    I had an issue with my computer recently which caused me to lose all my saved passwords. Trying to get back on here was a nightmare, nowhere could I find a password reset option.
    Twice I used the "contact us" form to request help. (I'm still awaiting a reply.)
    Finally I decided the only option was to re register and ask for help and then have the new account deleted.
    Voila! My email address was recognised and a password reset magically appeared.

    Is it just me missing something or is this the only way to get a new password?

    Sorry for the inconvenience boss. I am checking into the "contact us" reply form. We may have a broken link, as I did not see a notification when I tried that option. I'll look into it and get back to you.

    No problem mate, just be handy if there was a reset link on the homepage.

    Possibly this needs to be done by a mod for security reasons and keeping the site free from dudes like SOW from becoming the split personality he really wants to become. Same deal on harleydoods who want to come oot of the closet.

    Changing your password is fairly easy once you have signed into VFRW. At the top click settings. Down the left side under "my settings" to "Edit Email and Passwords". Did this quite recently.

    I misunderstood the question thinking it was "how to change password" and that's it. Was kinda wondering at the time if I was reading it wrong. Had a hell of a time uderstanding my grandparents with their Glasgow accent too. My bad...eh!

    But I am old so you know. You have to raise your voice about three octaves, speak like you do to a baby and be very loud. I have always bothered me when I saw people talking to seniors like that. They may be deaf or hard at hearing but they understand normal speech if it is louder, not higher tone.
