Thread: This anti spam puzzle thing....

  1. #1

    Default This anti spam puzzle thing....

    Cant you guys do something else? I mean, it is so tedious. I try dragging one piece to where it belongs and drop it, but oh no, its not close enough. Then I try dragging it closer by moving my mouse ever so slightly, but oh no, I went over.

    It is very frustrating. Isnt there another way to prevent spam?

    Hello,

    Well after we switched to one of the most popular forum platforms vBulletin you also get more people who try to hack and find loop holes.

    Simular to why Windows has so many more viruses/malware created specifically for that OS when compared to the Mac.


    So people are always hammering away trying to find way to do thing and we had individuals who where using scripts or bots or something to bog down our server with lots of repetitive searches

    So we had to put reCAPTCHA in place as a road block.

    Sorry its annoying at times.

    Also the puzzle does not have to be 100% perfect to be accepted.

    There is an allowance for getting a puzzle piece close enough

    You will know this when you complete the puzzle it will fade out and in the upper right corner you get approval with a green check mark.

    See my example below. I didn't line up the two puzzle pieces exactly and left gaps and it was accepted.

    So it not that hard and difficult to use this.
