I just joined, and I was editing my profile, and it asks for my paypal email and password… double-U-tee-eff…

I have a feeling it means your ThemeForest password.

Just to stop someone finding you still logged into the site on a public PC, changing the PayPal and stealing your money ;)

I thought that, but it seemed to let me edit the paypal id without putting in any password

@Daniel – That could be indeed a source of trouble and does look decidedly fishy. As Dan mentioned, your ThemeForest password is what we meant. Need to make that a little more clear otherwise it looks like we are harvesting paypal account details :O

As I understand you are able edit the payment address even with the wrong password. Can you confirm? Putting in the wrong password gives me this error:

“The password you entered was incorrect, please supply your current FlashDen password”

(Another mention of FlashDen! Grrrrr – Hard to get rid of them all)

Nope, doesn’t let me change it without putting my TF password in.

Just tried it again, and it doesn’t do it anymore.

maybe the first time it lets you do it without a password? still, thats a potential flaw.
