What should I do? They have tried ten times and failed. Should I make a new account?
It's a bot. There was a rash of this a while back with people who's screen names began with numbers and symbols. I don't think any attempts were successful. I guess they must have worked their way down to the "A"s. This is something that folks on the tech side will have to handle, on your end I'd recommend making sure your password is something that's unlikely to be brute-force cracked.

"Work is more fun than fun."
"Art is supposed to punch you in the brain, and it's supposed to stay punched."
Yea its probably the "A"s.
I got a couple messages about failed login attempts.
I'm just glad it's a bot and not a Person.
Did you recieve one of these E-mails:
Your account on ConceptArt.org Forums has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.
The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 126.96.36.199
Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:
All the best,
I just logged on to see if anyone else was having the same problem.
So what happens if one of these bots actually gets into your account? Spam?
i got 2
That IS what I got! Exact number too. It must be a bot.
its happened to me again. I almost wish I started my user name with a z to avoid all of this. heh
I'm getting it as well, from the same IP address. Glad to know it's not a person though.
