    Sigh another week and another password to change. Glad I use a unique password for every site these days; it saves the hassle of changing passwords on multiple sites after every security breach.

    Just so people know, you get 300 gold if you change your password today, so you might as well as.

    It was most likely forum security breach - forum has been inaccessible every now and then over the last couple of days. Since WG uses same password for forum and game and thanks to ridiculous password restrictions (non-alpha characters are not permitted ??!) it is reasonable to expect that there will be further security breaches in the future.

    I wish they would let me use special characters. It's really frustrating when websites do that. Especially banks or any website which holds financial data on you. At least they don't restrict you to 8 characters.

    And thanks for the tip rici1241! Never bought gold before, probably won't use it but nice anyway.

    Can't log in at the moment. It just hangs, so I guess I'll have to wait - anyone else getting this problem.

    Every six months when they publish the list of the 10 most common passwords I email them to the missus and get her to change...
