most of the parties involved have been e-mailed about this (still fighting anti-spam measures to get the remaining e-mails out) both at their prior e-mail address and their new e-mail address (if their e-mail address was recently changed).

Sorry, I've spent a lot of time working on this already and don't have time to compose a long notice about details or plans, most of which have been published by other people already anyway.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

    I looked through a bunch of the posts, and did not see the issue brought up or addressed, but what if my email was changed a while back and I never got around to updating it on perlmonks as I don't frequent the site very often anymore. It has obviously been changed.

    So without being able to know which email it went to, and not being able to change the email it should go to, what is my next step, if i don't wish to create a new account.

    Looks like I am one of the affected and the email got lost. Could you try to send it again to my CPAN email once you have a moment? No rush. I'm not sure what, if any, email address do I have on file on Perlmonks.

    Thanks, Jenda@CPAN.org

      Got it, thanks!

    I've been effected and the password retrieval tool either doesn't seem to be working or my email address has been changed. No biggie. Could you email my new password to "will at silent11 dot com" or Direct Message me using the twitter handle located on my profile page?

    Thanks.

      Disregard the above message. If the crackers hadn't of posted everyone's email address I wouldn't have know what address to send my new password to.

    Thanks for that, and also for the fact that the page that does "send a password reminder for my perlmonks account to my email address" worked just fine.

    I'm glad to be back.
