Do not like the codes.

Postby DrG2 » Thu Nov 20, 2014 2:33 pm

This is the third post I've had to use a code to submit. I do not like this. Is it going to be a continual thing?

Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

it wouldn't be bad if it was a one-time thing, or even once a day, but it's irritating me. It's not always clear which character is represented, although it seems to have been reduced to a 4 character code, which is a step in the right direction.

First you complain about the spam, and now the method to prevent it. I can see we're not going to have happy campers on this site ever again.

Frankly, this is the first I've ever seen a CAPTCHA for making posts. The ones I've used have prevented individuals from registering altogether.

Just checking to see how the codes work. Don't see a problem with it if it solves the problem. Clearing the spam was way too much work for Paul and Terry, and it was only band-aiding the problem, which was getting worse each day.

I just entered and had to use the code. Is that what is called a CAPCHA? If not, what is it?

As for the code, due to the pale green and pink letters, I had to use the magnifying glass to read them. I don't mind a small code, but why the pastel colors?
