This is fooling people and I suppose that it is doing it's job.

There are other topics in the forums about it. Please do a search.

What I think you have to do is, type in the red letters and you should be good to go.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.

They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

Where is the search? I do not see the search field (globally).
I found it through the trick, but why was it necessary to hide the search on the forum?

It does not work. "V1 SHUTDOWN ON 2018-03-31" and etc too not work.

Yeah, we had a whole discussion about it... viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17104

Though, looking now it looks like no one created a JIRA ticket for it...

JIRA issue ONLINE-785, "reCAPTCHA V1 still used by ReactOS Wiki" was created on 5 May 2018.

The ReactOS web team is aware of the problem but for technical reasons cannot fix it right away. Please be patient.

avoid recaptcha v2

Replace v1 by v3, not v2 as v2 captcha is indirectly contributing to non-free proprietary software.

Yeah and who cares?

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

We will replace to whatever we can and if it is v2, then it is v2. Noone here will support fanatic GPLisms, we do what the used projects allow us to do.

It is incompatible even with opensource ethics by requiring anonymous prior contribution to third party. I do not oppose captchas in general but there are ones that do not make users contribute to a project anonymously without user noticing.

oh sorry, I saw this stupid captcha thing, would you forgive me if I ask here, it's related. So I was trying to login and messed up with the password, and after a few tries, it wanted me enter the captcha. the one that doesn't exist... since on its place "captcha is blablabla" written. So, is there now a way to login after one exceeds the amount of failed tries without captcha needed? I couldn't. So i went and reset my password, it got reset, via email, giving me a password made for me and happily notifying, that "of course I can change it thorugh a profile page". But. I failed to find that freaking place! Neither on "user control panel" on the "profile" tab nor on user info page, that shows up by clicking a user nickname link I couldn't find a "change password" option. Please, could someone point me? :)

When you see the broken reCaptcha, answer it by typing in the string shown in red letters then press Enter. It works like the old captcha that required the user to recognize letters.

To log in to the ReactOS web site, go to the ReactOS.org home page (front page). You may use the link in the upper left corner of this ReactOS Forum page. Then choose "Login" at the top of the page or scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. Unless you are already logged in, you will see fields for your username and password. Enter them.

I agree that the "profile page" is well hidden. Where is the profile page? I believe "profile page" is another name for the user page. To reach it, choose the link marked "MY ACCOUNT" that appears at the bottom of the ReactOS.org home page when one is logged in. The user page has three tabs. To change one's profile (including password) choose the "Edit" tab. Be sure to choose the "Save" button below all the fields for making changes. This records one's changes, if any, and returns one to the top of the user page. From the top of the user page one can use the links to navigate to the ReactOS home page and other parts of the ReactOS web site.

NOTE: A password change requires time to propagate to all the ReactOS servers for the ReactOS Forum, Wiki, JIRA etc. Normally this takes only minutes but sometimes may take a few hours. If it takes more than a day for your new password to work on all portions of the ReactOS site, please tell us about the problem.

thank you, middings. I finally found that page. It realy is this page. Interesting, I went there before, but it rejected to accept my credentials. Even now it worked from the second try. Still, even after authorization, it rejects the password change, saying "the current password is missing or incorrect", which of course is not true. But at least now I know where to try. :)
MY ACCOUNT link on the main ReactOS.org page rejects authorization too.
