What about the AUDIBLE ones I have seen on other forums etc... From what I can see, it will actually tell you what to enter. Performs the same function. AND it can be used along with the pictorial one as well.

Just a thought!!

I too had problems with this -- it probably took me 20-30 refreshes to find one that I could read. Glad to hear that some different options are being looked at.

Want some cheese with your whine?icon_smile.gif Just kidding! Welcome to the forums.

I'm not colorblind, but it also took me a bunch of refreshes to get a security screen I could read. I'm glad you stuck it out, and in no time you will be glad too.

Hopefully you've noticed that as a newbie voicing a criticism of this site, nobody got defensive about it or called you down like would happen on some other sites. Instead the webmaster and at least two moderators by my count chimed in to welcome you, thank you for voicing your concern, and promise to look into it. And they meant it; we play nice here!

Now, go smoke some meat!

Welcome to the forum!

Captchas (the security string) are unfortunately a necessary evil for forum admins. But ya know what, you made it and that was probably the hardest part.

This site runs like a well-oiled machine so be assured of that.

I recommend Jeff's 5 day e-course and heavy use of the search function.

Good luck and get back to smokin'.

I'm colorblind as well, and don't remember the signup being painfully hard, but that may just be because I've done them so many times I'm used to refreshing a couple times, lol!

Welcome to the board!!

Hey glad you figured it out. We always like to hear from new members. There are alot of things I have never figured out and never will but it's all good!PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

I don't remember if you do or not, and I haven't read through the thread, but having an audio option for the CAPTCHA would solve this problem.

Also, I've seen some CAPTCHA's that simply ask the user a random question that could only be answered by a human. For example, "What is the day before Tuesday?"

I prefer the latter approach, because you can have such a long list of questions that a spambot would never be able to figure all of them out.

Just my .02 and thanks for the best forum ever, BTW. smile.gif

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Glad you found your way here.. I found this one pretty easy. But i will say there is another bbq board that is much harder. I consider myself to be of at least average intelligence, and i spent 30 minutes trying to register at that board, and never could get it figured out. Figured it was gods way of saying that it wasnt meant to be.

Anyways, welcome!!
