I need to reset the password of my account moonkid@posteo.org

How can I do this. I found nowhere a I-forgot-my-password-link.

If you are already logged in, go to https://www.cpdn.org/home.php and click on the password link in the Account Information section.

If you are not logged in, go to https://www.cpdn.org/login_form.php and click on the "forgot password?" link under the word "Password:"

If for some reason you don't have either of those links, make sure you are not trying to access the password change links through a VPN or through the TOR browser which may not work.

I am not logged in into the relevant account.
I "forgot" the password (more precise: my password manager does)

There is no such link.
No Tor or VPN.

Is it so hard to contact the admins?

Security is very tight here at Oxford these days.
The IT people won't reset your password unless you can prove who you are, which is pretty much impossible over a computer network.

Sorry but this reasons are incompetent.
I can prove that I am moonkid@posteo.org when the admins would send a reset-link to that adress.
It is a simple I-forgot-my-password-process.

Going tohomepage I just tested it. fill in email address and then click on the forgot password link. I just tested it and it works. If you are not seeing the link (below left from the box to input your password at least on the browser I tried) try using a different browser or deleting all the cookies stored for cpdn.org.
