WHY? Oh, Why!?

Dear Admins of this forum,

during the regitration process I've spent over 30 minutes to finish my registration.

1) I have to fill out this (sorry google human verifivation crap EVERTIME when there is another field missing (like the math verification stuff or a second misstyped password input). I am honest, that I dont want to feeeeed the algorythms of google, its a personal thing. But I think in general that this registration process is out of date. There are PLENTY of other technical solutions with which you would don't bother your users in this way.

2) The maths field is tooo small (for my old eyes), and until I recognised, that it ist not ÷, but + instead there are gone 30 min. ) And everytime I have to feed googles algorythms with human-decisions again. I find this really frustrating.

I appreciate winamp and I'm using it since 1999 until now. But please, please, think more of your users and get rid of this google crap!

kind regards,
E.

At 69, I can feel your pain. However in the modern world, "human verifivation crap" is a necessary evil due to many valid reasons. All you can do for now (other than stop using computers) is to slow down, count to 10 and carefully go through the process, until better verification technology is invented.

There are several features in Windows (and provided by 3rd party apps) that allow you to permanently or temporarily increase the size of what is displayed to help you better see it. Maybe the Magnifier in the group of "Windows Ease of Access" apps is all you need.

Good, at least we know now that you are a human being instead of the 50 bots that try to registrate here everyday and have to be banned

not to mention the trolls and the ordinary spammers.
So i'm glad that it isn't a walk in the park to be a new member of this forum.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

Welcome to Winamp Forums, ExMachina. My eyes are just now starting to fade at 42 years old. I'll likely have glasses before I'm 45 and some say I should have gotten them already. This, in addition to often using a living room TV far across the room as a computer screen makes reading text difficult. My trick is to simply use the zoom feature within the browser. There are many ways of doing this, but my preferred way is to hold the ctrl button on the keyboard and use the scroll wheel. Hitting ctrl and the number zero at the same time is the hotkey to reset to normal size. What brings you here?

Don't forget to live before you die.

Seriously.

The search for the ultimate signature continues apace. I have journeyed from the peaks of Nepal to the depths of oceanic trenches. I have crossed deserts, jungles, swamps, savannas, steppes and frozen wastelands. I have consulted with seers, swamis, sages, scholars and savants. The peregrination proceeds purposefully.
