    Default Password policy: good + strong passwords

    Hi guys,

    I really recommend to use good/strong passwords, which should be:

    Password:

    has at least 15 characters;
    has uppercase letters;
    has lowercase letters;
    has numbers;
    has symbols, such as ` ! " ? $ ? % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = { [ } ] : ; @ ' ~ # | \ < , > . ? /
    is not like your previous passwords;
    is not your name;
    is not your login;
    is not your friend's name;
    is not your family member's name;
    is not a dictionary word;
    is not your mail address;
    is not a common name.
    From: strongpasswordgenerator.com, you can use this password generator: http://strongpasswordgenerator.com

    I really recommend not using one password for different sites! Only one password for one website.

    I decided to change the password policy on this forum:

    For registered users you must change your password after 100 days (and it must be different than your previous password).
