    When I registered there were 2 capcha's one was the typical number/letters the other was a 'vertical capcha' and i tried that bugger at least 15 times before I could register, it was quite confusing. Now I am not the brightest bulb on the tree, but by no means the darkest either...

    I almost gave up and went elsewhere, did anyone else have this issue? Hopefully no one was turned away from it?

    Other than that, this site has a lot of good stuff, the layout is a bit different from most other sites I'm on. Still trying to find the 'new post' or 'today's posts' tabs...

    Unfortunately these are the measures we have to resort to keep the spammers out.

    If you look to the left of your screen, you will see two links listed in your User Info profile window, "Recent Unread Topics" and "Updated Topics". Click the "Recent" link to see what's been posted, starting from the most recent and going backwards in time from there. Click the "Updated" link to see threads that you've posted to previously to see if any further posts have been made.

    Then there's the 12 absolute most recent posts shown in the "Recent Topics" pane.

    Thanks, I'm figuring those out right now!!

    Is there a place to see 'my posts' or something similar? With out going through every sub-forum and searching for my thread?

    TIA!! [8D]

    If you click "Profile" under the "User Info" panel (upper left), you'll go to your profile page and you can click on "Show Posts" under your user name.

    Rock on, thanks!!

    This forum is completely different than the +40 others, there is one other that is not like the rest either, but most of them are the same...

    Like those kids games, "One of these things is not like the others".

    You can check out https://www.funcaptcha.co It is easier for humans to complete ( and fun), free, and actually seems to be more secure against bots.
