sorry(kruffley)

sorry but I still find this far from user friendly.
and why, oh why, do we need those authorisation codes to post? before we used our password

I keep trying to get on with this but … I’m bored and cheesed off now

I must say that I tend to agree with you. It seems so uninviting now and is putting me off. I preferred the old way.

I didn’t get an authorisation code but did have to do the loop of logging in and out a couple of times to get here.

I am guessing the authorisation code is to prevent spam which has popped up today. These codes prevent automatically generated spam entering the site but like you I find them a nightmare to decipher.

But we don’t want the board cluttered up with spam and it would drive the mods mad if they had to find and delete all the spam if it became a heavy load…

I thought it had been there all the time ?

The solution is surely only to require new users to submit to the CAPTCHA test?

That way long terms posters are fine, and its just new user who suffer for a period.

There is no way will will be able to continue if CAPTCHA is put in place. I find it hard enough without Any more security put in place. For those of us with sight issues it’s not the answer.

What’s the quick reply button?
