Now, let me say this. With enough time, and effort, any password is vulnerable. What we need to do is make it so long a task that its not worth it.
Here, i'd like you all to post your tips and tricks on how to get and remember a good password.
Heres a few to get you started.
- DON'T TELL ANYONE!
Seriously! Keep your passwords to yourself. No-one needs to know them, with the exception of a parent/guardian.
Don't share accounts, or if you do, type the password for them.
- Migrate your Account!
For minecraft accounts, if they dont know your email, then the chance of them cracking your account is HUGELY reduced.
I also recommend NOT using your username in the email address to make it more secure. This applies to the website too.
- Capatalisation and numbers
This has to be the easiest method of securing any password with minimal security.
Basically, a single random capital letter in your password makes a 6 letter password change from thousands of possibilities to millions.
While this is still not much in the way of protection, it throws time into the cracking mix
Throw some numbers in there too, and you are greatly improving your security
- Use special characters.
Sometimes, boards and games will allow you to use special characters in passwords. Use them if possible, they are usually used last in these cracking programs.
- Make it long.
"ManyHadALittleLambItsFeetWasWhiteAsSnow" is a good password and is easy to remember.
I know of some people who use phrases like this in all their passwords.
(I even know of someone who used "DarnIsTheGreatestAdminEver2012" and "LazerWasOwnedByA12YearOld". [lazer will know who used the last one ]
- Mix it up
Take 2 word you know that are around the same length. and mix them.
Secured and Password
Take the word password and type it out, lower case:
Now, using the arrow keys, go back to between the p and the a, and start typing the second word, this time in caps. after each letter hit the right arrow key once to skip a letter in the word "password" :
(right arrow key once and hit E)
(right arrow key once and hit C)
(right arrow key once and hit U)
(right arrow key once and hit R)
(right arrow key once and hit E)
(right arrow key once and hit D)
Now you have the password: pSaEsCsUwRoErDd
Throw some numbers in there to make it even more secure.
- Randomise it!
Yes, I'm British. That is spelled correctly!
Most of my passwords now, and many of the admins passwords, are random.
I have a good memory for passwords, so i can just remember mine, but others write theirs down. If you do this, make sure the written copy is secure too. Don't leave it on your pc if its shared.
As a tech support for my local area, the amount of people who have super strong passwords on their banking websites, then ask the browser to remember it is unreal. Put that with a password like "Password1" on their computer login screen, or a book of passwords beside their keyboard and the password becomes useless.
Remember, your computer user password does not just keep your little brother out, it keeps hackers out who use website vulnerabilities to gain access to your computer.
A good password here will make alot of difference to the novice hackers.
- Change it!
The biggest pain for someone cracking a password is a user who changes theirs regularly.
Post them below!
- Player with Donor Ranks, racking up XP thanks to its multiplier, giving it to all his/her alts.
- Same as above but in the other sense, high number of players focusing all their XP on a single account. Imagine this with clans/large groups!
- Banned players storing their XP safely somewhere else, or players who cheat and are not yet caught doing the same.
- Black market. People would start trading XP for items and viceversa, creating a black market where we would have zero control over. Moreover, people can pay for XP and thus this could lead to "diamond sword for 5$ of XP". Not exactly something good, huh?
- Scamming. Who would send the XP first? Of course this could be resolved with some hard coding, I know. But something fair to point out.
- Security issues: someone break in your Shotbow account, worse he can do now is changing your signature.
- Tons of work for us to keep track of the transactions and eventual complains of "help I have been robbed!". Currently even Admins cannot mess with EXP and is safer for everyone.
In other words, the XP system is born with the intention of rewarding the player for his/her playing, specifically; or his/her support to the server, you got the point. If we would allow trading that principle would be voided and would advantage quantity over quality instead of the opposite we have right now.
Just like you cannot transfer premium membership between different accounts, you won't be able to transfer XP among accounts. The number of exploits, problems and complains that would rise up by opening trading far outweighs any possible benefits.
So said the Majicou... And Lazer, here and here especially. Now you can stop asking for it!
