Am I the only one who keeps locking himself out of this forum? I forget the password everytime my computer decides I need to retype it, this is the only place my password has to have uppercase, lowercase and a symbol, this is more security than my bank and credit card passwords! I simply can't remember it. Must be my age.

Get some white masking tape, tear off a short strip. Stick that on your monitor / keyboard / tablet or whatever. Write the password (your first and second names separated by a hyphen could work ..... ) on the masking tape and you should be able to see it every time you log on.
I don't recommend this method for credit card or bank passwords ..... 😄

I have a standard password that I reuse for all of the non important sites ( I know, I know ) and I just added a extra digit to that.

I know what you mean though

It's not the only site requiering "#&**()sdhjklhdfkLKLJKL".
I don't remember my password, Firefox does.
If I feel the need, I can find it somewhere in the options.
What I like is that I just have to click in the box for username and my name pops up.
Clicking on that also fills in the password.
Other sites, you need to fill everything in over and over again, so I don't visit them very often, unless the site is very important to me.

Talking of losing passwords reminds me of standing at the checkout of a supermarket a while ago.
The old dear in front of me put her credit card in the reader and shouted to her daughter 2 checkouts away,
"Julie, whats my pin number?" The dutiful daughter shouted it back and all was well.

I have my forum passwords logged on the computer. No banking information though!
