For the past four weeks I have been following the forums and using the site to educate myself. However, twice now I've had to recreate this account. Am I doing something wrong? One day it asks me to login and my account 'username or password is invalid'. I have my username and password saved into Chrome. I recreate the account with same name and email and everything works fine???

I haven't been posting... Does that make a difference??

Thanks. Love the community and the site.

Yes I beleive the sitaution is as stated by OEF. We have had many bots sleep dormante and then get activated and spam the forums. So in an action to prevent this we are doing sweeps for accounts that have 0 posts for a certain amount of time we delete.

 

We understand that this is an inconvience for some. However to have an forum with less Spam, I am sure many would agree that it is the for the good of the community.

 

I hope you understand.

 

Thansk for the support and hope to see you here more often.
