I need to change my password from that jumble of mixed case, impossible to remember mess, I have.

I'm not keeping my fortune banked here, it's only a forum!

Where was this hidden?? I couln't find it!

Bob
I kept poking around and found it in the FAQ section. When I clicked on it though, It showed me my previous posting!?! ..
It wasn't until I clicked on that one post that I wound up in my own PROFILE?

Something isn't right, but I got it all taken care of (I hope)..

Ahh okay good -- I was trying to not look like a complete ass if you

... which is a bad abbreviation, when you consider that in the compuer world
CP means "central processor".

It's standard vBulletin syntax, not something I invented. (And "User
central processor" is so obviously gibberish that it couldn't *possibly*
mean that!)

Well, could you request vBulletin to provide a label for the hyperlink which
ordinary users could understand? For example: "Profile"...

Not that my own opinion matters, but I associate CP more with Control Panel
than central processor. CPU, surely, is processor, but I don't recall seeing
CP. I guess I've been through too many bulletin boards.
