Always captcha

Post by NewRisingSun » Thu Nov 21, 2019 12:50 am

Since this masterful forum upgrade, every time I log in with correct credentials, I am asked a second time to log-in because of supposedly too many login attempts, and that second time, a stupid captcha has to be entered as well. The forum software must either forget to reset the login attempt counter at a successful login, or it is a similar case as on the wiki, namely, that it sees the same IP address for every person and thus incorrectly thinks that it is getting bombarded with many requests from the same IP.

Not only that, it's an extremely bad captcha, which won't stop any bots at all.

Indeed, now it seems to be corrected.
