Forum registration issues

Post by voidzero » 06 Jul 2016, 00:51


Just wanted to say that the forum registration confirmation image is extremely difficult to read... for humans! It took a total number of 12 attempts before I got it right. In between I had to delete cookies.

When I got annoyed after getting it wrong a bunch of times, I tried to email the forum administrator via the link that is shown at the bottom. But... that email address bounced, with a reason of mail address inactivity.

I don't mean to be rude (this is my first time post), but I'd like to submit this as a problem report of sorts. All in good faith!

This forum had big problems with a bad spam system.
People in cheap wage countries create a mass of accounts and feed it into automatic spam networks.

I don't know why admin mail bounce.

I have informed the admin about this.

I've had exactly the same two problems.

Captcha didn't accept my dozen or more attempts.

email bounced for the same reason.

I tried one more time, and, magically, it worked.

I also have another issue. I couldn't register under system rescue as the supplied browser didn't cope with the registration form.

These are niggles, however. On the whole, I'm very pleased to have found this rescue disk.
