Post subject:  User Registration - CAPTCHA & Spam Bots

I have been receiving several complaints that our CAPTCHA settings are too strict,
and it is simply too hard to read when registering new forum accounts, or making guest posts.

Today I tried to meet these requests by lowering the security settings of the forum, however as a result within half an hour, 3 different spam bots gained access to the forum.

After cleaning up, I have had no choice but to restore the CAPTCHA settings.


Please keep in mind, once you create an account, you wont have to pass the visual confirmation challenge when posting, this is only required by guest posts.

If you are having difficulties reading the sites CAPTCHA during registration,
please contact me at: contact at blueeye-macro com
Then I will create an account for you without the need of passing any CAPTCHA challenges.

In any other event, please only use the forum for support / messages / requests etc.
The email address is solely for the purpose of providing assistance during user registrations.

For general support issues, please refer to the "Features & Support" section, or contact me directly using forum PM's.

Thank you for your understanding.
