Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Forum Password and End Spaces

I went back a ways and didn't see a post on this, but if it is a known thing please ignore.

Basically I typed too quickly and mistakenly added a space to the end of my password when logging in tonight and it still let me in. After retrying it a few times it looks like you can add any number of spaces after your password and still log in.

I'm not sure this is necessarily a problem since you still have to put in your normal password to get to that point, but I figured I would point it out.

    Initial spaces work too. Spaces in the middle appear to not.

    I think there's options along the lines of they can have it trim empty characters like a space from the beginning and end of what you enter so that it doesn't matter if they're there or not. This might be what's going on, and if it's the case then it's surely intentional.

    I think the # is probably one of those, also. The amount of times I've accidentally hit both that and Enter at the same time and a site's still let me in would point to that.

    If memory serves, Alpha set up some fancy Javascript to encrypt your password before it sends it to the server to prevent any man-in-the-middle attacks. My guess is that he set it up to trim excess whitespace before encrypting the password and that's what you're experiencing.
