4. Using ‘CAPTCHA’
In the unlikely event that CAPTCHA is enabled on the site please follow these instructions:
Captcha is just a means to stop robots from entering the site and it’s quite simple to use. It may even be disabled on the site to make registration quicker.
If Captcha is enabled, enter the CAPTCHA letters as they are shown on the page. If you enter the letters correctly it will prove you’re a human or a cat (dog or budgie) and not a pesky machine…. Oscar and I welcome all animals onboard….just so long as you are friendly.
