| | [SOLVED] Admin-types, please read this ASAP
I've sent this message to Justin in a PM, but in case he does not see it right away, I decide to also post it here.
I'll get right to it. I created a thread with the title - How big is YOUR Pass word? :-)
I know, I am very sorry. How was that.
If you read it you will see, I meant no harm by this post. I simply notice that it was possible to put up to 20 digits in the password line on the WW logon and posted a picture of how many * that would look like. It's 20, btw.
Well, the problem now is too many of our "little kinz" seem to be skipping the real reason for the post and picture and don't at all get the rhetorical nature of the "question." Sadly they seem to be posting, in some cases, at least, the exact number of digits in their password. This may be a harmless thing, but it does concern me.
Mutt and I have discussed this concern openly on the thread, and I posted a warning to stop posting pw info, but who knows when the next poster will post without checking every reply and post just the wrong bit of info.
I would like anyadmin to please lock or delete or do whatever you guys need to to keep WI safe and vital info from getting into the hands of any "evil hacker-types" that might prey on these all-to-trusting "little kinz."
I am sorry for creating this post and I would clean up my own mess if i had some way to edit my own post, but I am just too green with this particular board.
At the very least, please check it over and edit the posts where too much info has been given.
Sorry to be the cause of any trouble. btw - I am going to give Mutt a rep point. If I had any I ask you to demote me of them.

Looks like someone finally deleted it.
And I just used the search engine to try and find it. Is is really gone? I hope so.
:: sigh ::
I'll go stick my nose in a corner and think about how foolish I've been.

Okay. Good. It IS gone. < had to poke around my User Control Panel to learn this >
And now I know exactly what I need to do. I am going to reread the rules section again.
ALL OF THEM THIS TIME!!!
This may take a while so I may not post for a bit. I'm a slow reader. It's the old eyes mixed with Bi-focal type glasses. They don't make for easy reading on a PC screen.
