Amen, clearly none of the designers have even tried to post here. If they had, they'd see immediately why it's a bad idea. Having it on the login is the ONLY logical choice.

Yes, it's been slow to react to posting, and it was slow to react when I changed my signature.


 


EDIT: The Captcha disappeared when I quoted.

This has been a problem from the very beginning.  What happens is that when you quote and submit, the system takes you to the first page of the thread.  Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and your post and Captcha will (usually) show up.  Just enter in the Captcha and submit and you should be good.

Yeah, I've heard about it, but this is the first time it's happened to me. Seems like the admin won't be fixing it any time soon....

Still waiting for this retarded Captcha thing to go away to join the boards again.  Have the admins indicated it will ever go away?


 


Activity here has been minimal since it began.  It is a shame considering other forums I use haven't seen the need to resort to this dumb tool.

I see Captcha hasn't done anything to eliminate the troll problem.

I don't see how you would leave because you have to take 5 more seconds to post. Sure it's kind of annoying, but leaving the site?


I just did the captcha and it took me 4 seconds.

Do the admins exist?


And guess what, it just hapened to me!

It is annoying and sometimes takes more than a few seconds.  Sometimes the second word is near illegible and I would type in the wrong word or it takes me a few seconds to figure out what the letters are.


Sometimes I've had the captcha box not appear (while quoting) and my post disappears.


These difficulties happened enough times to turn me off from using the boards.  and it isn't just me.  Top posters used to have over 100 posts in a day, now the top post is usually around 13 and the amount of activity has dropped since captcha began being used.  Obviously i am not the only person turned off by this system as activity here has dropped off so much since Captcha began to be used.


Besides, as I've said, I've used numerous other forums, none of which use this captcha nonsense.


Some of us care about this site and want it to grow and be a welcoming place to new trek fans and members.  Captcha turns people away and inhibits interaction (even if just a little).

What turns people away? If they want to join startrek.com, then will they really not post if there is one extra step?
