We need a way for users to recover their accounts password on the
website. This would take a lot of work off of the staffs hands and make it easier on the players. Almost every time I'm online, someone needs to recover a lost account, this system would make it so they could do it themselves with the proper credentials.

Info Needed to Recover Password:
Account name
Email (to recover the password with)
Secret question answer

I don't think it's wise to make the Pwd recovery require the email associated with the account, due to the fact that you can use in invalid email to make the account.
If not this system, then maybe a ticket system on the website so it's easier to get information about cases without having to have a direct conversation (also since many players don't use the forums)

+1 to this. But it should be very careful analyzing who owns what account. This system could also be a way of hacking accounts of people.

Well i dont know what hacking means to you but it means alot of different things for me like cutting, unauthorized access to a system/network, hijacking an account, cheating and alot more.

I've played alot of games and a password recovery method through a website is one of the ways to hack people. There are various ways to gain the required information for a password retrieval such as phishing, scam mails(ingame), or just simply gaining the trust of the prospect.

I apologize for not being clear on my point. If you still think i do not understand that specific word I will not argue since English is not my primary language and I might be wrong.
