I wanted to log into the forum today. But before that I got the request to change my password. My password was long with 36 different characters. I am interested in why this request came :o

This has just happened to me as well.
I don't get it, why? Doesn't seem related to the link as that sounded like one-off thing.

This quote from the linked post
(you will need to choose a new password on occasion)

I thought I was pretty clear in that post:
I'll enforce a password change regime (you will need to choose a new password on occasion)
The fact that it happened for many people at once the first time (and clustered this time) is simply because "on occasion" is a set number of days.

Oh. I missed the "on occasion" part.
