This happened once before and after I asked I had a new temporary password PMd to me here about 2 hours after the fact.
Don't know how much has changed since I've been gone and if that is still possible. Can't imagine that it isn't though.
There are only two persons able to edit rights: Wimpy who's away for two weeks and Perr who isn't involved in our stuff and can only be reached through PM on IRC.
Things are quiet at the moment. It's september and many are back to school or to work. Others are on vacation.
And the ban rule is applied to everyone. Three wrong login attempts and you're out from both the site and the FTP. This can sound harsh but the admins have taken measures to prevent intrusions. Believe it or not, they even had to disconnect the server months ago because of an attack attempt. This policy was made for security not to persecute you in particular. This happened to me often and recently Gilou also had the same issue.
