in thread Invalid Password

I didn't realise at the time that PM restricted passwords to 8 characters and gave myself a longer one. The characters come easily to my fingers, but if I put in the longer password, I can't log in. Before the week-end, I was able to. Are longer passwords now distinguished from 8 character ones? Something has certainly changed, but I see no Tidings on the subject.

    Even you seem to be able to log in successfully, which is what was "(fixed)". If you find it difficult to stop at 8 characters, then simply edit your profile and re-set your password (which will then be truncated at 10 characters, since that was also "(fixed)").
