New login data recovery system

Post by Admin on Tue Aug 04, 2009 9:29 pm

Reworked the system for registered players to activate accounts (used to have an issue when trying to copy paste the password sent in the mail that it added a whitespace at the end causing trouble for many new inexperienced people)

Changing email adresses is no longer linked to a risk of typing in the wrong mail and never having access to your account. Your old email simply remains active until the new email adress gets activated. So if the mail doesn't get through, nothing bad will happen.

Requesting passwords no longer prevents you from logging in with your current one until the new one gets activated (i.e. if some malicious user does it to prevent you from logging in fast enough when getting massed)


Whichever of these 3 things you do, you'll get sent a link on your email adress which you need to follow in order to activate your account (if you just registered) your new email or your new password.

This is coded already spent the last 2 days on it and tested every bit of it on the test server. I just need to write a script to send a chain mail to all registered non-activated users with an activation link otherwise they have no way of accessing their accounts (unless they are smart enough to figure out on their own to request a new link through the forgot-login-details page).
Expect release sometime tomorrow afternoon.
