Important: CAPTCHA and Post Moderation. PLEASE READ!
« on: February 18, 2012, 09:59:21 PM »
In an effort to fight spam we have implemented a post moderation system.

When you register for the PTF you will be initially placed into a 'Moderated' group. For your first 5 posts and PM's (private messages) you will have to pass a CAPTCHA. Your first 5 posts will also be held for moderator approval.

Once you have made 5 posts, and they have been approved, you will be moved to the PTF Newbie group and you will no longer have to pass the CAPTCHA or have your posts approved.

Hopefully this will help combat the spam.

A few tips if you are having problems with the captcha...

Next to the words of the captcha there are three blue buttons. The top one replaces the words with two new ones. You can keep clicking on that button until you find a set of words that you can read clearly.

Alternatively the middle button enables an audio capcha. You will hear a sequence of words that you can type in instead, some may find this easier.

The bottom button gives general help and advice on the captcha system.
