How to update your password and log in

Discussionist was offline for several weeks while we patched security holes in our forum software. Now, the site is open again to all visitors.

If you have not done so already, you must update your password

We've found no evidence Discussionist was hacked or that member data was compromised, but as part of our security upgrades we are requiring all registered members to change their passwords before logging in. To verify that you are the person responsible for your account, you will need to provide the username and email address associated with your Discussionist account. After you have entered your username and email address, you will be emailed a temporary password along with instructions to log in to the site. After logging in, you will be prompted to select a new password of your choice.


If you have received your temporary password and you want to log in, click here.

If you do not remember your username, click here.

If you no longer have access to the email address associated with your account, click here.

If you have exhausted all the other options and you are still having trouble, send an email to for assistance.
