verification questions are RIDICULOUS
« on: May 16, 2017, 10:01:39 PM »
I can't read the captcha things. I can read every other websites, yours just suck. Listening sucks to, B,V,E,D all sound the same!!

And the 3 human verification questions for EVERY DAMN POST, when I'm already logged in??? Apparently I'm a robot, cuz I pass EVERY TEST EXCEPT TYPING "STEAM"

Yea, sorry about the awful Captcha, the good news is that you dont have to worry about them after 2 posts, so you're safe now :)

Unfortunately, we get hit pretty frequently by a lot of spam bots, and they're "smart" enough to pass a lot of the images included in SMF (the forum software we're using). I don't plan on using a newer forum software, so these CAPTCHA are the only spam defense we've got.

As for the question which requires STEAM as the answer, thank you, there was a mistake, which I corrected. It should now be working properly.
