It's something I have meant to do for approximately nine years!

The next time you log in, your "password" cookie will be replaced with a "pass" cookie, which is a longish hex string representing a hash of your password. This will keep your password out of Cleartext in your cookies - a dirty little secret we've been carrying around far too long and YOU'VE been carrying around...in your browser.

You will have to log out and back in for your cookies to change. Old password cookies will work until I decide they don't (but I am probably too lazy to go through all the code AGAIN just to take that functionality out - at least, this week I am).

While I BELIEVE this has all been tested out and everything functions the way it should, please let me know if anything suddenly stops working. I didn't test The 7 as ruggedly as I did the main board, so you might see weirdness over there I may have missed.

(I've also cleaned up a few of our dialog pages which displayed totally useless and unnecessary "password" fields - the pages for new threads and new replies, for example)

More announcements to come? (Probably not.)

Do you guys know where people are coming from. Like if I was on ESPN.com and click to come here will you see that or do you only see when people find the site via a search engine?

We've been pretty transparent about our referrals for over seven years, but we can only log the information your browser provides us. So, unless you arrived here via an embedded link pointing to us, we probably won't know you were just at ESPN.com, for example.

That's one of the things that boggled my mind about the original ACMLM board. They put those in there for a reason, but I can't imagine why anyone would ever want to start a new thread without being signed in, then just sign in for that.

I did find a problem some of you told me about (before I experienced it myself just now!) where logging out wasn't erasing ALL of your cookies and leaving you in an "in-between" state - that's fixed.

Surprisingly I did notice the missing password on my new posts. Thanks for making that field disappear.

Apparently, CRZ had the foresight to register the http://weinerboard.com/ URL as well ... I don't know if this has been pointed out before, or if I'm the only one stupid enough to forget the "I before E" stuff.
