I’ve recently heard from some of you that the process of registering on Parker Live (which is required once in order to leave comments on the site) is more difficult than it should be.
I hear you.
The reason registration is needed at all, and the reason it isn’t simple, is largely because of the amount of SPAM targeted at popular sites like this one. Without some ways to verify that you are a human being rather than a spambot, we are literally inundated with hundreds of fake registrations to fake email addresses.
We deal with this problem, as most other websites do, by using the ‘captcha’ test (asking you to write the letters you see in a picture) and maybe a math problem or letter identification test.
This morning, I’ve made that process much easier.
In addition, I’ve been made aware of a problem affecting about 15 new registrations over the past couple of weeks which were never confirmed. I’ve been able to correct that today too, which means that everyone who registered on the site should now be able to log in without any problems.
I hope this clears things up.
Thanks for visiting Parker Live! Have a great weekend.
UPDATE: ‘Invalid registration status’ error fixed.
