Subject title: You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts...

'You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below.'

This comes up EVERYTIME I log in (and I honestly just make one attempt and am sure that I wrote the password and username right...)
Has anybody the same issue ? :shock:

Yeah, this has been happening to me for awhile. o .o

First login attempt gives me that error, and the second always works. :s

I have no idea why it happens. ^ ^;

It happens with everyone. It is the forum's defense against spam bots.

It is actually an error, but it's an error we all get because of the spambots, they crash the login attempts. Every once in awhile you'll be able to log in on the first attempt, and usually at the same time the mods have to clean up a ton of spam posts behind the scenes, I dunno why.
