Forum passwords

The security level on this forum is ridiculous! Every time I log on I have to reset my password as I have to make it so complicated to be approved I forget it. Trying to remember a password which is:

Minimum 10 characters with upper case, lower case, numbers and symbols is virtually impossible.

Surely 8 characters and three character types would suffice??? The password requirements, on a simple car chat forum that doesn't have any real personal details (other than my email address), are more stringent than my banks! Its over complicated just for the sake of it.

Jamin_008_ or something similar wouldn't be too difficult to remember, but I'd suggest you don't use it

mnemonics are your friend, or phrases.

Good ideas gents, something related to this site will help me. None the less I can see me forgetting and resetting!

Or just write it down on a post-it note and stick it on the side of your monitor?

(more complicated solutions are available on request )
