News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Actually, I did mean dot. I tried a string of two words with two numerals between, the first word having a capital and the second followed by an exclamation mark, and sundry variations on that theme. Nothing doing, the query symbols remained against all attempts.

Then I tried an old car registration of mine in the format R123abc. (note the dot!): bingo, instant success.

I was going to say that I never used a "dot" (or should that be a full stop?) in my password. Nothing annoys me more than the idiotic use of "dots" between words or initials where they're not needed. Getting grumpy with old age.... :)

otis, I think that Nemo meant "Doh!".   There is no specific dot or full stop rule relating to setting up a password on the new site.
I think you need at least 8 characters, at least 1 upper case letter, at least one lower case letter, and at least one number. e.g. Password3

Please can someone explain the password "dot" thing? I'm still unable to get in.

My confirmation email went into my junk folder. It took me 3 days to think to look in there :-)

Sad to say it appears to reject all passwords from me! May try again tomorrow.

Stuart. I have a problem login in. My daughter cannot help with my problem, as her mother need her.
The only solution I can find is ` delete my account, then I can re-apply, using different user & password `.
I hope you read this Stuart.

Thank you for that reply Stuart. I find the ` where is it ` is better for me, on the new site.
I often, could not see any photo`s, on this one. ( old equipment ? )

When i can log in again, I would like to have my same Avatar -- on your site.
I could not see, where I insert it .

A number of those 'looking in' will be search engine bits feeling their way around the site. I have no problem with that, those bots basically read the posts and index the words so that people putting those key words into their search engine will see stuff on the forum.
