Forum Login Now Requires Email Address
Due to recent advances in forum hacking techniques, it can no longer be considered good practice to use a publicly visible user name to log in to public forums. User names are easily obtained by simply browsing the forum and can then be used to launch massive brute force attacks on the forum in question.
Because most of our forum members have been using their visible user name to log in, we have changed the login method for all users. As of 2011-04-10 you are required to use your email address to log in. If you have forgotten your email address you will not be able to log in. Your password is the same as before.
Note that the email address is your registered email address. You can check your registered email address in My Controls -> Change Email Address -> Your current email address to make sure it is up-to-date. If you wish to change your registered email address, please read the following post.
TL;DR, from 2011-04-10 on you need to log in using your email address.
