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?

    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.

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. Commented Feb 3, 2011 at 14:49
