    Hello!
    So I'm a forums warrior and over my time here I have seen a whole lotta things which occur often to people who then come here, to the forums to complain about their woes, e.g. 'false' bans and lost 2fa codes. Today I have suggestion that could help prevent people coming and saying "I have lost my 2fa code."
    So how this thingy would work is that when you login to cosmic you can (if ya want) do /Password setup (or something easier) where it would then give you a list of things to do which (for example) could be that first you type in a password that would be required to be entered with the same frequency as 2fa does.

    So you type in a password, then press enter, then confirm the password, then enter, then it would come up with a thingy saying "Recovery codes mee these safe" AND ALSO "would you like to add a recovery email, Yes or No" then if you click on yes in chat you would then type an email followed by the password you just setup, then it would slide you an email verification with a code to enter in game.

    This would be totally seperate to 2fa and would not replace it/cancel it out, you would be able to have both together or either individually, but if you have a 2fa'd account the 2fa key (the regular one u enter when logging on) would need to be typed before setting up password protection...

    I think this could be used by players who cannot be bothered with 2fa and want a simpler option of keeping their accounts safe, one with a recovery options that can't be easily deleted on accident... (and one that doesnt require opening authy or whatever whenever u want to login), and the email would help players who forget their password. It wouldnt be as secure due to a un changing password a d thats why you can have both...

    Plox vote in poll (even though it means nothing).

    Shiva does false ban but Ypperin will unban those who are falsely banned.

    Everyone knows that if you lose your 2fa codes you lose your account. Have 2fa on multiple devices!

    1. Its not a suggestion about false bans, I think most of the posts are bullshit, hence me writing 'false' with da ' ' around it.
    2. Yea people do know that but its easier to remember a password and as I said in the suggestion it would be in addition to 2fa not a replacement of it. It is something some players may prefer to 2fa and its harfer to get locked out with it.

    The problem with passwords is that the vast majority of people use the same or similar passwords as other accounts...

    I don't think a modded Minecraft server has the nessesaru security measures to hold passwords for thousands of players and not get hacked. If those passwords are leaked, there would be pretty significant damage done.

    -1.. MC has a password for a reason and if they bypass that password I feel like they just could this password as well.... If you want to remember a new password why couldn't you just remember your backup 2fa codes at that point or simply tape them to your computer or write them down on a note book near it..

    oke you guess a random 8 number code and see how far you get. 8 number codes (the 2fa on prisons anyways) has 8 numbers. Easier to remember and not able to hack unless you want to try over 10,000 codes go ahead and hack that mimermans account!

    btw you can reply to me as I said it and not just xell as this community is heard by all;)



    Hehe these fonts are COOL

    If you think about it, it is easier to "just guess" a 2fa recovery code cuz with it its 10 numbers from 0-9 to guess from and you know there are only 8 numbers, with a password there can be a bunch more and letters and numbers
