This is more of a complain than a suggestion honestly 
I hate when a site forces me to use certain things in my password since am the kind of guy that has a password or two for all his accounts anywhere and i hate when the site is gets literally unusable until you change your password ....
With that said can you please remove this system and just make the shape of the password up to me instead of forcing me to use certain characters in it?

Get a password manager. Having a password or two for all your accounts is questionable in 2019. It was a bad idea in 1999 and hasn't become a better idea over time. There's no reason the system should change to accommodate that.

Ya i know it doesn't provide much security but am the kind of person that can't remember more than 1 or 2 password so i use em for all my account maybe because i suffer from ADD maybe it's just more comfortable for me but am not asking for something that would compromise the security of the site at all , it may compromise my own account's security but it's my account after all , i mean people can still use a complex password all they want, but i don't like the limitations because it will lead to me forgetting my password a lot and having to change it many times which could be frustrating , plus the majority sites over the internet does not use a system of limitation like this one when setting a password even though we're in 2019 so i don't think am asking for something impossible, and since i feel this way towards the password system in here i believe i won't be the only one feeling this way, you get the point am trying to make?

Fair point - I do think it's worth reading about password managers. I only remember one password but I have over 200.
