I would like to update my password for the Halfbakery to a stronger one. There should be a way of doing this???? [marked-for-comment]

       On my profile page, there's a box for "password" - if I change this, does it not change my password?

       //if I change this, does it not change my password?// Yes, but [xenzag] doesn't want to change *your* password

       Ah yes, that would be so.

       On your profile page there is a box for "password" but the only password you can enter there is the one you currently use, otherwise anyone could log in to your account, so the question remains: how do you change your password?

       If I go to your profile page I don't see the 'password' box - only you see that.

       // On your profile page there is a box for "password" but the only password you can enter there is the one you currently //   

       Not IME. I changed my password using that box a few months ago, shortly after the site came back up and I saw it supported HTTPS now, meaning it was worth having a new password to avoid impersonation (even though I presume passwords are still stored unhashed, but I think I've never used the same password here as elsewhere so that's neither here nor there). I do recall a little bit of weirdness in how it operated, but I think that was just because of one or another of my 49* browser extensions.   

       *I counted just now; it may have been a different number back then.

       Yes, I just changed my password using that password box.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 01 2019
  

       What did you change it to?
hippo, Mar 01 2019
  

       I changed it to "password".   

       Then I changed it back.

       If I'm understanding this correctly, on my profile page, where the password box is with a row of asterix symbols, I can type in anything and that will be saved as my new password? I just don't want to get shut out by doing something stupid.
xenzag, Mar 01 2019
  

       Oh, just send it to me, along with any credit cards numbers you have to hand.

       // I can type in anything and that will be saved as my new password?// Worked for me.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 01 2019
  

       Ok - thanks. That's clear enough.
