Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

NOTE: If this has already been fixed, sorry. I just haven't gotten a CAPTCHA in some time, so can't see what's happened.

I've noticed that, when you get a CAPTCHA, at the top, it always says "Login"it doesn't say anything, even if you're already logged in. This was very unnerving the first few times I got it, while compose a question for a long period of time. When I saw that it said "Login"it said nothing instead of my display name, I thought that my session had ended. Thus, this may be confusing, the first time you see it.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but if it is status-bydesign, I think that CAPTCHA pages should reflect authentication status, too.

UPDATE: Here's a pic! Notice, no logged in status at the top, not even "login"! CAPTCHA
