Recaptcha no longer working

Phone post so brief.

I can't login on my desktop without captcha due to too many login attempts.

However, the recaptcha is not working and is asking me to direct site owners to upgrade the captcha system.

Can this be upgraded?

Also is there a way to reset the too many login flag on my account so that I can get around it

Cheers

There was a gap in registrations on the 15th, but 18 accounts have joined the site since then so it seems this part of the problem, at least, is fixed.

I still see an unavailable recaptcha when I try to log in or register an account. I'd post a screenshot but I'm on my phone. Can someone please reset the login flag for me if that's possible?

I've "replicated" this issue in Windows 10 and Kubuntu. (Got these on Chrome/Chromium in both instances).

If anyone is still looking at this I can confirm the above issue, at least when it comes to trying to register a new account. Also Chrome/Win 10.

okay, that was the scariest 12 hours of my life, I got locked out of my account on all of my devices (:O) and started panicking and decided to try resetting my password, which it turned out also reset the "too many logins" flag on my account so I'M BACK, BABY.

So the issue is still a problem for new signups, but you don't need to reset the login flag on my account.

If anyone is reading this and is locked out of their account, here's the workaround:

- Reset your password

- Open the "reset password" link in your email

- Login with your new password which let's be real is way more secure than the password you were using before

- Continue to make a nuisance of yourself on the mafia and site issues fora
