Secret question/answers

Recommended Posts

I've added secret question and answer fields to user profiles. These details must be filled in at registration (and I think will flag up next time you edit your profile).


The details are only viewable by forum staff and are there to aid in account recovery for folks who have lost access to their primary email account.


Please ensure that the question/answer combination is something that is memorable for you (not "what is your favourite colour?" which could be guessed).


Effective examples of question/answer combos that could be used are are ones that ask you about a memorable name/place/number, but please don't make it a common question that could be guessed or easily researched.


Hopefully this will aid those who lose access to their main email accounts in the future.
