Login attempts decrease to 3

Post by Tarogasini on December 3rd 2008, 2:31 am

I was thinking... Should login attempts be decreased ? I think that 9 is FAR too much... I mean : if you forgot your password, doesnt make any difference, because if you couldnt remember it at 3rd try, you will hardly remember it at 9th. And due to security reasons - somebody will be able to try his luck 9x to get into your account.

Its just a thought, that i honestly didnt manage to think well at 2.27 AM ( my time ).

Not really mate.

Also, don't forget it could be Bots who are looking.. but I don't think it's all Bots..

Also, lets see how much they DON'T like security when some idiot tries to hack them and suceeds.. and then the lose their Forums.

Thanks for liking my idea too... btw.

I would like to resurrect this idea again and say yes.....change log in attempts to 3 or lower it to at least 5. I went to log into my forum and some one already had 9 attempts trying to log in under my user name. He didn't succeed but i had to wait 90 minutes before i could log on again.

I think 5 times would be enough as well.
