Why exactly do you need to use a password longer than allowed ? Short ones are better to remember anyways …

Warum genau möchtest du ein Passwort verwenden, dass länger ist als erlaubt ? Kurze kann man sich eh besser merken …

You remember your passwords?
I assume they use as password manager which can generate and store passwords of pretty much any length... We generate passwords with 40 characters by default.
We don't see a reason to have that limit (technical or otherwise)

Well … whoever placed that limit must have had a reason for it ! ;) But I guess Gijs could be convinced to remove it.

btw thx for copy and pasting from gtranslate. i really need to know the exact translation of every reply in german but i have no idea about how to use a translator

d'ailleurs, merci pour le copier-coller depuis gtranslate. j'ai vraiment besoin de connaître la traduction exacte de chaque réponse en allemand mais je ne sais pas comment utiliser un traducteur

What is going on here? Can we please get back do kind behaviour andtackel the original posted issue?

@Rainer, are you reffering to the forums password?
If yes, think this is limited by the forum software and probably needs intervention there.

Hi and welcome to the forum Rainer!

Looking forward to some nice contributions. Please note that communicating respectfully usually works better in a community like ours.

Regarding passwords: we've got a forum update coming up in the coming weeks that will, among other things, remove this limit of 30 characters.

Regards,
