This is just a reminder for everyone on the server. It is probably not relevant to most people, but we had an incident with it recently. When setting your password, not just for minecraft but for anything, do NOT use your username for your password. There are a few reasons for this. Here are two big ones.

A.) You never know if or when someone is going to try to log into your account just because they want to guess your password, and
B.) You never know what will happen to any database of any kind. Somebody could gain access to it, and be able to scan for accounts that share the same password. Many people can do it, they just usually aren't malicious with any stolen data.

Here is a relevant document about choosing a secure password.
