There doesn’t seem to be an “I forgot my password” link in the forum login screen like on other phpBBs, which I for one tend to rely on for forums I don’t post to on a regular basis. If this is an intentional policy change then what I did (went to another forum’s login screen then copy+pasted the appropriate part of the sendpassword URL) would probably qualify as an “exploit”.
