How do I change my password? March 25, 2002 9:34 AM   Subscribe

I've mailed matt twice about this, but he's never responded regarding this matter:

Given that we've got 17000 (maybe more) people on Mefi. Don't you think it's time we got ourselves a "Change Password" option?

I've looked and looked and I couldn't find a way to change my password.

There's someone who knows my password and has posted messages that Matt's deleted, and Matt's mailed ME the warnings.

Maybe I've not found out how to use MeFi's user profile thing, but considering that I've not been able to, many others also will be in my position some time.

Arnab, here and here are two very simple password-change threads which answer your question. The second is a classic. Can't resist asking, though: who would you expect Matt to e-mail about comments made in your name?!

you never told me over email what you wanted your passowrd to be, so I'll change it right now and email you.

But it was much enjoyed by those who read it, rhyax. I chickened out of going "Yay!" on Doublepost 2002, if it's any consolation. ;)

Matt: why is it better to have you change passwords manually than to allow people to do it themselves? Would DIY changes make it easier for assholes to find and steal the password list?

(By the way, I'll be sending you a change request.)
