So far I have had 1 member have this problem and to stop others having the same problem I thought I would post a warning.
When you post a photo, either a signature or just to show off a photo, anyone can right click the picture to find out the address. Normally places like Photobucket will have your username in the address.
Alot of users use the same username for various things, hotmail, EB, Photobucket, ebay etc. If you have a easy password - basically anything that is just a word, it is easy for someone to try and guess, or setup a program to radom guess your password and then use your username and password to log into various accounts. This has happened with a EB user with her hotmail account.
I ask that please try and change passwords at least once a month, and use harder passwords with numbers and letters and nothing like childrens name etc that are easy to guess. Another way would be to use a photo account with a username you do not use for other accounts to try and protect yourself from being hacked or having your account used for fraud.
