Hello,

I just registered here, and I noticed a small glitch during the registration process that I thought I'd report, just in case no one was aware of it. When it comes time to enter the Captcha phrase, there is a message saying something like "These words too hard to read? Enter reset to get a new phrase." Well, when I pressed the rest button, instead of resetting the Captcha phrase, it just emptied the password fields. Tried a few times with the same result.

Just thought I'd let someone know.

Sam,
I just tried in Chrome on Mac and the link worked as expected - it created a new captcha and left the password fields alone. What browser/operating system are you using?

And welcome to CodeRanch!

Sam, I just had a look at the registration page. I have attached a screenshot of the captcha area from that page. It looks like you perhaps misread the instruction there. For generating a new captcha, the user is expected to click the "Generate a new one" link, not the Reset button. Clicking the Reset button, as you noticed, resets the other fields.
