Hello,

 

I have had an account here for a few years under the username victorludorum. I'm not a regular user, but when I do use it I like to pay the annual subscription. I forgot my password and asked for a renewal link to be sent to my email address which is an Outlook address, but i have received nothing. I have been forced to set up a new account to post this message here, but I'd prefer to continue using my old one if possible as it has my history there. As another small point, I find the captcha images almost impossible to read with the black backgrounds. My screen is zoomed in, so that may be having an affect, but I had to reset the image many, many times until i was able to get it right. Is this a common problem?

 

Many thanks ;-)

 

Gary.

Hello,

 

Same problem here, when I tried to register on this forum, I never received the confirmations emails on my hotmail address, had to use another email provider. (So I have two useless inactivated forum accounts)

Is it possible to add a warning on the registering page to tell newcomers to avoid Hotmail/Outlook addresses?

 

I also had a hard time with the captcha: I never know if it's case sensitive and I can't tell if it's "x" or "X", "p" or "P",... Well, after some times I have successfully registered :-)

 

Olivier

Olivier i'm glad you have said something as there was concern from me with the amount of  accounts you had set up. I can close the others so not an issue there.
