This is a new forum and the user credentials from the old forum do not work here. Thus everyone needs to register as a new user.

One of the downsides of captcha is that as bots get smarter, captchas often need to become more difficult in order to help weed them out. Unfortunately this often means that captchas are a frequent source of frustration for human users.

Hi penrose

If you were using the username & password from the old site you wont be able to log in, as you probably realised you need to re-register for this site, you'll also have to put up with the captchas a while longer, I think for the first 5 posts, after that you won't asked again

Key Captcha is now for registration and a single posting only :)

Effectively, once you get past first post moderation you shouldn't see it again.
