IMPORTANT: If you don't know your DU password, UPDATE IT NOW
As part of our switchover to DU3 we will be importing all of your user data from DU2. When you log into DU3 for the first time, you will need to enter your username and the current password that you use to log in to DU2.

If you are logged into DU but do not know your password, click the "Options" icon at the top of this page, then click the "Change your password" link on the left side. You will be given the opportunity to enter a new password. This is the password that you will use to log in to DU3 once the new site launches.

You should also ensure that your email address is up to date. If you have any trouble logging into DU3, you can request a new password which will be sent to the email address that we have on file for you. To update your email address, click the "Options" icon at the top of this page, then click the "Edit account information" link on the left side. You will be given the opportunity to update your email address.

Please note that following these steps will not grant you access to the DU3 Preview if you have been having trouble logging in there. However it will ensure that you can log into DU3 when the site goes live, which is going to happen soon.

Thank you for reading, please k&r this thread so as many people as possible get to see it.

8. OK. I edited my password.
And I tried to update my e-mail address. It is showing an old e-mail address. When I tried to change to my current one, I received the message that the e-mail address was already in use. How do I change my e-mail address?

10. Thanks again Earl;
This is in regard to your message to me stating the above facts.

I had not been able to log into DU3 and had requested the reason as to why this was happening, or not depending upon your perspective.

It is my natural tendency to become paranoid and not being able to log into the new DU got me going.

No worries.

28. No, YOUR password is 7654321
Since you wanted it to be secure.

I do wonder what mine is though.

Sigh.

14. K&R. Suggestion: use keepass
Imagine only needing one password for everything!

Imagine having different, extremely complex passwords for every site you visit without ever needing to remember any of them!

Try this, it will make your life easier: http://keepass.info /

Trust me, I'm a professional. Don't be afraid of it. It's not scary and hard.

23. Have tried to update my e-mail address but it won't let me.
It is sending my password to an e-mail account that has been closed and won't accept my new e-mail account.

Help, please!

24. not really necessary
It's simple to go to the dialog in firefox to view all your saved passwords..

Though, i suppose many users might not know about that and hence spam DU with support requests ;)

25. Except that it won't recognize my password and is sending a new one
to an email account that I cannot access.

I know from the other thread on this subject that I'm not alone in this dilemma.

Not trying to "spam" anyone.

26. If you are logged into DU right now, you can simply go into your acct
and change the password without requesting one be sent anywhere.

27. Thank you, but DU3 is not recognizing my password
So I can't log in over there and when I try to it says "Password incorrect."

To have the password mailed to me is impossible because it won't let me use my current e-mail.

Thus my quandary. Thanks for the advice, though!

29. Verdammt: Mine Neither!!
BEFORE changing your password - make sure that you have an accessible email address!! A mistake that I nearly made.

Tried DU-3 & got the same PWD Incorrect Err.

So ...

Went (in Current DU) updated my email (gee - the one there was from long ago) and changed my pwd.

This new pwd works fine for Current DU (thus, am able to make this post)

But this same, new, pwd FAILS on DU-3!

Was ist hier falsch?

And, yes, though it is something that I rarely do, I allowed NoScript to grant full temporary privileges to all scripts at http://www.democraticunderground.com/du3/?com=login

Ah, see that the right place to report this is:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/du3/1240248
So posting there as well.

30. Natrlich: No Joy
Don't know what I was thinking - in order to report a log-in error at:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/du3/1240248
One must ALREADY be logged in ...

Joseph Heller, Sie waren so sehr korrekt!

34. Changing your password here will not affect the testing version of DU3
What you have done changing your email and password here is correct and you are ready to get on DU3 when it goes live.

If you remember the password you had in January, that one should allow you to log on to DU3.

33. Use the password you had in January
The user baseline was imported at that time, so if you know that password it will work on DU3.

To avoid this when DU3 goes live, ensure your password and email on DU are current before the final user snapshot is taken to populate DU3.

42. Well, I *thought* I knew my (now old) passwd: Apparently das war nicht korrekt
:banghead:
So, I guess that I will just wait to be 'populated' on DU-3 GoLive day with my new pwd B-) Das ist in Ordnung.

...

Just don't want to be left behind.

43. I was unable to log into DU3 with my existing password, and...
....someone suggested logging in with my old password, which worked; the old password also worked on the IPhone version. So, what are you suggesting now, that we switch to our old password in the present DU, so that we can use that one on DU3???????

Color me confused.

A couple of days ago I was able to login and post a comment over there. It must be a glitch.
