Re-do the captcha protocol

Postby iiipopes » Thu Oct 25, 2018 10:22 am

Dammit. I know what my user name and password are, having used the same user name since signing onto the board and updating my password months ago (yes, it probably needs changing again, but not until this issue is sorted). Yes, I occasionally mistype my logon. I understand the need for security. But just now it took me at least eight times to try to log in, including clicking out of the forum and back in, before the protocol recognized my user name, password and captcha, t-y-p-i-n-g-o-n-e-c-h-a-r-a-c-t-e-r-a-t-a-t-i-m-e-t-o-a-v-o-i-d-m-i-s-t-a-k-e-s. Please fix it. To those of us who have bifocals or other kinds of glasses, (probably the majority), we need something else for a captcha when we accidently mistype to avoid the frustration I encountered this morning.

Another glitch in the captcha protocol:

When you mis-type your user name and password the first time, the screen, of course, reloads. But when you type it in correctly the second time, it will not recognize the correct user name and password combination and then goes to the captcha to log in. I know this is the way it works, because I did it on purpose just to see what would happen.

Made a few changes, we had the captha cranked to 11 to try hold back spammers, but with the changes we made with activation, I'm willing to try a different way

Thanks. The second try at logging with your normal user name and password still does not work. But I can see the captcha much better.
