    It also puts us in a precarious position if something goes wrong, and that's not something we want for SFFWorld.

    Something goes wrong? I am the jedi master

    Nah I understand. Always a multifaceted issue when discussing network infrastructure.

    Tip of the day for everyone...

    Use complex passwords.

    What are complex passwords you ask?

    A few basic rules:

    Minimum Eight characters in length.

    Must contain any three of the four following catagories:

    a. Upper Case
    b. Lower Case
    c. Number
    d. Symbol

    Avoid using words or names.

    It is really very easy to crack a password that isn't complex using various techniques (brute force, dictionary attacks, etc)

    Peace

    ...and don't use the same password on multiple sites.
    If your SFFWorld password is the same as one you use elsewhere, I'd suggest you change it (or both! And make sure they're complex like 3rdI said)

    I was thinking more about the legal side of the donations or prize draws, if I'm honest. Whilst something likely won't go wrong, if it did then we'd be in a poor position.
