Contest Server Level Change Password

I figure I'd give out the contest server level change password algorithm.

On *any* contest server I've hosted, I use the following password:

  Code:
YYMM of when the contest started where:
YY = last two digits of the current year
MM = month number, 01 - 12

So if I started a contest in February 2014, the password would be 1402

It might make more sense just to use a static password. If you know the pattern, the changing pw provides no additional security. If you don't know the pattern, you can't get in anyway. With a static pw, the game will remember it for you and it will be easier for everyone.

What is the point of a password? Why not just turn vote on (if it isn't on already)

This is a good point. Now that voting exists, I won't add a password to my contests to allow people to change levels freely.
