Idea: Forgotten Password/Username system.
Date: January 2012
Suggested by: cooljdude
Defined by: cooljdude, iolite, jader201
Claimed by:
Release expected: Unknown

Outline: Currently, when someone forgets their password there is help below the Login button where it says ''Forgot your password? Click Here and we will email you a new one. Once clicking the link a new password is emailed to the email account associated with the username. There are two issues with this. Firstly, the person attempting to log in may have not remembered their username correctly, and secondly any person can reset any other Member's password. Although Modmins can see who asked for the password to be reset it is time consuming to chase this up.

The idea here is to change the current system to allow Members to retrieve their username and change their password via a link emailed to them. This will also prevent malicious password resets.
