It has come to my attention that several users have had trouble logging in. The problem appears to be with the captcha system.
If you are directed to a page stating you have exceeded the maximum number of log in attempts and asks you to enter a code from the captcha be sure you enter the letters all in lower case, even if they do not appear that way in the captcha.
I believe this is a bug with the phpbb software, for some reason it is not recognizing capital letters.
This should solve any issues you might have but please feel free to contact me if you need any further assistance.
