    yea so im new to this forum but is normal for people to try and log/hack into new accounts? or does it have to do with my user name? i use it on multiple forums and dont have issues.
    ive got 3 or 4 emails from tfw2005 about failed logged attempts.

    No one is trying to hack your account. It's default name in the name field, so when people type their password and forgot to enter their actual user name, yours is in there by default.

    So you are telling me it takes tfw2005 board members more then 5 attempts to figure out that they didn't put a actual user name, and apparently allot of them.

    granted some other forums don't email on failures but have not had a issue elsewhere.

    Don't know what else to tell you. Those are the consequences of choosing such a screenname.
