Hi there :)
i'm not sure if i understood correctly what you're saying cause pms shouldn't need a verification image, please care to explain?
You're Gruby, from Microkey and so on right?

I've never seen that here, maybe something that occurs with different user level/statuses/approve-ness ?  Probably an attempt of SMF at trying to stop bots signing up & spam PM-ing userbases...

nice, thanks for the info i will try to check it.
I guess it must be what idoru said, some kind of protection to avoid newly registered users to spam others with pm or something, strange it doesn't work but i will look at it.
btw, welcome Gruby, i edited a couple of your latest microkey dats to fix 4 or 5 tnc mistakes, will sent them back to you later i guess if you're still interested in working with them.

edit: its a protection, it shows that when you have less than 5 posts to avoid bots and spammers, i can disable / change the limit but probably will try to fix the bug first :P

It's probably worth keeping it to be honest if the bug can be fixed.   When the forum goes "public" I'm sure we'll get some dickheads with a short attention span that 5 posts would be too much for them to get past :P

well was testing it now, the image appears in firefox but not in ie, it must be a small bug in php code that makes the image url seem strange and since IE sucks it only gets displayed in firefox, since i don't have much time to figure out why i guess i will report the problem in their forum and disable the protection for a couple of days, then get it active again when it is fixed :)
