Registering for the forums is now easier (for humans) because yesterday I switched the spam-preventing service to a different one.

 

If you're a robot, you'll probably still struggle with it. :)

 

If you know someone who tried to register but couldn't because they couldn't pass the Captcha ("letters and numbers") test during registration, please let them know it's much easier now.

 

As always, you can register using the "Create Account" button at the top right of any forum page.

 

By the way, the whole reason to have the Captcha test is to keep robots from registering in the forums and then spamming us like crazy. We definitely don't want that.

Well - I must be a robot. I think it took me 6 attempts.

 

Izzy - you're on top of this forum thingy, aren't you?!

I knew there might be a problem when it took me three tries to create my original account. Haha. :)

 

And yes, I'm doing my best to stay on top of this!

Haha, it took me several attempts to register, too! But I was determined to do it, can't let a simple Captcha stop me! LOL :lol:

It took me several attempts, too. You had to be very persistent, so definitely no robots here. LOL! Happy to hear it's easier now. :)

Okay, so much for that plan. It's now harder again because too many spambots were getting through the system. Approximately 20 spammer accounts were joining per day, so I had to increase the difficulty again. Sorry to new forum members, but it might take you a few tries to get the challenge right when you register.
