Does anyone else experience this.....
Well ... tried for two days to get logged on. This website keeps resetting my password like ever 45 days. It's almost like it locks me out also. I have to do the reset password still doesn't work. I go into my office and try it there on Monday and it lets me in. And no I know my password, it's my daughters middle name. Last time it was her first name. That worked for a month or two, then I cannot log on. Reset it a few times, then it takes. I go into the settings and change it and it works about 45 days it seems.

and I try to email Axiom but get webpage doesn't exist

My password has been stable for 4 years & I click on their 'email' & it works fine.

I'm using a Chrome derivative browser...

No problems here either with Firefox and Chrome.

Perhaps someone has your two passwords and they are changing it to their own. Not sure why though as they obviously are not using your account for board spam or anything. Try using a totally new password (non-family related) instead of recycling the older ones. If someone is toying with you, they can continue to do so as long as you continue to recycle old passwords they already know.

It's unlikely, but a fresh password never hurts.

Also, not telling people what your password is (or is even like) in association with your account in a public forum might help.

Dictionary attacks with information like that are extraordinarily trivial.

Troy, I think your daughter may be continually changing her middle name just to "gaslight" you.

Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

Yeh I know ....but thing is who the heck wants to crack my Axiom forum password.
And until now I never mentioned it would be her name or middle. Actually no one would even guess here.
Also, it is a name that we basically created so not in a dictionary. Also I do use a special character and numbers.
