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.

shamelessly stolen from an AMA press release:
Comment on North Shenandoah Mountain Project draft Environmental Assessment

Forest Service holding public meeting Aug. 22 in Bridgewater, Va.

The U.S. Forest Service has released the draft environmental assessment for the North Shenandoah Mountain Project, starting a 30-day comment period ending Sept. 14, and announced an Aug. 22 public meeting in Bridgewater, Va., to discuss the document.

Portions of the Shenandoah 500 route, one of the events in the AMA National Dual Sport Series, and the Rocky Run four-wheel-drive and ATV area, are within the project boundaries. The assessment includes the decommissioning of 100 miles to 200 miles of forest roads.

The project proposes forest restoration actions on roughly 9,400 acres of the 128,000-acre planning area on the George Washington National Forest in Rockingham County, Va., and Pendleton County, W. Va. The project goal is to create the forest landscape conditions described in the 2014 George Washington National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan.

A description of the transportation system on page 24 of the EA describes recommended decommissioning of between 100 miles and 200 miles of forest roads, and Appendix 3, the roads proposal, begins on page 173 of the EA.

You can view all of the documents related to the project here, or just the draft EA here. The Forest Service requests that comments be substantive and specific, providing suggested improvements to the document by section or page, with explanations. Only those submitting comments now will be eligible to file an objection to the final plan.

To submit comments, use the Forest Service website here or send them to Mary Yonce, North River District Ranger, through the U.S. mail to 401 Oakwood Drive, Harrisonburg, VA 22802.

Comment Deadline: Saturday, Sept. 14

For more information, contact Mary Yonce at the North River Ranger District office at (540) 984-410; contact Kevin Kyle, zone silviculturist, at (540) 984-4101; or visit the project webpage here.

Meeting time: 1 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 22

Meeting location: Bridgewater Town Hall, 201 Green St., Bridgewater, Va.

Thank you in advance for providing comments and/or attending the hearing. Please forward this alert to your friends and ask them to do both as well. If you do submit comments, please forward a copy to us at grassroots@amacycle.org.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling. That support will help fight for your rights-on the road, trail and racetrack and in the halls of government.

Join the AMA at americanmotorcyclist.com.

If you are an AMA member, encourage your friends to join by telling them about the many AMA benefits you appreciate and the role the AMA plays in promoting the motorcycle lifestyle and protecting the future of motorcycling.
I bet I broke some links in pasting, but if you need 'em, I'll do a better job of editing...let me know!
