I don't doubt that many of my threads in other forums were richly illustrated as were those posted by many other carvers.
A lot of the pix were what we call process pictures, done so that others could see the steps taken from blank through roughout to finish.
Sometimes, a complex sharpening process for adzes and crooked knives. . . . those sorts of things.

Go back here in the Carving Forum and find "Frog Pie." I have more to add.

There are a lot of users that use the same password/email combinations on all their accounts. If this is the case for several users, it could be an issue. Which is why we're prompting all users to change their passwords. An email will be sent out soon to let all of them know to change it.

Before we do the password reset, we want all users to ensure that the email address associated with their account is correct and up to date. Password resets get sent through your email address, and if you no longer remember, or have access to the email address you registered with you will not be able to get back in. To change your email address, click here.

when?

I changed my password 2 weeks ago. Do I have to change it again now?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo

I did also Bill, the answer is yes, we will all have to change our password when we get the temporary password in our email.

They will send the temporary password to the email address you have in your profile, if your emaill address has changed you won't get the notice and will have to contact the Admin to get the temporary password to login.

Once we get the temporary password we can log in and change our password to what ever we want it to be. A combination of numbers, caps, small letters and symbols are the strongest for a password.

So--if I understand correctly:

1 .Temp password will be sent to my email.

2. I will use temp password to reset to a new password.

You will need to use the temp password to login, then you will need to go to your profile page and change your password to a new password of your choice.

bye

Sorry guys but this site doesn't need NSA level passwords. You ain't protecting the crown jewels here. Given that I'm challenged enough remembering simple passwords, I'll just skip using this site. plenty other easier sites out there.

best of luck to you...

I finally succeeded in resetting my password.....
The first one they sent me didn't work, so I
did a "forgot my password", and they sent me a new one..
Finally up, and running....
Pretty absurd requirements....

The temporary password was just to get you logged back in so that you could have access to choose your own password.

A good piece of advice, to help in remembering the more complex password, is to do a phrase instead of just randomly adding in the extra requirements.

Example: BoiledCabbageis#1!

That will stick in your in your mind better.

You can change it here or just let your browser remember it for you.

Done deal, changed passwords on Kia, WWT and Router, now DIY and I am all set.

Being able to talk with my friends here, it is well worth the little trouble changing a password, I guess some don't feel the friends they have here are worth the effort.

Hey BigJim ... what'd you change your password to?

<Grabbing pencil, ready to write information down>

Just joking, I hope you know.

Yeah, if anyone guesses mine ... I am going to start wearing aluminum foil on my head, because someone's reading my mind.

I never received an email with a temp password. I was able to reset it by clicking on the link in the message that pops up when I access the website though. Not sure why I didn't get an email without doing this.

Sometimes ISP will block automated emails, or they end up in the spam account. That is why I added the notice at the top, just in case.

I am glad you made your way back.

I don't see why people are upset about changing a password. The requirements for this forum aren't any different from any other password security on any other site. Upper case, lower case, letter, number, other character.
