Glad you told us here, my first reaction to flags like that is to not trust them:)

Weird. Couldn't reset password with Chrome... Wouldn't send me email, gave me: "Error: either username or email must be specified for password request." With either email or username in the box.

Worked first try in IE.

Reset my password just fine on Chrome, no issues at all.

Mistakes happen :)

Cheers Mauricio; dealt with in a prompt and orderly fashion. Cheers for the transparency on what happened to by the way :)

Me too! Me too!  Meaning successfully changed my password using Chrome.  Reminds me of Mr Martin "It's the putting right that counts". Stuff happens, and I am sure we can remember that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realise "whoops".  Anyway all good and if people get upset about such things, well, I am glad I don't have their life.

There is a wee bug (IMO) in that if you *also* have your name in the login field, then clicking the send button does not send an e-mail.

Cloudy: Mine seems to still be working, just selected from my bookmarks and I'm in.


That's because you were on Geekzone before with the option to keep logged in. Your browser has a token that will keep it logged in. We do not store the password on cookies, so if you logout now then you will see your password is reset, like everyone's else.



Ah ok, might just log out now and reset anyway so I don't confuse myself in the future

Folks, here is an update...

We have restored passwords to their values on 4th March 7am. This means most of you don't need to change your password anymore. If you have changed your password, then continue to use the new password.

Sorry for the mass emailing...

Hmm... so all the folk (not me!) that put in a *new* password, will not work anymore, and will have their *old* password.

I only reset the password for those who have not changed yet. If you have changed your password, you can keep using the new one you entered.

Thanks for double-clarifying :)

Well, I'm *special* 'cuz I just logged in (username & existing password) without resetting anything.  Thanks for the email, though, it was nice hearing from you. Tongue Out

To stop this happening again your could create trigger that doesn't allow multiple passwords to updated in single update statement.

Something like this for table GZUser and column PwdHash:

create trigger tr_GZUser_UpdatePwd on dbo.GZUser for update
as
if update(PwdHash)
begin
if (select count(*) from inserted) > 1
rollback
end
go

Rather than following your instructions, I found it easier to just click on "Your Profile" then "Edit your Profile" and enter my new password there.

This only applies to users with cookies that are still alive (auto logged in)

I understand why you didn't mention this, as giving users too many options only complicates matters.

SQLGeek, thanks for the tip.

freitasm:
Technically? I was going to update one password but instead typed the command and pressed the EXEC button before finishing up the WHERE clause. That's not very technical...



Perhaps every SQL session should begin with SET IMPLICIT_TRANSACTIONS ON???   This is, after all, a prime example of why auto-commit is a bad idea!
