Update, 2020/12/01
Please see announcement in Forum Stuff for details.

Today, 2020/11/18, suspicions have been expressed that there has been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.
While the facts behind those suspicions have not yet been established, your Administerrerr is treating them as credible. He is looking into this. He will try and beef up security.
Even if you did so only recently:
Please change your password!
Please click here, or use the menu ( button) to navigate to the the User Control Panel, therein to the Profile Tab, and there click Edit Account Settings. You should get it from there on.
For a safe password that will resist brute-force attempts (which we have been subject to in the past), please use upper and lower case letters, AND numerals, AND symbols, and make it as long as you feel feasible. 16 characters seems to be recommended these days.
DO NOT use a password you also use elsewhere.
While your Administerrerr tries to keep this place safe. Get real. Security here is mostly by obscurity, that is, no one serious enough to crack us like a rotten egg is likely to even bother. But if one does, you don't want the safety of your email of facebook or whatever to depend on one mostly blind, mostly clueless autodidact who can't work at this more than a few hours at a time, if that much.

If you used a password here that you also used elsewhere, you must set a new password there, also!
A different password, this time. If someone did breach us, the first thing they are likely to do with your login credentials is to try them out elsewhere. Login credentials compromised here are compromised everywhere else, also. If you did reuse a password, but with a different email, your administerrerrerr strongly urges you NOT rely on that different email keeping you safe. This whole thing runs on a database. That means your half-blind administerrerrerr can operate a database. Do you honestly think identity thieves, and those who sell them passwords by the ten-thousands, won't?
If you get an error message about an invalid form, click here.
Every form you can debauch is on a time limit. Even if you feel you've been reasonably quick, some browsers seem to think otherwise.
Recommendation: type your password in something like a text editor or word processor, highlight (making sure not to highlight any leading or trailing spaces), copy, then reload the account settings page, paste, paste, debauch, and be all quick about it. Like Dan said, back in the when. Be like the housefly, and see the events of the world unfold in liquid slowness, or something to that effect.
If you cannot reset a forgotten password, click here.
The "I forgot my password" function has been buggy for a while, I apologize. I will look into that, also, over the next few days.
UPDATE: I have looked into this. I think it should work now, but I can't test it all with my admin accounts. Anyone who tries it, please do let me know whether it works or not.
You yourself, meanwhile, might look into your SPAM folder. I know, I know, but humor me, please.
Also, if you have been around for a bit, try and remember whether the email you entered there was also the email you registered with back in the when. I'm sure the email addresses associated to some user-accounts are still hotmail.
If none of that solves your confound, hit me through the contact form, or grab me via dm on the Facebooks, or if none of that works, speak up in the Midget Circus. I will look out for you there, but I can't guarantee nothing.

Rider from Portland, OR

Post by djmatthias » Thu Mar 04, 2021 3:07 pm

Hey y'all

I am a rider living in Portland, OR. I'm 44 and have been riding on and off my whole life. Have taken a break to raise kids, but I realized that I'm not getting any younger, and need to do things for me. Riding is one of them. I'm a social person, love meeting new people, and am hoping this will be a way to meet positive and community minded people. If anyone really cares ;), I ride a 2000 Honda Shadow Sabre, 1100. Been stolen a few times and rattle can painted, but she rides like a dream. Lots more to me, but I'll save that for later. Glad to meet y'all.

Eventually we will get to socialize again.
I wonder what it looks like outside this rock I'm hiding under?
I went camping last fall, the parks were open. The west coast is
exceptional for so much good stuff so close together!
I hope we'll meet someday!

Howdy from the other side of CONUS!

There are some lurker-types still on here in the Oregon area, including the Great Dark Poobah himself.

How the hell you find this place? :mrgreen:

Welcome from the far corner of the US, if for some reason you ever want to visit Daytona that is in my backyard.
It's time for Humankind to ditch the imaginary friends of our species' childhood and grow the fuck up.

If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?
