Question "human verification" ?

Thankfully, my browser was still open on the hamshack computer with my password listed from my original registration, otherwise I would be stuck in verification neverneverland.
Yes I know that I should have written the password down, but I try to have unique passwords on all the sites I visit (its even worse to reuse the same password everywhere). I just found the forum recently, and was in such a hurry to register I forgot to commit the password to paper. (Its now done!)
There are a few site pages that require human verification, including the password reset page and contact the administrator page. The issue is that there is no CAPTCHA shown on these pages (I'm assuming that there should be one). Is there a chance that this could be rectified soon? Without showing something to verify your humanity, its kind of hard to submit the form
Just a request to your tech staff to modify the base code so the catch 22 is prevented.
73 everyone

Default Me too

I encountered this same problem in November trying to register.

Because I couldn't register, I was unable to tell anyone that I was really a human and that I couldn't register.

I was adrift for days in Human Verification limbo - not a fun place to be.

Its an acronym for "completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart") is a type of challenge–response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human.
Google, DuckDuckGo or in this case Wikipedia is your friend :-)

it's the form where you request a password reset.

that's the form except the captcha box was not there, and the two words "human verification" was
.
I tried it with chrome and IE11 on my W7pro computer
