Registration Confirmation code

Post by kl1k » Mon Mar 01, 2010 3:17 pm

I've just registered and not sure if its just me, but the confirmation code is impossible to read. Took me about 20 attempts to get it right :(

Chief's comments echoed, apologies you had trouble here.

Sadly we are up against the doom of automated spam bots. Due to their destructive nature we have erred on the side of making the code harder to read, accepting that sometimes users may have to e-mail to ask for help, in order to block them 100%.

The result is that we have had no automated spam postings and our moderators have not been swamped as they have only had to deal with manual spammers which are easy to neutralise. I'm always happy to setup accounts for users who are having trouble (I'm the one that collects all the "admin" e-mails) - the link to the address is on the registration page.
