I recently subscribed to this forum and was sent an email containing my forum password.

This is not a good thing. It means that you're storing my password in plain text or in an easily reversible fashion.

While I use throwaway pwd's for forums, some don't, and what they use for this forum might be their bank, email account, etc.

With all the security shenanigans happening today, this is something that can be fixed and prevent GoldenEar for getting a black eye.

Thanks!

Could be, no one has ever mentioned it. The forum is a popular "plug-in" we purchase, not something we created, but I will pass on to our IT support people for comment.

Regarding the password/login...why can't I stay logged in? If I mess around on some other Web site for any length of time, it logs me out.

Number of things could log you out.

Yes, but it has just recently changed. We used to be able to stay on for hours on end.
No more.
