NBCi new indexing style?

This past week I was submitting to nbci and I got sent back after trying to finnish the form. On the form it had something to the effect of "UKJD" so I typed it in and it went through. I was wandering if it was a new way nbci is getting their database in order. Does this have anything to do with the new PFP listings.

I believe this is to prevent people from mass submitting to the directory, or at least slow them down a bit. It makes it so you have to enter the number it spits out, into the box provided, thus preventing people from just clicking the back button and loading a category with multiple pages. Make sense?

That makes sence. I was just wandering what the letters mean, possibly names of different catigories. If nbci would give a list of what those mean it could make submitting eaiser, on the other hand it may not.

Those numbers are generated randomly. I have seen 50megs.com do the same thing when signing up for a free account, to prevent people from using the back button and just changing out certain info and clicking enter. This makes it so you need to go through the entire process each and every time from start to finish, because you're not able to use the same code twice.....
