As a newby non-coder admin, I appreciate your efforts to improve your excellent product, which we have been using for three years now. I am particularly excited about being able to add a judicious bit of colour here and there for important notices to new users of our forum, and I am sure many others will be too. Congratulations, and no one can know just how much work has gone on behind the scenes, I am sure, so thank you sincerely.
In my view, this is a real problem; on a retail site recently, I reloaded the reCAPTURE six times on a high-rez screen and could not decipher any of them—so contacted the owner directly. I wonder if this was the intention! :)
And thanks for the info. re. only one word being needed by reCAPCHA. I will try that.
