Yes, exactly what I am talking about. I have to go through it twice as a matter of fact every time to log on. Using Firefox or Microsoft Edge browsers. To just post this response I had to go through three CAPTCHA responses. Two to open my account and once to post this reply.I think he may be talking about the Verify you are a human captcha things?
Yeah, interesting this is the only subscribed forum or app I have to pass through so many gates to log on and post. My various financial, health care portals and pay to play subscriptions have less scrutiny than this forum.I don’t know how the trust algorithms work, but maybe staying logged on will reduce the incidence.
That may be right. The last few times I was able to sign in without needing to prove I'm human.Maybe it's a function of how often you post. I'm on here all the time (surprise ...) and don't often get them.
😩Perhaps the forum doesn't like you basstodave.
That must be a nightmare! The reason I asked if you were using a VPN is because Captcha can be configured to flag "high risk" IP addresses and automatically flag the traffic as potential bot access. It may be that your IP address assigned by your ISP is in the risk categories identified by the Captcha configured. It may be worth asking site moderators to look into this.Not sure who you're asking, but if it's me, I had a long career as an IT guy on all sorts of platforms, so am reasonably knowledgeable. The Captcha issue here is unique to this forum, among the ones that I use. Other forums that use the same technology don't have the same sorts of issues. VPN vs no VPN makes no difference. I have access to and use several different browsers, although I favour the latest Firefox. Likewise, I have and use several different platforms including Windows, IOS, Android, desktop, laptop, tablet, phone. The problem occurs on all of them. But it's random. Some days are worse than others. It occurs less frequently on a desktop than on a mobile, but it happens everywhere.
I don't mind occasionally verifying that I'm a human, or whatever it is that the forum wants me to verify, but to be asked and re-asked up to 5 or 6 times to click on one of these things, just in order to make a single post, is, to put it bluntly, a big pain in the arse.
