captcha & question after every post?
« on: December 22, 2012, 11:12:10 AM »
Sweet lord I am only 3 posts in and the captcha response questions are all ready making me want to slit my wrists, forums bots can't be that much of an issue surely?


Edit- Well now I feel dumb, guess it's only for the first 3 posts? Touche admin Touche....

We had an invasion a couple of weeks back so I had to tighten the anti-spam measures.

I hate captcha too, but not much else I can do right now.

It's only for your first few posts so it's not too bad.

Unfortunately it was necessary to do this due to spam bots.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but as other have said, it's only for a first few posts.

Captcha is almost impossible to read by people with bad eyesight which makes big number Fallout fans.  ;)

I had to click dozen times just to get one barely readable, isn't there something like math problems as protection? Like 2+2=?

I've found the only way to solve them is to click "Listen to Captcha" and a recording will pronounce the letters for you.
