Password suddenly stopped woking¶
If you’re a regular user of Our Cat Herder and your password has suddenly stopped working (specifically if reset does not appear to be working either), here are a few pointers to help you troubleshoot the issue.
Please note that having an Admin user remove your user from system and re-add is highly unlikely to fix the issue.

Have you cleared your browser’s cache?
Sometimes browser’s just get “confused” or hold onto old data - clearing or reseting the cache makes sure that your browser will have the latest information from Our Cat Herder.

Are you using a browser that is up-to-date or compatible with Our Cat Herder?
