As Example:
normal board members: min. 10 chars
special members: 20 chars
vip members: 30 or more chars

is it possible to get this on work?

Isn't there really no possibility? at least to require at least 8 chars in passwords!

in ubb_profile.cgi find:

Code
code:

replace with:

Code
code:

This will require all members to have at least 10 character long passwords, moderators to have at least 20 character long passwords, megamoderators to have at least 30 character long passwords, and administrators to have at least 30 character long passwords. These seem a bit high, IMO, so just alter the numbers in the code above to shorten it.

Note that this opens a *minor* potential hole in your UBB, in that it doesn't check the ultimate length of the password field (which was previously 13 characters).

I know generally there are only 13 at max chars allowed, why exactly 13 and not e.g. 20 ?
& ThX for your support!
