Forum "password recovery" is not a recovery


Recommended Posts

Short version: Please change the wording in your password reset process so it doesn't say "password recovery".

Long version: After getting the email this morning about needing to change passwords, I tried to log in to do so. I haven't visited the forums in...probably over a year, so I wasn't sure what password I had used. After trying a few and failing, I decided to use the "password recovery" option. After following the steps, I got a message that I should receive my new password in an email. Now I have no way of knowing what password I had used and thus have no idea what sites/services I need to change my password for. If the link had said "password reset" instead of "password recovery", I would have kept trying different passwords until I figured out which one was used here.
