Just wanting to share my little adventure so it can benefit future members, maybe.
Just read the latest Sinbad no Bouken scans and saw you were looking for staff, so braced myself together and decided to apply.
Reaching the forum > OK
Finding the register page > OK
Registering > ......................... took me literally 27min to register...
1) the captcha picture is one of the most unreadable mess I've seen across the internet, the first time in 10+years on the internet I ever had to click that "another one" button, and several times in a row too (maybe it's just my laptop screen...?)
2) the password requirements are too high quite like protecting your bank account with 8+ characters including upper case, lower case and numbers is fine, but wouldn't people pick something light and easy just to enjoy a forum (and requirements are not even listed next to the password field, or maybe I missed them...?)
3) password not matching the requirements make you have to find another readable captcha again (hai, my fault for not noticing there wasn't a green mark next to the password before pressing submit...)
In any case, almost felt like a dungeon you know
I'm annoying and stubborn enough to want and conquer it, but it might discourage many other potential volunteering staff, maybe.
Unless it's the trial to show one has the determination and will be a dependable and worthy staff
