I was trying to log-in here a few minutes ago, and found out that my freshly changed password didn't work anymore, while I used it to log-in yesterday without any problems.

Was there a system reset? I had to use the forgot your password option to set up a new one. Very weird.

I doubt that there was a system reset. I would have been affected as well.
It's quite possible that you just miss typed something while setting up the old one. It can happen. Also if someone knew the password from yesterday, the could have reseted it without permission.

I am 100% sure I didn't miss type it. It constantly told me my password was wrong. And as I said, I used the exact same password yesterday without any problems.

The password was created directly after the second time the forum was back and running.

I had no problems using my new password.

Does the forgot your password option involve emailing you a new password?

No, it does not.

The chances of you making a mistake are much higher than a new password being bruteforced in such a short period of time.
