The board has been hit lately by spambots that are trying to 'force guess' users' passwords. This is why you may see the 'you've exceeded your login attempts' message when trying to log in. Because of the password requirements they shouldn't be able to get into anyone's account, but it's still a pain in the butt.
Tonight I'm going to try to install a mod that will hide the member list unless you're logged in, which should keep spambots from scooping up usernames. In the meantime, where it says Question when you try to log in, it's asking for the answer to the following question: "Which Sam species has wings, pure black eyes, a head mane, and a tufted tail?" Please don't post the answer here, I don't want it being scooped up by the spambots XD
