When does the captcha stop? Takes me 5 times every time I try and post anything, most times I give up.

When your post count gets >= 5.

You're at 3 now. Keep posting useful content (not FS ads or intro posts) and you'll get there.

Aren't intros "useful"? ??? I had posted seven times in my intro thread and I was wondering why my post count was still "0".  :-[

I'll be so glad when I no longer need to mess around with this CAPTCHA nonsense. It's often near impossible to make out what the letters are. I now listen to the letters... but I swear, there have been occasions when the letters read out loud do not match the actual letters on the screen at all. Seriously.

Is there any way of changing the captcha to one of those box things that you just need to click? Just a suggestion

The captcha is frustratingly difficult, however the post count before it's removed is also crazy low.

Believe me, I'm at like 4000 posts and the captcha is killing me.  Sometimes, I don't mind it, but other times, I don't even...

Trust me, when you hit 15k and it finally stops, it's like the heavens have parted.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Tell me you guys are just messing with the newbs!   :o

Seriously, this CAPTCHA is a real turn-off for posting here. I understand the need to prevent SPAM, but there's gotta be a better way to screen out the bots after a registered member has proven their authenticity. If the CAPTCHA requirement actually does disappear after 5 posts or so... disregard my bitchin'.  ;)

It disappears after 5 counted posts.

Anything in the Intro, FS, or post orwhaying section doesn't count.

I'm aware of what was stated there. I'm also aware that it was posted 2 1/2 years ago. Sometimes rules/regulations/procedures change.

Anyway, this is my 5th non-intro post... and hopefully the last time I need to deal with CAPTCHA.  :haplo90:
