I have been on this site since shortly after Jason started it with user ID "Jimmy". I'm not sure what anyone could get by stealing my password from here.
The password reset thing has failed me repeatedly. I use the temp PW and progress through the process and it likes everything until I get to last step and then tells me the password does not match the user ID.

I wonder how many others are locked out but haven't made up another user ID and registered again to get back in?

Your the second one I know of. Took me 3 days and countless times of using the links in emails. I just about gave up and quit this forum.

Well, I'm glad you didn't give up. I had no problems with this forum but the GTO forum (same ownership) made me pull my hair out.

So far my RV forum hasnt made anybody do anything. But it's not an AutoGuide forum.

I'm afraid to try logging into the Honda and Toyota forums.

Why would you want to do that? You don't have any rice burners, do you?

This forum was easy but another one that they own was a worse than a water torture. No matter what I did it would not accept any password and kept telling me that neither matched no matter what I did.

Then for some reason it took, but I did end up going back to the email and connecting through their link for about the tenth time to get it done.

I also just noticed that the problem that I was having inserting a thumbnail link into a post is taken care of. So other things were done when this password thing was implemented.

Not that it fixes the issue but it does me make feel better that I am not the only one that had the problem.
The first time I figured I missed a step, the second time I went through (and had to listen to a freakin' ad to get the captcha words!!) I thought maybe I made a typing error. The third and fourth times I copied/pasted, re-checked every typed entry, read the instructions carefully and it still didn't affect the PW change.

I quit then and sent a help request which has not been answered yet.

I will likely NEVER buy progressive insurance!!! They likely do not know their ad is used as a forced watch to get password reset but it still makes their stature in my mind fall to the bottom.

It's the weekend and I don't think that the owners are manning the offices. The same problems are going on with other forums that they own and no one is getting any responses for help other than from mods that can't do anything to help.

This has happened to me too. I've been flailing around for about 3-4 days, NOTHING seemed to work and we get NO response or advice from a moderator or administrator, I don't get it. I finally registered as a new member by adding a 1 after my screen name, got on, and stated the problem. No response from any administrator, but Chuckster57 finally helped me by way of a PM.

I also had to do the reset procedure as my current password was not taking... and if the administrator reset all passwords this is to be expected. The email links did work form me. I had similar problems on other forums because of this. Yes, the advertisements in the Re-CAPTCHA form are unnecessary and kinda insulting to be frank. I get advertising, but to stick it into a security form? :huh:

Hey Newbie - 3 whole posts, huh? I think I'd ask them to restore your old username once they get caught up with the password fiasco. I guess I could start a new one - maybe klhansen1 or RDG1 - and start knocking some heads around....:grin2:

Be nice now :grin2:

I had to scroll down to the bottom of the page (on the left side) and change from TheDieselStop.com (Full) to The DieselStop.com (Classic) before I could change my password so you guys are not the only ones to have issues. I'm sure that the Admins will be around soon but they have been very busy due to the password changes.

Not too much of a newby, I was on here a number of years when Jason first started this site up until 4 days ago with IIRC about 10,000 posts.
RDG, thank you for clearing up what the problem is. Personally it's nothing I can't live with now that someone (you) has finally explained it.

From what I understand on other forums that are having the same problem it is that your temporary password went to a email that you registered with and if you no longer use that email you'll have to wait for a admin. You might also want to check your spam folder for the email.

I gave up yesterday. Frames would freeze. I would you and the curser would not move. Three seconds later the curser is laying down letters and the letter keys light up by themselves while the words I typed appear behind curser.
Got email from Apple saying to change password as unauthorized use was detected at 11:45 last night( while asleep). I did that and decided to see if TDS was any better than yesterday. It was a repeat of yesterday. I finally got it.

Finally, after 6 failed password resets (using a different forum sent password each time) it worked!! Long time member but haven't posted for some time because I sold the 2001 F350, replaced by a 2014 F150.
