Witness slips. Tedious, but done.

Firefox autocomplete helps in filling them out.

Tabbed browsing helps. Open all "proponent" slips n new tabs, and remember to tag off "proponent" for them. Then do "opponent" slips. Helps keep them straight.

Done, Capcha is terrible...
When picking a firearm, you want one that is like a heavy chick. A gun that is reliable, doesn't mind getting rough, and one that goes bang every time. What's the point of having something pretty looking it isn't up for the task?

I've tried that but when signed in the Capcha caption doesn't load. If someone has a workaround that would be great.

Once you're registered and logged in, there's no more capcha and everything is already filled in. You specify opponent or proponent, record of appearance, and submit...
