    9/12 IMPORTANT UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENSION AND GOAL ADJUSTMENT, REFLECTED BELOW

    People who attempt to make a profit off of torrenting are harmful to our community. One of the most common types of said person are those who hack accounts and then sell the invites on those accounts. Hackers are able to gain access to accounts with weak, old, or reused passwords. In an effort to bolster the security of our users, we are planning to implement password expiration (passwords would expire upon becoming 2 years old).

    The problem with implementing password expiration is that on roll-out day, nearly 100,000 users would be affected. That number is far too high for us to deal with. So, we are asking you all to reset your passwords before we implement this new feature.

    In case us asking isn't enough, we are offering some incentives, detailed below.

    Over the course of the next 4 weeks (August 17 - September 14) through September 23,
    1.Each user will be awarded 10 Freeleech Tokens upon resetting their password (one time only, to expire a few weeks after the event concludes)
    2.If 50% of the site resets their password within the event, there will be a 2 day sitewide freeleech *NEW
    3.If 70% of the site resets their password within the event, there will be a 3 day sitewide freeleech *NEW
    4.If 90% of the site resets their password within the event, there will be a 4 day sitewide freeleech
    5.Invites will be closed for the duration of the event

    (Note that leech disabled users will not be able to download using their Freeleech Tokens)

    Please choose a unique password. A majority of compromised accounts are due to reused passwords. See this wiki for some best practices and tips regarding password choices. Please also take this opportunity to make sure your email attached to your account is up to date.

    Please help us spread the word about this event -- tell your friends, inviter, and invitees. We need your help and cooperation to successfully implement password expiration. Thank you, and good luck.

    That's so many users, though. Most people that frequent the site would have done it already.

    2000 password changes every 36 hours. so 50% is very possible. get your seedboxes ready.
