    Account name hacked?

    Somehow, my username got changed, but not by me. I'd like my old username back, but I'd rather not have to wait half a year for that. Help?

    I have changed your username back. Make sure to change your passwords here and elsewhere as there are two high profile hacks you could've fallen victim to.

    Thanks! I changed my password as soon as I noticed, and is there a way to prevent this sort of thing from happening again?

    Don't use the same password on two site at once.

    I only post what I bought. My uploads are for those who share the same taste but could not easily import them. If you can buy the game, please do it to support the company.

    Also, find a better email provider.

    Re: Account name hacked?

    get yourself a password generator and use at least a 12 character password that uses upper/lower case numbers and symbols

    hope you guys don't mind me posting my tip since i'm not an admin but thought my idea was relevant

    Re: Account name hacked?

    Nope, not at all. While password strength may be a bit irrelevant in this case as there was a high-profile leak that could potentially allow attackers to gain unencrypted passwords—no bruteforcing necessary—using a password manager and generator is always a good suggestion that we also find ourselves recommending it over and over again. I personally like LastPass and KeePass, but there are others, too.
