Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Possible Duplicates:
Is it really neccesary to throw us to captchas more than once while asking a question?
captcha appears on meta prematurely

I just tried to post a question and did not fulfill all the requirement.
The first time my title was too small. I changed this and press "Post Your Question", I came to the "I'm a human being" page. Entered the captcha and got back to my post page where it stated I had to include one of the required tags for StackExchange.
When I pressed the "Post your question" less then 1 minute later, I got to the "I'm a human being" page. Should I really get to this page twice? Haven't I proven already that I am a human being?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

As shown in a very similar scenario, once you hit 200 reputation then you'll get a 5 minute grace period after the first CAPTCHA. This should prevent you from getting it so rapidly. – Grace Note Feb 3 '11 at 14:48
As an aside: see also balpha's excellent explanation about line breaks and paragraph breaks—thanks! :-) – Arjan Feb 3 '11 at 15:00

possible duplicate - Frequent human verification

The frequency of captha verification is more when your reputation is < 200

Allright. Thnx. I think it is about the same as the question you mention. However, it seems that this user gets it all the time. I only got it when I didn't fulfill all the requirements. – Paul Peelen Feb 3 '11 at 14:49
