    New password recovery questions.

    In an effort to improve the function of the dMw Forum there is a plan to add an automated password recovery system. Part of this system will involve choosing a memorable question and answer as part of the password recovery process.

    A lot of thought has gone into these questions. Also a significant amount of consideration has been given to the current state of the world. So as to try to stay 'in touch' and 'in tune' with the mental state of our members and to make the questions appropriate for the current times, the following questions will be given as options for password recovery.


    • What is the name of your least favourite family member?
    • At what point did you give up all hope?
    • Which is the most valuable item that you have either lost or had stolen?
    • What was the make of the first car you owned that broke down with an uneconomical repair bill?
    • At what age did your first childhood pet die, go missing or run away?
    • What is the one thing you would love to be good at but at which you are utterly hopeless?
    • How old were you when you learnt that Father Christmas was dead and that your parents were clearly pathological liars?
    • What sports team do you obsess about so as to avoid having to develop any serious emotional connection to other people?
    • What is the name of your favourite TV show that was cancelled mid season?
    • What was the first name of the first boyfriend/girlfriend who dumped you?
    • Why are you so unpopular?
    • In which year did you discover the hopeless futility of life and it's utter lack of meaning, resulting in you totally loosing all sense of wonder and joy and giving up completely? (We recommend you do not use 2020 as your choice for this question.... it's far too obvious. If you are a US citizen then 2016 is also probably not an advisable choice either)
